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.

Timothy is the Senior Editor for America Tonight with more than 20 years in media. Curiously enough, he started off within agricultural journalism (he's from Georgia, after all), but soon moved from articles about peaches to something more intense. He attended the University of Central Florida, receiving a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences and minoring in Crime, Law, and Deviance. At first he took a job as a traffic reporter (mostly to conquer his fear of heights, he claims), but after a month of relatively peaceful work was asked to cover a live police car chase. This was a game-changer: by the end of the same year he was leading the newsroom. Tim also loves to promise that he's quitting "next year", moving from New York to New Zealand and becoming a writer, but we don't believe him. He loves us too much.
