Border Agents in Arizona made a shocking discovery while on patrol. They located a sling shot that is designed to launch two 47 pound bundles of marijuana over a border fence from Mexico and into the United States.
The device was made of square tubing and a heavy spring welded together with ropes.

The catapult was found on February 10 during a CBP patrol when people were located around the wall. As CBP approached the people fled and as the area was searched and drugs were located. The CBP officials notified Mexican authorities who confiscated the device and CBP agents took it apart today.
In January, officers in Pharr, Texas, seized $789,467 worth of marijuana in a shipment of key limes. They used a K-9 narcotics team and thermal imaging to find the 3,947 pounds of weed that had been stuffed into more than 34,000 fake limes.
The area where the catapult was found has been a hotbed for smuggling. Last year at the same border crossing 2,493 pounds of marijuana were seized in the shape of carrots. The bust was estimated to be worth $5000,000.
This is just another example of the lawlessness that was allowed by the Obama Administration. Now that President Trump has begun to once again follow the law CBP are now allowed to do their jobs.
