Police in Australia have arrested a man accused of using a drone to smuggle drugs into a prison. In a statement released Monday, Victoria police said that the unidentified suspect and a woman were found in a car Sunday afternoon with what was believed to be a drone with four engines and a small quantity of drugs. The drone had been hovering in the vicinity of a prison near Melbourne, though its not clear whether any drugs or other contraband were actually delivered. In November, police in Georgia arrested four people on charges of using a UAV to deliver tobacco to a prison yard, and in 2011, Russian police confiscated 700 grams of heroin that were to be delivered to a convict awaiting trial in jail.
