Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona arrested a man and seized 10 bundles of marijuana after a cross-border zip line smuggling attempt.
Agents using surveillance technology detected a person a few feet from the international border attempting to conceal himself in a vacant lot Wednesday morning in Douglas.
Other agents patrolling the area responded and found the marijuana bundles and an 18-year-old Douglas man.

They also discovered a zip line affixed to a tall building across the Mexico border in Agua Prieta, Sonora.
Agents transported the bundles to the Douglas Station for processing.
Authorities say the marijuana had a combined weight of more than 240 pounds and an estimated value of more than $120,000.
They say the unidentified suspect is being held on federal smuggling charges.
From drug tunnels to drug-slinging catapults, smuggling attempts can reach bizarre heights.
In August, a man was accused of using a drone to smuggling meth over the U.S.-Mexico border.
In May, Agents working an immigration checkpoint in southern Arizona stopped a hearse and found marijuana inside a mahogany coffin.
In February, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said they seized a catapult system that was used to launch marijuana from Mexico into the U.S.
