MARINE CITY, Mich. (Detroit Free Press) -- A Canadian scuba diver on a late night swim got tangled up in a weedy mess: he was busted smuggling 8 pounds of marijuana into the United States in St. Clair River, Border Patrol announced today.
And the pot, which carried a street value of about $40,000, stayed dry.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. Monday when U.S. border agents were notified by the Saint Clair County Central Dispatch about a person swimming across the St. Clair River near Marine City. Dispatch had received a call from a citizen who spotted the swimmer.
Remote video surveillance cameras helped confirm the tip. A camera operator on Selfridge Air National Guard Base relayed to agents on the ground that the swimmer appeared to be towing a "dry bag" used by divers.
When the man in the scuba suit got out of the water near Marine City, Border Patrol agents arrested him. Then, they located a large, watertight PVC cylinder holding more than eight pounds of marijuana tied to a seawall ladder.
The swimmer has not yet been identified.

Police say a family found a pipe stuffed with marijuana inside a kids meal bought for a 4-year-old boy at a Burger King restaurant in southern Michigan.
According to CBS Detroit, the incident happened on Tuesday at the fast food restaurant when a family came for a bite after visiting a nearby water park.
Police reportedly said a man went into Burger King and bought a kids meal for his grandson but before giving it to the child he found the pipe in the box and notified police.
Dundee authorities report that a 23-year-old employee says he put the pipe in the box to hide it while he worked and he didn't mean to give it out.
Police arrested the employee and two other men ages 18 and 20 who do not work at the restaurant but were connected to the incident.
Formal drug possession charges are pending, according to the station.

More than two pounds of marijuana washed ashore at Irvine Cove on Wednesday afternoon, Laguna Beach police said.
The cannabis was loose and in clumps and settled at the north end of the beach between rocks, sand and the tide line, Capt. Jason Kravetz wrote in an email.
The city's Marine Safety officers reported the clumps washing ashore at 1 p.m., Kravetz said.
The marijuana could have come from a smuggling boat that possibly lost its load or sank, and no other physical evidence, such as life jackets or boat pieces, were found, according to police.
Orange County Harbor Patrol and United States Border Patrol officers were still collecting and identifying marijuana Wednesday afternoon.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Police have arrested a local woman for providing false information and discovered a lot more after she was taken into custody.
According to LMPD, Malinda Doner, 26, was a passenger in a car during a routine traffic stop. Officers asked Doner for her information and she gave them the name of Mandy Clips with a false social security number but her correct date of birth.
Police reminded Doner that providing false information to an officer was a crime and she said she was aware. Police discovered that Doner was not Mandy Clips and she was arrested.
While in custody, police performed a body scan of Doner and noticed an irregularity. When asked about it, Doner said she had nothing on her. The scan was performed again and the same anomaly was noticed.
After denying having anything on her again, police performed a strip search. During the strip search, officers removed both a baggie of marijuana and a hand-rolled marijuana blunt from Doner's vagina.
Police reports claim it was Doner's intention to smuggle the drugs into the correction facility and use them in there.
Melinda Doner is facing a misdemeanor for giving an officer a false name and charges including possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence and promoting contraband.

Jim Berns staged the stunt to publicize his intent to 're-legalize marijuana.'
A Cincinnati mayoral candidate who promised to give away marijuana plants left customers dissatisfied when they received tomato plants instead of pot.
Libertarian Jim Berns tried to woo voters with the ploy Wednesday, part of his platform calling for the legalization of the drug in Ohio.
Around 30 supporters, mainly college aged, showed up to support the candidate and dozens of people reportedly lined up to receive their plant at a city park.
Wearing an American Flag tie, the political hopeful was photographed handing out the small shrub and distributing fliers about his crusade to re-legalize the drug.
"We support people deciding themselves to smoke marijuana," the 65-year-old told the Daily News.
