Mexican Army officers, along with local police, intercepted a vehicle headed for the U.S. border near Mexicali with over 50 kilograms (110 pounds) of marijuana. The drugs and vehicle were put on display for local media late Saturday evening.

The vehicle was found on a dirt road, after the smugglers had fled the vehicle due to spotting authorities. No suspects were arrested. The marijuana was wrapped in 5 separate 10 kilogram packages. A shotgun was also found in the vehicle.

Networks of spotters are commonly used to alert drug smugglers of authorities in pursuit.
