Federal authorities have discovered a sophisticated drug-smuggling tunnel that went from a home in Mexico to an abandoned fast-food restaurant in Arizona. The Homeland Security Investigations division of the Department of Homeland Security says it got word in April that there was a tunnel leading to an old Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that's not in operation in San Luis, Arizona, just about 180 meters north of the border.Authorities don't know how long the tunnel had been used, but Lopez only bought the property in April.HSI has a tunnel task force and the Customs and Border Protection agency has a tunnel detection and technology program, all to tackle the nearly 200 cross-border tunnels that have been discovered since 1990 .
