Sophisticated Narco Tunnel found between Arizona and Mexico

Translated for Borderland Beat from a Proceso article by Otis B Fly-Wheel


Naco Arizona :

Agents of the Office of Customs and Border Protection, confiscated this morning 2.3 tonnes of Marijuana in a sophisticated narco tunnel located in the city of Naco, Arizona, 355 kilometres  north east of the Sonora Capital.

The American agency informed that the investigation started last night when a squadron of anti narcotics agents detected an unusual movement of vehicles at the frontier with Mexico.

There they mounted an operation with drug sniffing dogs, who found the passageway built with wooden pillars and cement walls, equipped with a hydraulic mechanism to transport the drugs.



The height of the tunnel is approximately 1.70 metres so that a person may walk along it freely. The length of the structure is currently unknown, it is the responsibility of the aerial squadron of the USA agency to use radar to determine the dimensions of the tunnel.

Mexican authorities were notified about the discovery, and in the next few hours will inform the agents about the location of the entrance on the Mexican side of the border.

A special agent of department of Interior Security, Matthew Allen said that drugs captured had a value of 3 million dollars on the black market.

This represents another major blow against the Mexican drug Cartels, who import this contraband either in the air or under the ground.

Inside the Tunnel


Also during the operation, they achieved the detention of 2 Mexican citizens located in the immediate vicinity of the residence in the city of Naco, as well as the drugs they located 3 firearms in the tunnel.

Since 2006, the USA agencies have located 80 narco tunnels in the states of Arizona and California.

    1. Your stupid those 2 tacuachones were probably the watchers of the tunnel getting paid 2 pesos a week. The real drug pushers don't stay there for long periods, they just go pick up when the drugs are there ready and leave with their SUVs, Trucks loaded, or with other type of transport.

  2. On the american side, they protect protected species from being endangered, or the ''suspicious cars'' were found unoccupied, or sumpim'
    --also, it is suspicious that no meth, cocaine or heroine were found, it is what makes the most money, per kilo, mil mascaras, per kilo, also H, is the best to go away from it all, very far away, oftentimes forever

  3. When they pour concrete into the tunnel, they should first fill it with drug dealers who contaminate our children.

  4. Big Whoop! I'm not impressed at all. "major blow" my arse! Just a drop in the bucket in the long ago lost "war on drugs". Anyone in the public who believes these lies, I have a 120' yaght to sell you for only $5,000. Legalize, tax and regulate - that's the only way to go. By keep things as they are, we only enrich corrupt politicians and law enforcement on both sides of the border. That's the real truth.

    1. best comment I've read in a long time... That mainly summarizes this entire illusion of a "war on drugs". Follow the money! Can someone please follow the money and let us know where its all going? Every bit of it, the laundering, the money made from gun sales, car sales, house sales etc... Also, how much are these politicians making, legally and under the table? And no, I'm not referring to looking at the Mexican politicians, we already know about those. How about our politicians hear in the good ol' US of A ! I feel like in their eyes, the deaths and drug addicts are just collateral damage in the grand scheme of being able to fund projects that the public should not know about... Or correct me if I'm wrong our patriot Oliver North! People don't forget...

    3. Off topic, The pope sent an e mail to a friend about the drug abuse in Argentina and said he didn't want the "MEXICANIZATION" to happen . This use the Pope!!!!! What a racist comment. Mexico is almost 100% catholic, he has no shame and hopefully God can talk some non racist comments to him.

  7. How can they put agents 24/7 on street level drug dealers, yet they couldn't do the same damn thing with that tunnel?? they couldn't wait until the 100s or tons of kilos of coke, heroin, meth were getting loaded and catch the real pushers on the Act?? That is some total bullshit!

    >> "Mexican authorities were notified about the discovery, and in the next few hours will inform the agents about the location of the entrance on the Mexican side of the border."

    By now the owners of that tunnel the Cartel group,,, must know that their shitty marihuana and tunnel has been seized.. thats before the North American "Authorities" are informed of the tunnels location on the mx side. What a fucking joke bunch of CORRUPTED son of bitches&hoes.

    1. at 3:39 so you want them to wait until they cross 100s of tons of drugs and let that go out on the streets until they figure out who's in charge? you're a fucking nutcase. It doesn't matter if they figure out who's pushing the drugs through the tunnel. They're from Mexico. U.S isn't going to waltz across the border with an affidavit you dumbass. Thats why its better to just seize the drugs then in there and cover up the tunnels. even if they catch the guy who's distributing in the us they're will be another and another and another. 20 years from now hundreds and thousands of young children will be in the game. Around THE WORLD.

    2. 1:43 Can't you read moron?? it says that they could have waited until, the big pushers on the american side were exactly on the act moving the 100s of kilos, or maybe in the worst case for them moving it by the ton out of the place, with their vehicles loaded and everything. In other words they could had put surveillance in the place, waited until the big narcos went back again to pick it up, with evidence on hand and everything, they don't gotta go to mx to make the arrests right there.

      Yeah right, what you know about that. 20 years from now we are going to be extinct, if more monkeys like you keep popping out of every where. idiot?

    3. Plus they could have figure out all the networks linking to the big narco trafickers of that tunnel on the american and mexican side. Including their 'warehouses' where they stash their tons of dope and also their dirty millions. like the 1996 bust? stupid agents of 'customs and border protection' they messed it all up, fucking pendejos. Lol

  8. This is the same city ( Naco ) where 7 tons of cocaine and 1.5 million dollars was found in a tunnel in 1996. I agree with the above poster that it's very suspicious that only cheap marijuana was found. This tunnel could've been used for a very long time and as always they've said it was used for 6 months. That's total bullshit. Just another reason I can't stand the crooked ass American legal system and anybody that represents it.

    2. 7:15 Yeah i believe i heard that story, some narco owned some sort of company close to the border where they used those big contruction trucks, the tunnel was located right at the place where those construction trucks used to get in and out of, working supposedly, that way moving tons of drugs right in front of the idiot agents.. .. ..

  10. The tunnel was discovered after Bisbee Police Department found about $3 million of marijuana during a traffic stop.

    The officers pulled over and arrested Luis Jacobo along Highway 92 and Wilson Road, after they discovered 200 bundles of marijuana in Jacobo's moving truck.

    Federal agents traced down the narcotics to a property owned by the suspect's father, who is also named Luis Jacobo. After the agents searched the property and found evidence of drug trafficking, which included the cross-border tunnel, they arrested the property owner for conspiracy and transportation.UPDATE: Tunnel related to $3M drug bust stretches 905 feet across U.S.-Mexico border

    1. DEA told Bisbee PD to pull that truck over. These guys were getting snitched on before the drugs were even the US yet. They just waited so that DEA could have a story so they could cry and make their case against the drug war so they can continue to get more funding. Even if the war on drugs was being one, DEA would probably let drugs come in just to continue getting money.

    2. Not true at all. Dea wasn't the reason n it was pulled. BP was conducting surveillance on the house because they found it odd there was always a uhaul looking truck at the house.
