TUCSON, Ariz. -- Border Patrol agents found four all-terrain vehicles and over 1,500 pounds of marijuana abandoned in the desert on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation west of Tucson.

The Border Patrol said the vehicles and 69 bundles of marijuana were found scattered in an area northeast of the Kaka village on Wednesday.

Border Patrol spokeswoman Shevannah Wray said smugglers sometimes abandon their vehicles and loads to avoid being apprehended.
