From an article in Yahoo News:
LYNDEN, Wash. – Federal agents have shut down an elaborate, 360-foot drug-smuggling tunnel dug underneath the U.S.-Canadian border âââ the first such passageway discovered along the nation’s northern edge, officials said Thursday.
Five people were arrested on marijuana trafficking charges, U.S. Attorney John McKay said in this border town about 90 miles north of Seattle.
The tunnel ran from a quonset hut on the Canadian side and ended under the living room of a home on the U.S. side, 300 feet from the border. Built with lumber, concrete and metal reinforcing bars, it was equipped with lights and ventilation, and ran underneath a highway.
The passageway was 3 1/2 to 4 feet high and wide, and ran anywhere from 3 to 10 feet below ground, authorities said.
They point out that many tunnels have been found between Mexico and the U.S. but this is the first tunnel found between Canada and the U.S.
But wait here is the funny part:
Francis Devandra Raj, 30; Timothy Woo, 34; and Johnathan Valenzuela, 27, of Surrey, British Columbia, were arrested Wednesday. They were charged with conspiracy to import and distribute marijuana. Raj owns the property under the quonset hut, authorities said.
Raj, Woo, And Valenzuela??? Well it is a multicultural group anyway. I am sorry that is too funny.
