Mexicali Drug Tunnel to U.S. Found!

Calexico Drug Tunnel House

Calexico Drug Tunnel House

U.S. authorities on Wednesday seized a cross-border tunnel that ran the length of four football fields from a restaurant in Mexicali, Mexico, to a newly-built house in Calexico, California, following an investigation that netted more than a ton of marijuana and resulted in four arrests.

The drug raid has started with Mexican police entering El Sarape restaurant in Mexicali, Mexico, and capturing two men, Zuleth Yesennia Duarte Medina and A‎drián Guadalupe Armendáriz. El Sarape is located on Bravo 140, Centro, 21000 Mexicali, B.C., Mexico with a telephone number of +52 686 554 2287.

Prosecutors say the first tunnel shipment occurred Feb. 28, leading to the seizure of 1,350 pounds of marijuana in Los Angeles.

The tunnel was the 12th completed secret passage that U.S. authorities have discovered along California’s border with Mexico since 2006. They have found more than 75 along the entire U.S.-Mexico border in the last five years, mostly in California and Arizona—many of them incomplete.

“This house and tunnel were constructed under the watchful eye of law enforcement,” said Laura Duffy, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of California. “For the builders, the financiers and the operators of these passageways, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. We will seize your drugs and your tunnel before you even have a chance to use it.”
Two men were arrested Wednesday in Calexico—one at the tunnel house and another at a house believed to have been used to store drugs—and charged drug trafficking crimes, authorities said. Two women were arrested Tuesday in Arizona, including the purchaser of the Calexico house.

A fifth suspect has been arrested regarding the drug tunnel in Calexico. His name is Agustin Enrique Cruz. He has been indicted on five counts, including construction, financing and use of a tunnel, money laundering, maintaining drug related premises, among other counts.

Homeland Security Investigations said another house and a warehouse in Calexico were designated to store marijuana until drivers could take the drugs farther north.
Cruz along with a co-conspirator traveled from Arizona to Calexico on several occasions throughout November 2014 and December 2014. In January 2014 Cruz and the co-conspirator found the property on Dool Avenue and Third Street in Calexico and purchased it for $240,000.

On June 18, 2015, based on the wiretap, the co-conspirators discussed the funds needed to construct a house on the property. On July 28, 2015, it was determined the cost would be $86,000. In September 2015 agents saw Cruz and the co-conspirator at the property on Third Street.

During a court authorized wiretap over Cruz’s phone, agents intercepted calls where Cruz and his father discussed the conditions inside the tunnel, which had become operational at that point.

Two of the other suspects arrested in Calexico, Joel Duarte Medina and Manuel Gallegos Jiminez, were in court on Thursday, March 26, 2016, but did not enter a plea.
