An international sewer line in Nogales has been cleared of packages of drugs that caused a backup of waste. On Wednesday evening, authorities said the investigation was ongoing and no arrests had been made.

Authorities found about 50 to 60 pounds of marijuana in the sewer line. The bundles of drugs caused waste to spill into a home where an illegal underground tunnel was found leading to the pipe.

“There was raw sewage coming out of every nook and cranny of that house,” said Nogales City Manager Shane Dille.

Dille said authorities believe the house was being used to receive drugs coming through the sewer from Mexico. He said service was not interrupted at any other properties in the area, with the exception of one business.

Dille said the owner of the house lives out of state and has been contacted, but it’s unknown at this time if someone was renting the house…

He said the city hoped to have the sewer line repaired by Wednesday evening.

    Two Arizona teenagers face smuggling charges after they were caught with marijuana that had been launched over the U.S.-Mexico border in an unusual smuggling attempt.
    The two teens were found with a bundle of marijuana that U.S. Border Patrol officials say was fired from an air cannon over the Mexico border into Naco Arizona on Dec. 7.
    According to the agency, agents found the teens with 34 pounds of marijuana that had been molded into a cylinder shape that could fit into a 55 gallon drum.
