NOGALES - Customs and Border Protection confirms the discovery of a drug tunnel along the U.S. border in Nogales.
CBP tells News 4 the tunnel was found Wednesday by Mexican officials on the south side of the border. The Tucson Sector Border Patrol was notified and through investigation determined the tunnel extends 59 feet into the U.S. near the intersection of East International Street and Nelson Avenue in Nogales, AZ.
No drugs were found in the tunnel, which CBP says appears to still be under construction.
The case remains under investigation by the Nogales Tunnel Task Force.
