YUMA, Ariz., The U.S. Border Patrol said Tuesday that Mexican smugglers created a novel system to smuggle drugs into the United States: a cannon.

Authorities said Friday his officers found 33 cans with marijuana in a field near the site where the Colorado River crosses the U.S. border and Mexico. Officials believe the cans were fired about 150 meters (500 feet) from Mexico using a pneumatic gun.

After checking the area, officers found a tank of carbon dioxide. Mexican authorities were notified and reviewed their side of the border.

The 38 kilos (85 pounds) of marijuana in the cans have a black market value estimated at $ 42,000.

Authorities said agents in the Yuma sector adapt their resources as smugglers use new ways to smuggle their illicit merchandise.
