 Baja California .- Elements of the Federal Agency of Investigations (AFI) in Tijuana, Baja California, seized 8 tons of marijuana with a value exceeding $ 10 million in the U.S. market.  The state delegation of the PGR reported that 691 packages were seized containing 718 kilos 300 grams of marijuana and also weapons, in a cellar in the delegation La Mesa.  This morning, the Federal Investigation Agency (AFI), received an anonymous tip, which reported that in a building in the city of Tijuana was used to protect drug packages. Immediately, the AFI-supported military moved to the address provided, where they found and seized more than seven tons of dry grass, presumably marijuana, and crystal, two rifles, a handgun and more. Because of this, an investigation has been initiated to locate whoever is responsible.
