US Border Patrol agents and members of the National Guard joined forces with Mexican authorities in the seizure. National Guard troops assigned to the area caught the catapult in action on video surveillance and noticed several people just south of the international boundary fence preparing a catapult.

Border Patrol agents contacted Mexican authorities, who responded to the area and disrupted the catapult operation. Hidden cameras caught several people fleeing the area.
