June 28th 2012   ·   0 Comments

An ultra-light aircraft dropped 132 pounds of marijuana into a Calexico resident’s backyard Saturday night, according to a U.S. Border Patrol press release.

It happened around 11:14 p.m. after Border Patrol agents assigned to the Calexico station and using a mobile surveillance system detected a possible ultra-light aircraft coming north from Mexico near the Calexico Downtown Port of Entry.

It was observed traveling south back to Mexico.

Agents were notified and conducted a ground search for a possible drug drop-off spot, later finding six duct-tape wrapped bundles in a Calexico resident’s backyard.

The marijuana is estimated to have a street value of $106,000, according to the release, and was seized and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The U.S. Border Patrol continues to investigate the incident with strategic partners to locate the ultra-light aircraft.
