Drone Suspected Of Bringing Contraband To Prison

(Columbia, SC)  --  Criminals appear to be getting more high-tech.  State officials say they're now looking for whoever tried to deliver contraband into the Lee Correctional Institution by using a drone.  The device had crash-landed outside of the maximum-security prison earlier this year and was found in the bushes.  It was found with cellphones, tobacco products, and marijuana.  Investigators are calling this a first-of-its-kind incident.  One man has been arrested, and they're searching for a second suspect.
