Suspected Mexican drug smugglers who used ramps to try to drive over a US border fence were forced to abandon the plan after their car got stuck, US officials have revealed.

The two suspects were spotted by border agents earlier this week as they tried to move the Jeep sitting atop the 14ft (4.3m) fence on the California border.

They then decided to ditch the vehicle and fled back into Mexico.

The agents believe the suspects tried to smuggle marijuana across the border.

The car was found empty, but it was probably filled with bales of drugs before it got stuck, the US border authorities believe.

A similar daring smuggling scheme was tried on the US-Mexico border last year, but the suspects were captured.

Funnier then my usual fare, but its still a example of idiocy.

Haha, they found no evidence they were smuggling drugs so of course they had to be. (closest thing to a roll eyes smiley I could find.) Definitely they grabbed a bunch of bales of marijuana and ran with them.

actually i find it pretty genius, if they had used a smaller car (finally! a use for the smart car!) they probably would have made it. of course it could have been done a lot less noticeably (and successfully) via the slingshot method... hehe, via
