Drug traffickers lose 260 pounds of marijuana in a failed air drop over San Diego, as pot falls from plane near Mexico border. The result of the failed air drop also leads to two arrests of undocumented immigrants.
Officials say an ultra-light aircraft coming from Mexico dropped the massive payload — which was tied to a large metal cage used to hold cargo — in a field near Brown Field Airport. The Office of Air and Marine tracked the plane as it crossed the border.
According to Raw Story, the plane crossed at 4:15 a.m. and dropped the ten heavy bundles before escaping back across the border.
Two suspects arrested at the drop zone were a 49-year-old, and a 32-year-old undocumented immigrant, according to CBS LA. The street value of the ganja was $157,000.
I don’t think they have gotten the medical marijuana memo. Also, I am sure those two guys will be back shortly after being deported, I mean there is not much that is stopping them.
