Drones delivering contraband to prisons

Le Chef on BB Forum from The Drive

This is "Off Topic" so you purists may want to skip...below first article is one about drones going into a Detroit prison.  Drone have been used to deliver contraband to U.S. prisons


In British Columbia’s Matsqui district officials at a federal prison successfully intercepted a package being illegally piloted into the correctional facility. We’ve seen this same scenario several times such as when cell phones and porn were being smuggled into federal prisons via drone or an unmanned aerial vehicle carrying contraband crashing into the prison yard. The idea of a drone as a tool to effectively bypass official prison procedures is nothing new, but the monetary value in this particular case is certainly impressive. According to Huffington Post, however, the foiled delivery attempt in Matsqui carried a package with an estimated $26,500 value comprised of drugs and tobacco.
