Drone smug­gles phone, blade into prison

Lesotho Times - - Cartoons & Puzzles -

COPEN­HAGEN — Not a cake with a file in it, but maybe the mod­ern equiv­a­lent.

A drone flew a load of il­le­gal items to an in­mate’s cell on the fourth floor of a Dan­ish prison, the Dan­ish Prison Union said on Wed­nes­day, pre­sum­ably to help bust the in­mate out.

The drone car­ried two mo­bile phones, a saw blade and var­i­ous bolts across the Ny­borg Prison’s wall and suc­cess­fully de­liv­ered them to the in­mate through the cell’s win­dow on Tues­day night be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing.

Prison guards im­me­di­ately dis­cov­ered the drop and seized the items, but did not catch the drone nor the per­son con­trol­ling it.

“It’s for­tu­nate it was dis­cov­ered this time, but it might not be like that the next time,” chair­man of the Prison Union, Kim Oster­bye said.
