A spokesman for the Tijuana police, Jorge Morrua, said they police were alerted when a drone fell on Tuesday night near the San Ysidro border crossing.

Six packets of the drug, weighing more than six pounds, were taped to the six-propeller remote-controlled aircraft. Morrua said authorities are investigating where the flight originated and who was controlling it. He said it was not the first time they had seen drones used for smuggling drugs across the border.

Other innovative methods of transporting drugs across the border include tunnels and catapults.
