McALLEN, Texas (AP) - Border Patrol agents have found a bag full of
assault rifles, other weapons and what they believe to be plastic
explosives hidden near the community of Fronton along the Rio Grande.
The agency says its agents were on patrol in Fronton, a rural area
about 250 miles south of San Antonio Tuesday when they found a black
bag hidden in the brush near the river. Inside there were six assault
rifles, one grenade launcher, one rocket launcher, 20 ammunition
magazines and three packages of what appeared to be the plastic
explosive known as C-4.
Weapons purchased in the U.S. are commonly smuggled to criminal
organizations in Mexico.
