Posted: Updated:

YUMA, Ariz. U.S. Border Patrol agents found 156 pounds of marijuana in a canal near the U.S.-Mexico border.

It happened shortly after 1:00 am yesterday.

Agents found $78,000 worth of marijuana in the Salinity Canal, near County 15th Street. 

Agents believe this was part of a failed drug smuggling attempt.

They say they found evidence that several suspects came into the United States illegally, near that same area, then headed back to Mexico.

The drugs are now being processed by the Yuma County Narcotics Task Force.
