Smugglers never seem to run out of ways to get drugs into the U.S.

The latest: U.S. authorities tipped off Mexicans officials that some smugglers were using a catapult to launch marijuana packages from Mexico into the U.S.

The Associated Press reported that National Guard troops in Arizona spotted the catapult on a remote video surveillance system at the Naco Border Patrol Station Friday night, 80 miles southeast of Tucson. The U.S. Border Patrol then contacted Mexican authorities.

Mexican authorities responded and disrupted the operation, but the smugglers fled, leaving behind about 45 pounds of marijuana.
