Pot Catapult Launches Drugs Over U.S. Border





Courtesy: U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Drugs via Catapult? The idea of using a medieval device to overcome the high-tech fence between the United States and Mexico is too improbable for even a most outlandish Hollywood thriller.
Yet that is exactly what the National Guard discovered in Arizona while operating a remote video surveillance system last Friday evening.
The black and white video captured Drug Smugglers loading a medieval-looking contraption and launching packages over the border fence.
KVOA in Tucson reported that Border Patrol agents at the Naco border station, about 80 miles southeast of Tucson, working with the National Guard, contacted Mexican authorities, who went to the location and disrupted the catapult operation.
The 3 yard tall mobile catapult was just 20 miles from the U.S. border. Smugglers would move it on a flatbed towed by a sport utility vehicle, according to a Mexican army officer with the 45th military zone in the border state of Sonora.
The catapult was capable of launching 4.4 pounds of marijuana at a time, the officer said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity for security reasons.
Soldiers seized 35 pounds of marijuana, the vehicle and the catapult device, the officer said. The smugglers left the area before they could be captured.

thats pretty genious of an idea, fuck building a tunnel can take months, you could weld a catapult up in a day and use a new one every night

The best thing we could have seen was if a helicopter rose up from out of sight and lit their asses up with rockets. Now that would be fun to watch.

Seems to me if they built one of those or several of those air launchers like they launch t-shirts at events and modified them to take more weight they could get more stuff across and be more mobile. That catapult is too big. You never know, the smugglers are pretty smart and that thing might just be a decoy, and they are smuggling the drugs someplace else while the border patrol is patting itself on the back for finding it, it isn't very stealthy. 35 pounds of pot is not very much compared to the amount they usually find. Think about it for a minute.
