YUMA, Ariz. -- Authorities said they have seized 371 pounds of marijuana while patrolling the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in southern Arizona.

Officials with the U.S. Border Patrol said agents tracked footprints crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, and followed them to a stash of eight marijuana bundles.

The drugs, estimated to be valued at about $185,000, were found late Friday.

No arrests were made.
