Boring....

Well, digging actually.

Three people have been arrested after police raided a sophisticated tunnel intended to smuggle drugs under the U.S.-Canada border between Vancouver and Seattle, investigators said on Thursday.

The smugglers spent more than a year building the 360-foot (110-meter) tunnel that ran from a Quonset hut-style storage building in the rural Aldergrove neighborhood of Langley, British Columbia, to the living room of a home in Lynden, Washington, U.S. and Canadian investigators said.

"It was well built, probably one of the most sophisticated tunnels we've ever seen," said Rod Benson, an agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. "There was a significant drug trafficking organization that was responsible for the construction."

The number of people I've known who have managed to expend vast amounts of energy trying to establish grow ops only to fail because of blight or being too stoned to remember to water the damn things, suggests just how unlikely this endevour is. In fact it looks to me like organized crime rather than a couple of guys with a stoner idea.

And they say Canadians are not entreprenurial...our criminals seem to be.
