Border Patrol agents in Douglas seized two bundles of marijuana that were catapulted across the border from Mexico into the United States on February 10. 

The agents noticed several people on the south side of the fence retreating as they approached. 

When the agents got closer to the fence they noticed the catapult system attached on the south side of the border fence and found the bundles of marijuana. 

U.S. Border Patrol agents dismantled the catapult system which was seized by Mexican authorities.
