Massive drug tunnel with rail system discovered at San Diego border

A major drug tunnel has been discovered under the San Diego-Tijuana border, a roughly 1,800-foot passageway that came up in a warehouse in Otay Mesa, where U.S. authorities seized more than 20 tons of marijuana, according to U.S. and Mexican officials.

In Mexico, army troops raided a warehouse in an industrial area that concealed the tunnel entrance and seized four more tons of dope.

The back-to-back raids occurred Monday night and Tuesday morning in a light industrial area with a long history of tunnel activity.
