A tiny trapdoor inside the wardrobe leads to a 500 foot tunnel into America, according to Daily Mail. Nine have been arrested for digging the tunnel with the intent of using it to smuggle drugs in and out of the country.

The 66 foot deep tunnel was still under construction when authorities discovered it. Located near the Tijuana checkpoint, it is wired with lights and ventilation. It would have needed to go an additional 1,300 feet in order to cross the border.

When police raided the property, they also seized 44 pounds of marijuana.
