TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - The Mexican army says it seized more than 40 tons of marijuana at the entry to a secret tunnel that crossed the border to the United States but didn't have an exit on American soil.
The army said the tunnel found Thursday in Tijuana extended nearly 400 yards - including more than 100 yards into San Diego. It began in a warehouse where soldiers found a trailer filled with dirt, shovels, drills and other equipment.
The tunnel was lit, ventilated and equipped with a rail system.
It was the second, major incomplete tunnel found on the San Diego-Tijuana area in two days and the third along the U.S.-Mexico border in a week.
A completed tunnel was discovered Saturday in a strip mall storefront in the Arizona city of San Luis.
