Police in the Mexican border city of Mexicali say they have recovered a
powerful improvised cannon used to hurl packets of marijuana across a border
fence into California.

A spokesman said the device was made up of a plastic pipe and a crude metal
tank that used compressed air from the engine of an old car.


The apparatus fired cylinders packed with drugs that weighed as much as
30lbs, police said.


It was confiscated last week after US officers told Mexican police that they
had been confiscating a large number of drug packages that appeared to have been
fired over the border.


Mexican police on the border have recovered a series of similar devices in
recent years.
