#TucsonSector Border Patrol agents with the cooperation of Mexican Federal Police located an illicit cross-border tunnel on the west side of Nogales on Wednesday. This is the 125th tunnel discovered by Border Patrol since 1990.

Authorities found the incomplete tunnel, over three-feet-wide and four-feet-tall, running underneath the Nogales streets extending 20 feet into the U.S. on Wednesday, a CBP news release said.

The tunnel was located about 10 feet underground concealed in the floor of an existing drainage system with dirt and a Styrofoam, concrete mixture.
