Patrol agents discover 142-foot-long tunnel at U.S.-Mexico border
Border patrol agents discovered a yet another tunnel at the U.S.-Mexico border in California, the El Centro Sector Border Patrol agency confirmed on Sunday.
A spokesperson for the agency said the tunnel was discovered during a routine patrolling along the border just a couple of miles east of the Calexico, California port of entry.
Rodney Scott, sector chief of Border Patrol said in a statement, “This agent saw something that didn’t look quite right and it turned out to be a tunnel.”
The tunnel is just 18 inches in diameter along the banks of the All-American Canal. But it was wider and equipped with electrical wiring inside. At one point it was more than 3 feet in width and 142 feet in length.
The tunnel’s origin started nearly sixty 60 feet south of the international border in Mexico.
This is the third tunnel discovered in the El Centro Sector area since April last year. Last month, a long tunnel was found along the Calexico border. Previously, an unfinished 80 feet-long tunnel was found just along the Nogales-Mexico border.
