Marijuana dropped from ultralight, seized in Yuma

YUMA, Ariz. — Federal authorities say they’ve seized more than 160 pounds
of marijuana that had been dropped from an ultralight plane in southwestern
Arizona.

U.S. Border Patrol agents say the aircraft was seen crossing the Colorado River
west of Yuma on Wednesday.

Agents tracked the ultralight as it flew into Arizona and then turned around
and crossed back into Mexico.

They searched the area and reported finding several bundles of marijuana tied
to a metal frame in a field.

The 162 pounds of marijuana was turned over to the Drug Enforcement
Administration officials.
