Yes, we know that most cities are cutting back on their municipal services, so when something was clogging up the local sewer lines in Nogales, Arizona many could assume city workers were at fault – not so.
Nogales public workers discovered waste-covered bales of pot (40 pounds worth) tied to hundred of yards of rope in their sewer line. It is believed this is another example of ‘extreme smuggling’ where desperate measures are taken by Mexican drug traffickers to get their product to the U.S.
Authorities suspect the bales of marijuana were dropped down a man hold on the south side of the border with plans to have someone on the north side pick it up.
This is not the first time Nogales, Arizona officials find surprises in their public works. Last year in February border patrol found 55 pound of marijuana with a scuba tank and masks in the storm drains that run under water between the U.S.-Mexico border.
