Police in Mexico found 2 tunnels that lead into California


Police in Mexico discovered two tunnels in the border city of Tijuana that lead across the U.S. border into California. 

The tunnel entrances were spotted near several warehouses across from Otay Mesa, officials explained. The Attorney General's Office said they believe the tunnels were used by the Sinaloa drug cartel to move drugs across the border. 

One of the tunnels leads to San Diego, California, and the second is still under construction. 

Officials did not say exactly how long each of the tunnels was or where the one that stretches into San Diego ends in the city. 

Photos from the Attorney General's Office show that the tunnels are equipped with rails and trolleys. They were also disguised behind fake cinder block. 

Fox News reports that the U.S. consulate in Tijuana had previously reported that the tunnels had been reactivated after not being used for an unspecified period of time.

Similar tunnels were found earlier this year. One ran a half-mile from a home in Tijuana to a lot in San Diego, Fox News reports. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
