Drone Tries to Sneak Contraband into Georgia Prison

By Lindsay Perez
NBC News

Armed drones deal death from the skies in remote regions of Pakistan and Yemen, but a group of drone operators has failed in an attempt to use an unmanned craft to drop a deadly substance into a South Georgia prison.

Four people were arrested in Morgan, Ga. last week after a corrections officer at Calhoun State Prison saw a small remote-controlled helicopter hovering over the prison yard, apparently attempting to deliver something to inmates.

According to Calhoun County Sheriff Josh Hilton, after an hour-long search, deputies saw a black Dodge with plates from Gwinnett County on a street in nearby Morgan. Gwinnett County is in suburban Atlanta, more than 200 miles north the prison.

"After we gained consent to search the car, we found the helicopter and I don't know exactly how much it was but probably about one or two pounds of tobacco rolled up," Hilton told WALB-TV, the NBC News affiliate in Albany, Ga.

The six-rotor helicopter was found with a Spektrum DX-6i remote control transmitter and a pair of binoculars, which authorities believe were meant to be used to watch the craft as it flew over the prison to deliver tobacco. Authorities allege that the suspects were planning to call their intended customers to arrange for a drop of the plastic-wrapped bundles.

"Everybody had several cellphones with different contacts,” Hilton told WALB. People try different methods of smuggling, said Hilton, but the mini-chopper was “a surprise. I've never seen a helicopter.”

Calls to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department and the Calhoun State Prison were not immediately returned. The prison is a medium-security facility that houses more than 1,500 inmates.

So they're going to jail over a bit of tobacco?

Those things can fly really fast too.

Maybe a test? Try with something legal before trying with pot or cocaine or blades. I dunno.

Tobacco is illegal in a the vast majority of prisons in the USA. Even one cigarette can go for roughly $25-35.

Yeah, some of them are fucked up. If you've already got life without parole, I wouldn't give a fuck and I know these offenders probably don't, either.
