Border guards in Marine City, MI caught a scuba diver trying to smuggle eight-pounds of pot into the US from Canada.

A tipster called in to report a suspicious swimmer coming into the US across the St. Clair River.  Surveillance camera operators honed in on the swimmer and could see he was dragging a dry bag used by scuba divers to bring stuff with them and keep it dry.

Border patrol agents met him when he emerged from the water and found a large watertight container with about 8-pounds of weed inside.

The Canadian man was turned over to the US Drug task force.
