Smugglers use cannon to shoot drugs into US
Smugglers use cannon to shoot drugs into US, Border Patrol reports
Published December 11, 2012
YUMA, Arizona – U.S. Border Patrol agents say smugglers have come up with yet another creative way to get drugs in the country -- a cannon.
Authorities say 33 cans of marijuana were spotted Friday in a field near where the Colorado River crosses the U.S.-Mexico border. They believe the cans were launched about 500 feet (152 meters) into the U.S. using a pneumatic-powered cannon.
After searching the area, agents recovered a carbon dioxide tank.
Mexican authorities were also notified and searched their side of the border.
The 85 pounds (38.5 kilograms) of marijuana found in the cans had an estimated value of $42,500.
Authorities say Border Patrol agents in the Yuma sector near the Arizona-California border are adapting and shifting resources as smugglers come up with new ways of transporting their contraband.
