Mexican man attempts to float across the border on 50-pound bag of marijuana

Sep 26, 2013

The U.S. Border Patrol busted what may have been the most innovative suspect in illegally immigrating into the states of all time. On September 19, a 55-year-old Mexican man was arrested by USBP agents in the Pacific Ocean — just 600 yards from the U.S./Mexico border — and was found using a duffle bag full of ganja as a flotation device.

According to officials, the swimmer was in possession of seven bundles of marijuana, weighing a total of 50 pounds with a street value of more than $23,000.

The suspect is currently in custody.
