December 9 According to a report by Peruvian Public News, on the 8th local time, Peruvian police found a secret tunnel in a house in Lima City. The tunnel is about 200 meters long and equipped with beams to prevent it from collapsing, leading to the restaurant of the nearby Castro prison.
The general commander of the Peruvian National Police reportedly said that preliminary investigation can basically determine that the tunnel is prepared to facilitate the escape of some prisoners.
These prisoners are basically from abroad and engage in illegal transactions such as drug trafficking. The tunnel has been excavated for at least a year and a half, and about half US dollars have been invested in construction. Police speculate that the money for the tunnel came from the profits of drug trafficking.
The tunnel was discovered, according to the report, the current owner of the house, who bought the house four months ago. The previous tenant was a Colombian. Police said that the excavation of the secret tunnel had been carried out for at least a year and a half, and the investigation will continue.
