Los Pollos Hermanos in real life.
In the classic television series Breaking Bad, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman worked for a drug dealer named Gus Fring. Fring owned a chicken based fast food restaurant called Los Pollos Hermanos, which he used as a front for his drug money. While Walter and Jesse slaved away underground in a lab not far away, Fring enjoyed the profits of his business in the chicken spot. Some crafty drug dealers must have gotten an idea about underground labs and chicken shops from Breaking Bad, because they found a way to burrow from Mexico to a KFC in Arizona.
As reported by KSWT, on Monday, August 13, San Luis Police pulled over Ivan Lopez. Lopez, who is a resident of Yuma Arizona, was pulled out of his vehicle after drug dogs reacted to his transportation. Upon a search, police found 168 kilograms of narcotics in two toolboxes. Just to be clear, rappers brag about having a couple of kilos. Jay-Z once bragged about losing and recovering just under 100 kilos. Lopez had 168 in his vehicle.
According to the report, Lopez had 118 kilograms of methamphetamine, six grams of cocaine, three kilograms of fentanyl, 13 kilograms of white heroin, and six kilograms of brown heroin inside the toolboxes. Authorities claim that the fentanyl alone could provide three million doses. Once it was discovered that Lopez was seen removing the boxes from inside an old KFC, authorities went to investigate.
After another search of the building, which Lopez owns, authorities found a small entrance to a tunnel. The entrance was only eight inches in diameter, but it declined down 22 feet and extended 590 feet underneath the old KFC to the nearby Mexican border. Authorities believe the drugs were lifted up by rope, and the tunnel ended at a house in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico. A trap door underneath a bed at the Mexican residence was the starting point for the drug route. This is why walls won't work.
