Drug tunnel; Pot bust; Tucson's first homicidePosted: Updated:
A tunnel discovered just across the border in Nogales, Sonora. So far, "ICE" officials report they don't know where the tunnel comes out on the U.S. side.
Mexican authorities let the feds know about it. Smuggling tunnels have been a common find in nogales in recent years.
And Border Patrol agents ended 2010 with a bang by seizing 5,000 pounds of marijuana hidden among green tomatoes in a tractor trailer.
Two-hundred bales of pot was taken, having a street value of $4.2 million.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 48-year-old Mexican man, was taken into custody and turned over to immigration for further investigation.
And Tucson's first murder of 2011 came overnight on the city's south side. Investigators have identifed the victim as Hector Sotelo junior. The 27-year-old was shot before 11 P.M.
Sunday along a stretch of Kentucky Street, near Irvington and 6th Avenue. No sign yet of a suspect.
