Surveillance balloons on border deemed a success

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection say three helium-filled surveillance balloons that were deployed late last year along the Texas-Mexico border have been effective in deterring and spotting illegal activity.

The blimp-shaped balloons, also called aerostats, were originally used by the Department of Defense in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The agency says it plans on deploying two more balloons in June.
