Prison Drone Wars

Drones, known as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), range from deadly weapons, spy craft, to being used for deliveries, hobbyists, or photography. I thought it was interesting that, apparently, drones have been utilized by prisoners to sneak in contraband, such as cellphones, drugs, food, or weapons. These prisoners are usually those involved with drug cartels.

This problem is quite widespread, affecting the US, Canada, Central and South America. Obviously, the drones are effective for the flow of goods, especially cellphones, whose usage further allows prisoners to operate beyond their confines. Some drones even carried out attacks, dropping explosives. There’s an idea for another Narcos series on Netflix.
