The Mexican army has discovered a tunnel in Tijuana’s Otay area. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed the discovery but couldn’t immediately say whether it was being used for transporting drugs. “At this time, U.S. authorities are aware of a tunnel discovered by Mexican law enforcement officials near the Otay Mesa border. However, we have not yet determined whether the tunnel entered into the U.S.” The property surrounded by the Mexican army and Tijuana’s municipal police was used as a parking lot for cargo trucks, according to neighbors. The lot is a few yards from Tijuana’s international airport, just across from the newly reinforced fence that divides Mexico and California. Marco Sotomayor, Tijuana’s chief of police, said that for now, they are only guarding the site since the search warrant has not yet been issued. “It is expected that the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) requests the search warrant of the judge and to be granted, and in this case it would be the federal ministerial authority who does the search of that property,” he said. Sotomayor said the investigation was done in conjunction with other security agencies.
