Drug can­non seized in Mex­ico

The Star Malaysia - - World -

Mex­i­can au­thor­i­ties have seized a mod­i­fied van in the bor­der state of Sonora car­ry­ing a home­made can­non that had the ca­pa­bil­ity to launch bun­dles of drugs over the US-Mex­ico bor­der. Au­thor­i­ties from Mex­ico’s armed forces and the At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice say 203 pack­ages of mar­i­juana weigh­ing more than 825kg and nearly 2,000 bul­lets of vary­ing cal­i­bre were also taken dur­ing the op­er­a­tion. Pho­to­graphs pro­vided by of­fi­cials show a con­vert­ible white van near the town of Agua Pri­eta bear­ing a large steel pipe and air com­pres­sor that was ca­pa­ble of launch­ing the drug bun­dles.
