Jorge Morrua, spokesman for the Tijuana police, tells the AP that this isn't the first time authorities have seen drones used for drug smuggling. Last year, a source at the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) told a Mexican news outlet that in 2012, drug-packed drones made at least 150 attempts to cross the border. The technology has been used to transport drugs away from the border, as well. Last year, a drone crashed while attempting to transport marijuana to a South Carolina maximum security prison, and a man in Australia was arrested for making a similar attempt near a Melbourne prison.
