Video: Drug smugglers use catapult to fling pot

Surveillance video shows drug smugglers using an old invention as a new way to move marijuana across the border from Mexico to Arizona.
National Guard troops operating a remote surveillance system at the Naco Border Patrol Station say they observed several people preparing a catapult and launching packages over the fence late last week.
A Mexican army officer says the 3-yard (3-meter) tall catapult was found about 20 yards (20 meters) from the U.S. border on a flatbed towed by a sports utility vehicle.
The officer says the catapult was capable of launching 4.4 pounds (2 kilograms) of marijuana at a time. He says soldiers seized 35 pounds of pot, the vehicle and the catapult.
The smugglers left before they could be captured.
