LAREDO, Texas – The Laredo Border Patrol sector has just announced that two agents have shot down a drone that was carrying drugs.
A spokesperson for the Border Patrol said that agents Maximiliano De La Noche and Wyatt Munsi shot the drone down as it crossed into Laredo, Texas from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
Agent De La Noche told a reporter with The Laredo Timely Times, that he used a military-issued rocket launcher, and agent Munsi used one of the most powerful shotguns in the entire world.
Both agents hit the drone, and, after inspecting it, noted that the drone was carrying 89 pounds of refined Popocatepetl Snow, which is one of the most popular and expensive cocaines on the market.
