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.
