In Mexico, soldiers have seized two catapults. These catapults were being used by drug smugglers as a unique way of getting marijuana to the United States. The drug smugglers were flinging packages of marijuana across the border. On Monday, due to an anonymous tip, agents went to a house in the border cit of Agua Preita. There they found in the bed of a pickup truck a catapult. Another one was found inside the house.
The soldiers also seized one point four tons of marijuana during the raid. The city is across the border from Douglas, Arizona. In January Mexican troops seized two other catapults in the same area.
