Mexican Police Seize Weapons, Meth and 9 Tons of Pot

MEXICO CITY (March 16, 2013)--Mexican federal police have seized more than nine tons of marijuana, 370 pounds of crystal meth and a large cache of weapons in a northern border city caught in a bloody turf war between two drug cartels.

A statement says a citizen's complaint led officers to two underground warehouses near a highway that links Monterrey with Reynosa, a city across the border from McAllen.

Police found five tons of marijuana and the crystal meth in one warehouse and 20 automatic rifles, thousands of bullets, 10 bulletproof vests, 20 uniforms, radios and tire spikes in the other.

Authorities didn't say where the other four tons of marijuana was found or what drug cartel owned the weapons and drugs.
