Authorities have publicized information about a colossal drug trafficking operation held underground — literally. The operation took place back on March 19th, 2020 in San Diego, California and resulted in uncovering a warehouse filled to capacity with more than 4,000 lbs of drugs from Mexico.
The storage was only a part of a 31-ft deep underground system that consisted of a 2,000 ft-long railway tunnel. It stretched from San Diego to Tijuana, Mexico, making a convenient route for smuggling illegal substances across the border.
That trafficking system could be around for several months judging by the state of the construction.
Heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, and fentanyl were among the seized varieties. Their estimated street worth would have been just a little under $30 million in total.
No suspects have been taken into custody as of April 1st when the announcement was made.
