Federal agents make alarming discovery at Mexico border

A drug catapult used to project bundles of marijuana over a fence was found near the Arizona-Mexico border.

According to officials, U.S. Customs and Border Protection were patrolling the area near the Douglas Port of Entry when they noticed people fleeing the fence as they approached.

Once they did approach, they found two bundles of marijuana each weighing 23 pounds.

Also found was the catapult system attached to the Mexico side of the fence, which was then seized and dismantled by the U.S. Border Patrol.

Federal authorities say smugglers are finding more and more unusual ways to get drug bundles across the border from shooting them over with air-powered cannons to placing vehicle ramps next to border fences.
