An inmate in South Carolina used a drone to escape from maximum-security prison
“They have to land for you to get the contraband off of them,” Tamez said. “They can’t drop it like a bomb.”
Prisons have started installing netting to prevent people from throwing contraband over high fences, but that tactic can't stop drones. Texas authorities found Causey in an Austin motel room Friday night, three days after he escaped. Causey, sentenced to life in prison 13 years ago, had escaped from prison once before in 2005. Without drone technology, he and another inmate at the time hid in a garbage truck leaving the prison.
