Pot shots? Catapult used to launch marijuana found near US-Mexico border

Published: Updated:

United States Border Patrol agents have dismantled a “catapult system” reportedly used to launch at least 47 pounds of marijuana over a border fence from Mexico into Arizona.

The catapult was discovered last week on the Mexico side of the border near the Douglas Port of Entry in Tucson, Arizona, after US Border Patrol “agents noticed several people on the south side quickly retreating from the fence as they approached,” a statement on the US Customs and Border Protection website read.

“When agents arrived at the fence they found a catapult system attached to the south side of the border fence. They searched the area and located two bundles of marijuana,” the statement added.
