SAN DIEGO — U.S. authorities said Thursday they have shut down a major cross-border drug tunnel that traffickers had recently completed and equipped with an electric rail and cart system capable of ferrying tons of drugs from Tijuana to San Diego.

The tunnel was discovered Wednesday evening in an industrial park just west of the Otay Mesa port of entry. Authorities arrested three suspects and seized more than eight tons of marijuana and 325 pounds of cocaine in connection with the investigation, which was handled by the multiagency San Diego Tunnel Task Force.
