It was discovered this week by agents of the San Diego Narcotics Task Force. Officials said the passage was equipped with electricity, ventilation and a rail system. Agents seized 8 tons of marijuana and 325 pounds of cocaine in connection with the tunnel. The officials did not say if arrests were made.
