Drugs fall from sky, crash into carport in Ariz.

The roof of a carport in Arizona got a huge hole in it from drugs falling from the sky.

The family in Nogales said they heard a loud noise and thought it was thunder. The next morning, they found a 28-pound bundle of marijuana wrapped in brown and black tape. It had landed in an empty dog crate.

Police said the package was probably dropped by a small aircraft. Smugglers frequently use small aircrafts -- and even catapults -- to get drugs across the border from Mexico.

The house where the drugs crashed is about 1,000 feet from Mexico, according to CNN.
