Drone with drugs in Mexico – level 2

30-01-2015 15:00

A drone which carried three kilos of meth crashed at a border between Mexico and California. Police arrested nobody, but authorities are trying to find out where the drone came from and who controlled it.

This was not the first time drug dealers used a drone. People recently found drones with cigarettes and marijuana outside prisons.

Mexico’s drug dealers also use tunnels and other aircraft to move the drugs north.

Difficult words: meth (an illegal drug that many people want), authority (a person in a position of power), aircraft (something which can fly).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
