Federal authorities on Wednesday discovered a 600-yard long tunnel with lighting and ventilation that went from Tijuana to California that was used to smuggle marijuana, the New York Times reported.

DEA and ICE officials said they found about 30 tons of marijuana in the Otay Mesa section of San Diego,the Times reported. Most of the marijuana was in the tunnel.

Authorities said the tunnel wasn’t large enough to stand up in, and that smugglers likely crawled through it, the Times reported, adding that warehouses on both sides were used to store drugs.

The Times reported that authorities have found more than 75 tunnels along the border in the last four years.
