What does a 2,000 ft. tunnel and drug charges have in common?

Several people in Florida are currently in serious trouble with the law. The situation has to do with a palatial residence authorities claim was actually a front for a major drug manufacturing business. The drug supposedly being manufactured was marijuana, which police say was grown in a sophisticated, elaborate underground tunnel. Drug charges pertaining to marijuana, as well as cocaine, have been filed.

The luxurious home in question is in the Bear region. Inside, it boasts a lovely fireplace that authorities say was the secret entrance to the drug-growing tunnel that apparently existed underground. The tunnel is said to have 20-foot ceilings, and it leads beyond the southern border.

It's one thing to come upon a secret tunnel in a person's home. It's quite another to accuse that person of manufacturing illegal drugs in the tunnel. The accusations against those involved don't end there, however. Authorities also claim they are members of the well-known Sinaloa drug cartel from Mexico.

Law enforcement agents say two of the men made several trips together over an extended period of time. They believe the men were transporting drugs. They say the men hid cocaine in sealed oxygen tanks. Drug charges against them and another person have to do with possession, manufacturing and intending to distribute marijuana and cocaine. A Florida criminal defense attorney used to dealing with high-profile situations would be a great asset to someone in such circumstances to outsmart prosecutors, who tend to be quite aggressive in their quests to seek convictions.
