Police investigating suspicious east Jerusalem tunnel adjacent to Rockefeller Museum

Jerusalem Police have launched an investigation into a suspicious 30-meter vertical tunnel dug by possible con men from an elderly Palestinian woman’s east Jerusalem property toward the nearby Rockefeller Archaeological Museum.  

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Tuesday that a concerned neighbor of the woman contacted authorities on Monday to report that unidentified men had been digging a deep hole for several weeks in the woman’s garden, located outside the Old City’s walls.

“The elderly lady said the suspects told her that they were working on behalf of the municipality and electric company to fix pipes and other things,” said Rosenfeld. “Every time she asked them what they were doing, they replied ‘fixing, fixing, fixing.’”
