Tunnel closed

Vancouver

Authorities have shut down a 100-yard tunnel used to smuggle drugs across the U.S.-Canada border. Five people were arrested for allegedly transporting more than 200 pounds of marijuana from a Quonset hut south of Vancouver to the living room of a house in Lynden, Wash. Officials began watching both entrances last year after receiving a tip that the tunnel was under construction. Smugglers have built dozens of tunnels under the Mexican border, but this was the first ever discovered in Canada. “The presence of a tunnel on our northern border threatens the security of both countries,” said U.S. Attorney John McKay.
