Ten large packages of marijuana fell from the sky after an airplane dropped the bundles in an open field in San Diego.

The packages, which contained more 260 pounds of pot and are worth an estimated street value of $157,000, were seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

According to federal officials, the plane originally left from Mexico and the packages were found in a drop location Monday near the local airport, which is less than two miles from the U.S.-Mexico border.

NBC4 reports that the federal agents investigated the illegal delivery and took two people into custody including a 32-year-old undocumented immigrant and a 49-year-old legal resident.
