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.
