Four people have been arrested in Georgia for attempting to use a drone to drop illegal tobacco into a prison yard, controlling the six-propeller mini-copter from some woods nearby. They had binoculars and stuff evidently so they could watch it, Sheriff Josh Hilton told WALB News. A prison guard noticed the copter hovering over the yard and went to investigate, discovering the drone inside a car parked a few streets away and at least a pound of rolled tobacco. It sounds like a mild crime, but delivering contraband to a prison is a felony punishable by 20 years in prison, according to WALB News.
