Border Patrol Discovers Tunnel

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Border Patrol has discovered a cross-border tunnel near a San Diego border crossing after surveillance cameras caught suspected migrants crawling out of a hole in the ground.

The agency said Monday that surveillance camera operators spotted several people in Mexico running up to the border fence about one mile west of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry early Sunday.

About a half-hour later, two people were spotted north of the border fence and a third person was seen crawling out of a hole.  The Border Patrol says one person was apprehended and two others re-entered the hole and returned to Mexico.

On Feb. 21, another cross-border tunnel was found east of the Otay Mesa border crossing.
