Border Patrol Agents Find Drug Catapult Used to 'Launch' Marijuana Into U.S. From Mexico

Newsweek - 02-20


U.S. Border Patrol agents have dismantled a "catapult" they found at the U.S.-Mexico border, which they say was used to "launch drugs" into the U.S. from Mexico. Douglas Station Border Patrol agents were patroling an area east of the Douglas Port of Entry in Arizona on February 10 when they noticed several people on the southern side of the border "quickly retreating from the fence as they approached," said a statement published on the Customs and Border Protection website.
