A drone carrying marijuana, tobacco and cell phones made a crash landing in Washington State Prison in Georgia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
A spokeswoman from the Department of Corrections told local media that the contraband-carrying device crashed around 10:45 p.m. on Monday.
The spokeswoman could not confirm the quantity of smuggled materials, but said nobody inside the medium-security prison was immediately linked to the crash.
Drones have become an increasingly popular way for inmates to try to smuggle illicit goods into prisons.
A convict recently escaped a maximum security prison in South Carolina with the help of wire cutters flown in by a drone, according to authorities. The elaborate scheme ended days later when the felon was captured in Texas.
Another drone-related incident occurred in Ohio in 2015, when a drone dropped contraband into an Ohio prison, sparking a fight in the prison’s recreation yard.
