Giant Marijuana Bundle Launched over Mexico Border

On August 27, 2017, Border Patrol agents in Arizona seized an almost 100-pound bundle of marijuana they saw fly over the border fence. A surveillance video caught the bundle in the air over the fence from Mexico to the United States. Border Patrol agents found the bundle wrapped in plastic and believe it has a total worth of about $48,000.

The launching of massive bundles of pot over the border fence has posed a great danger to nearby businesses and residents because of their weight, according to spokeswoman Stephanie Dixon. Border Patrol agents are still not sure of what drug smugglers used to launch the particular package over the fence, but are aware that, in the past, they have used air cannons and home-made catapults. The event took place exactly one day after President Donald Trump visited Arizona and reestablished his interest in building a wall to stop the flow of drugs from Mexico. With occurrences such as this, many of Trump’s critics state that his wall will do little to nothing to stop smugglers. The area where the marijuana landed is near some businesses, but the Border Patrol hasn’t reported any damage from Wednesday’s incident nor have agents made any arrests.

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."


From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."


From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."


From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
