CUSHING, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma prison officials say a drone carrying three cell phones has been confiscated at a private prison after a guard spotted flashing lights approaching the facility.
Oklahoma Department of Corrections Director Joe Allbaugh said in a press release Wednesday a team of prison officers at the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing found the drone after it crash landed on the prison grounds.
A plastic bag containing three cellphones had been affixed to the drone.
Allbaugh says prison officials are investigating the incident. It is the second time a drone with contraband attached to it has been recovered at an Oklahoma prison.
