US authorities have found a secret drug tunnel stretching from a former KFC in the state of Arizona to Mexico.

The 600ft (180m) passageway was in the basement of the old restaurant in San Luis, leading under the border to a home in San Luis Rio Colorado.

Authorities made the discovery last week and have arrested the southern Arizona building's owner.

They were alerted to the tunnel after the suspect, Ivan Lopez, was pulled over, according to KYMA News.

During the traffic stop, police dogs reportedly led officers to two containers of hard narcotics with a street value of more than $1m in Lopez's vehicle.

Investigators say the containers held more than 118kg (260lb) of methamphetamine, 6kg of cocaine, 3kg of fentanyl, and 19kg of heroin.

Agents searched Lopez's home and his old KFC, discovering the tunnel's entrance in the kitchen of the former fast-food joint.

The passageway was 22ft deep, 5ft tall and 3ft wide, and ended at a trap door under a bed in a home in Mexico, said US officials.

The drugs are believed to have been pulled up through the tunnel with a rope.

This is not the first such discovery - two years ago a 2,600ft tunnel was found by authorities in San Diego, California.

Authorities said it was one of the longest such drug tunnels ever discovered, used to transport an "unprecedented cache" of cocaine and marijuana.

In July alone, US Border Patrol seized 15kg of heroin, 24lbs of cocaine, 327kg of methamphetamine and 1,900kg of marijuana at border checkpoints nationwide.

美国废弃的肯德基餐厅地下竟藏着惊天大案

美墨边境一家废弃的肯德基内暗藏玄机——这里可以直通墨西哥进行贩毒。

据英国广播公司(BBC)8月23日报道,美国官方在亚利桑那州一家废弃的肯德基门店内,发现一条通向墨西哥的运毒通道。这条长约180米的通道位于该餐厅的地下室内,直通坐落在墨西哥境内的城市圣路易斯里奥科罗拉多。


通道内部

据亚利桑那州当地媒体报道,此前,警方就得到线索并持续监控该餐馆的所有者伊万·洛佩兹(Ivan·Lopez)。一天,当洛佩兹驾驶汽车外出时,警方从他的车内发现两箱市价超过100万美元的麻醉毒品。在后续调查中,调查人员发现毒品包括重约118千克的脱氧麻黄碱(中枢兴奋药品)、6千克可卡因、3千克芬太尼(止痛剂)和21千克海洛因。

同时,在对洛佩兹住所和他所持有的餐馆的搜查中,他们还发现了这条连接墨西哥的秘密贩毒通道。

然而,这并不是被发现的第一条“密道”。2016年,美国加州圣地亚哥也曾发现过一条长约780米的通道,警方认为这条通道也是一条“贩毒通道”,被用以运输可卡因和大麻。

美墨边境的跨国贩毒十分猖獗。今年7月,美国边境巡逻部门在全国范围的边检处就查获了15千克的海洛因、11千克的可卡因、327千克的脱氧麻黄碱和1900千克的大麻。
