YUMA - The U.S. Border Patrol says they've seized 940 pounds of marijuana after an agent monitoring a camera near Yuma spotted men emerging from a drainage pipe.

The agent called in a helicopter and other agents, who tracked footprints from the Colorado River to the pipe. They found 26 bundles of pot inside the pipe late Wednesday.

The smugglers apparently escaped back to Mexico.
