Mexican soldiers raided an Agua Prieta home and found stolen vehicles, over a ton of marijuana, a portable catapult fixed to a truck, and another inside the house.

Following an anonymous tip, the soldiers raided an Agua Prieta home and seized 171 blocks of marijuana, a grey 1987 Honda accord, and a Chevrolet Silverado truck with a catapult in its flat bed.

A second catapult was found inside the house, but was empty at the time of the raid. No arrests were made.

This is the second time Mexican authorities have found catapults in the area.

Last January another catapult used to smuggle drugs was found near the border town of Douglas, AZ.
