16 February 2017

Border Patrol agents in the area of the Douglas Port of Entry, southeast of Tucson, on February 10 noticed a few people on the south side of the fence who ran away as the agents approached.

Border Patrol agents seized the marijuana and called Mexican authorities to investigate the contraption.

Border officials in the United States and Mexico worked together recently to dismantle a catapult that had been attached to the border fence in Douglas to launch drugs over the border.

As the officers approached the border fence, a group of men ran off.
