Authorities seized almost 100 pounds of marijuana after seeing it arrive into the United States by air.

Customs and Border Protection said agents using remote video surveillance technology saw an object launched over a border fence Wednesday night in Douglas, about 115 miles southeast of Tucson.

Agents went out to search the area and found a 96-pound marijuana bundle on the ground.

The bundle is worth about $48,000. No arrests have been made.
