Officials at Mansfield Correctional Institution in Ohio say a fight between inmates last Wednesday was caused by a drone dropping more than 7 ounces worth of heroin, marijuana, and tobacco into the prison yard.
The use of drones to smuggle drugs, cell phones, and weapons into correctional facilities has become relatively common in recent years as drones become cheaper and more accessible to the public, experts say.
If “correction” is less important to the prison system than making money with cheap prison labor, one might consider that dropping drugs on prison yards could also be done by those running the prisons as a set up.
That comes to mind because how does the drug delivering drone driver derive any profit from this despicable drop?
