Drone Carrying Drugs, Contraband Crashes at Oklahoma Prison

McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Prison officials at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary are investigating after a drone carrying drugs, hacksaw blades and a cellphone was found crashed on the prison grounds.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections Director Robert Patton says staff at the prison discovered the drone Monday morning after it apparently crashed after clipping some razor wire.

A package connected to the drone with fishing wire contained 5 ounces of marijuana, two hacksaw blades, a cellphone and accessories, cigarettes, cigars, glue, methamphetamines and heroin.

Patton says the agency has notified officials at other prisons to be on the lookout for similar efforts to smuggle contraband.

The Oklahoma State Penitentiary at McAlester houses some of the state’s most violent and dangerous offenders, including Oklahoma’s death row.
