Drone Carrying Illegal Stuff to Prison Inmates Crashes Just Outside Jail

August 5, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Well, if you thought prisoners to be one section lacking technological advancements, you could be proved wrong.

Prisoners of South Carolina have taken the upper hand in delivering illicit items by means of drones, though all went in vain.

Officials have been quoted as saying that a crashed drone found near the fence of the Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville was aimed at delivering mobiles and drugs to the prisoners.

The drone that wrecked back in April was under scrutiny and officials have presented in court the culprit Brenton Lee Doyle, who was arrested on charges of carrying out the action.

With searches for a second suspect via surveillance video footages are ongoing, a spokesperson has been quoted as admitting to find out newer ways to tackle the technological advancements made use in carrying out illegal tasks. Doyle, who was arrested for possession of illegal drugs, denied any involvement with the drone.

It’s not the first time the high security prison at South Carolina has witnessed mobile phones being exchanged between prisoners. The modus operandi was that the phones were hurled above the prison walls.

Exchange of illicit stuff by means of drones has been carried out before too when a set of four members were arrested at the state prison in Georgia.
