Mexican officials confiscate drug cannon from smugglers

You've probably heard of one, but you might not have seen one before.

According to a press release from the Mexican government, officials confiscated a vehicle-sized drug cannon which would presumably be used to shoot drugs across the border from the Mexican state of Sonora to Arizona and New Mexico.

Members of Mexico's National Security Commission and Federal Police found the unmarked vehicle with the doors open with an air compressor, gasoline-powered motor, air tank, and three-meter-long metal pipe inside.

In the pictures, you can see a large cut in the back side of the vehicle that would allow the pipe to be positioned to fire a projectile a considerable distance.
