U.S. Customs Seized 30 Tons Of Marijuana From A Secret Tunnel Under The U.S.-Mexican Border

When federal agents busted a trailer loaded with tons of marijuana, little did they know that the haul would lead them to one of the most high-tech smuggling tunnels they had ever seen. Indeed, its scale and complexity were undeniably impressive.

After 9/11, at a time of heightened security, a specialist taskforce was assembled to crack down on underground drug smuggling between the U.S. and Mexico. The formidable team included officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Border Patrol, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Mexican authorities.
