Scott Brown, the special agent in charge of the investigation, said Lopez had been seen the same day taking the toolboxes from a building he owned that had been a KFC restaurant, KTVK reported.
Agents used a search warrant and found a tunnel in the kitchen of the former KFC, as well as Lopez’s home.
The tunnel from the restaurant was 8 inches in diameter, 22 feet deep and 590 feet long. It ended at a home in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico, KTVK reported.
At that home, a trap door was found under a bed, and officials believe drugs were smuggled through the tunnel and pulled up at the end with a rope.
The fentanyl could be up to 3 million doses, KYMA reported.
