Undated images show a homemade bazooka used to blast packets of drugs from Mexico to Douglas, Arizona.

Drug smugglers are getting more creative and using homemade bazookas to blast packets of narcotics onto American soil.

Federal police officers in Mexico found a van fitted with an air compressor and a 10-foot metal tube.

The van has a cut in the roof toward the back to allow the tube to be used to launch contraband.

The van was found abandoned across the border from Douglas, Arizona.
