 Six  people are in custody after investigators discovered a massive drug  tunnel connecting a home in Tijuana to an Otay Mesa warehouse. The  tunnel stretches 1,744 feet long, is 61 feet deep, four feet in diameter, and is located just 300 feet from the border fence.As part of the investigation, 1,762 pounds of cocaine, 164 pounds of  meth and three and a half pounds of heroine were seized, estimated to be  worth $25 million. “The tunnel was found because of good old fashion police work,” said US Attorney, Randy Grossman.Grossman said investigators were doing surveillance of a residence in  National City, which had been used as a stash house in a separate drug  smuggling case back in March.They were watching the home on Thursday when they noticed people  coming and going, which eventually led them to a warehouse in Via De La  Amistad in Otay Mesa.
