Federal agents have seized over nine tonnes of marijuana found in a warehouse in Tijuana.

After state police officers reported the warehouse had been guarded since Monday federal prosecutors obtained a search warrant for the property.

When police entered the warehouse, they found 757 packages containing marijuana, totaling nine tonnes of the narcotic.

It was the third marijuana seizure in the state this week.
