Can You Dig it?

This guy probably can.
Antonio Morales Barrios, 41, received two and a half years for his role – presumably as a watchdog – supervising a house that hid a 120-mile border-crossing underground tunnel. This is just 1 of 60 authorities have found since the post-9/11 heightening of border patrols.
Oh, and more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana was found, so he probably wasn’t acting alone, but no one else was named in the charges. These sort of operations are high risk, high reward and generally don’t stay operational for more than three months. This particular tunnel lasted two months before the Calexico authorities discovered it.
