Just when ya think you’ve seen and heard it all, along comes someone with an idea that takes your breath away!
A bunch of Mexicans wanted to smuggle pot into the States, so they got a cannon the size of big paint cans and started shooting cans of pot across the Colorado River in Yuma, Arizona.
[It was just after 3:00, so everyone is now calling it "The 3:10 to Yuma!" ] ;>)
The suspicious cans were discovered near the Colorado River in Yuma, Ariz. on Friday.
Border Patrol agents said the discovery was “another unique but unsuccessful attempt” to smuggle drugs into the U.S.
An investigation of the area determined that the cans were fired from about 500 feet away with a pneumatic-powered cannon. A carbon-dioxide tank was found nearby.
Mexican authorities are also looking into the incident.
The marijuana weighed 85 pounds and was valued at $42,500. It will be destroyed, according to a statement from the agency.
Unfortunately, the cops and customs officials arrived before the accomplices on the American side could get away with the loot, so the whole operation figuratively, if not literally, went up in smoke!
