Drug-smuggling tunnel discovered under KFC

The tunnel entrance was found inside a former KFC in an Arizona border city

Critics rapidly raised concerns, saying a wall would only stop foot traffic, not tunnels.

Sniffer dogs reacted to his vehicle and officers soon found 168kg of narcotics inside two toolboxes - worth £1million. Authorities found 168 kilograms of hard narcotics in two tool boxes.

Mr. Brown noted that the three kilograms of fentanyl seized during last Monday's traffic stop amounted to "over three million dosage units" of the deadly synthetic opioid.

Police conducted a traffic stop August 13 on Ivan Lopez, during which they say they found hard narcotics in the trailer of the truck Lopez was driving.

Back in 2016 authorities discovered a tunnel running between Otau Mesa, in California, and Tijuana, Mexico, that was almost half-mile long.

At the abandoned restaurant, agents found a hidden tunnel large enough for people to freely walk through, taking people under the Mexican/American border.

The tunnel is 180 meters, height - 150 cm width - 90 cm It lies at a depth of 6.5 meters and leads up to the Mexican city of San Luis Rio Colorado, where it ends under the bed in the bedroom of one of private houses.

The abandoned fast food restaurant was in an ideal location to slip drugs into the country, standing just 600 ft inside the U.S./Mexico border.

Brown said his agency has been seeing an increase in tunnels, which are expensive to build and take long periods of time.

Although Lopez only bought the building in April, it's still unknown to authorities how long the tunnel has actually been in use.

Footage from the discovery shows a red rope hanging over the tunnel's entrance. But in Arizona, authorities found a new structure that reminds us that tunnels come with interesting twists. Lopez, a resident of Yuma, Arizona, had reportedly been spotted carrying the same drug-stuffed toolboxes from the building earlier in the day.

The tunnel is still under investigation.
