Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents from the Wellton Station arrested
eight suspected drug smugglers and seized about 355 pounds of
marijuana Monday. Border Patrol officials estimated the pot was worth
about $177,500.

The agents were patrolling south of the Interstate 8 Palomas exit
when they discovered footprints and tracked them for about a half
mile until they came upon a group of backpackers hiding in heavy brush.

The group, six Mexican citizens and two Honduran citizens, had

they walked.

The alleged smugglers and the marijuana were turned over to the
