NOGALES, AZ - Federal authorities say they've shut down a drug smuggling tunnel found in the Arizona border city of Nogales.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents identified the tunnel Tuesday after seizing more than 2,600 pounds of marijuana from three suspected drug smugglers.
The tunnel is approximately 90 feet long, 3 feet wide and 3 feet tall.
Authorities say approximately 45 feet of the tunnel is on the Arizona side with an additional 45 feet in Mexico.
They say the tunnel had ventilation tubing, tools and an electrical cord.
Agents say one of the three arrested was an 18-year-old Nogales man. The other two were a 19-year-old man and a juvenile, both from Mexico.
