DOUGLAS, Ariz. -

Customs and Border Patrol agents seized 210 pounds of marijuana seen being dropped by an ultra-light aircraft about 20 miles north of Douglas.

CBP's Office of Air and Marine told Douglas agents there was a possible ultralight aircraft in the area.

Ultralight aircraft have one seat and don't require a pilot's license to fly.

Border agents used remote video surveillance cameras to find and follow the aircraft.

According to CBP, the aircraft was seen crossing the border into the US and dropping nine bundles of marijuana weighing 210 pounds.

The aircraft returned to Mexico afterward.
