According to police, alleged four people named Marc Lee Circle, Angel Omega Thomas, Aaron Clint Foster, and Donovan Aaron Johnson in Calhoun County, Georgia, used a six-propeller equipped mini-copter to drop illegal tobacco into a nearby Calhoun State prison yard. They controlled the drone from some woods nearby. They used binoculars to navigate the drone over the prison’s fences.

But unluckily, a prison guard noticed the copter hovering over the yard. When the guard went to investigate he discovered that the drone had already dropped two packets of rolling tobacco which weighs at least one pound. When police acme, they suspected a car and later found that the drone was inside a car parked a few streets away.

To some people it may seem like a mild crime, but WALB News has reported that delivering contraband to a prison is an extreme crime for which each accused persons could face 20 years in prison. The very interesting thing is still now it is unclear why four people were needed to operate the drone.
