YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - U.S. Border Patrol agents say they have arrested eight suspected drug smugglers near Sentinel and seized 260 pounds of marijuana loaded into backpacks.     

An agent detected a group of backpackers crossing the desert early Tuesday about five miles south of Interstate 8.     

As authorities closed in, the group dropped their backpacks and ran. But agents apprehended all eight suspected smugglers and a search of the area turned up six make shift burlap-style backpacks containing eight bundles of marijuana.     

Border Patrol officials say the marijuana has an estimated street value of $208,000.

The suspected smugglers and marijuana was transported to the Wellton Border Patrol Station for processing.
