Four people are
behind bars in Calhoun County, accused of using a remote-controlled
helicopter to drop contraband into the prison
Sheriff Josh Hilton says a lieutenant from Calhoun
State Prison noticed this small helicopter flying over the gates.
Deputies searched the area and noticed a suspicious
black Dodge car with Gwinnett County tags on Edison Street in Morgan.
They got permission to search the car and found the model
helicopter and about two pounds of tobacco.
Authorities say the group already made two drops, but prison officials found that contraband.
All four suspects are charged with possession of
prohibited items across the guard line.
Hilton commends Lt. Mock, Deputy
Dunn and the warden for their quick actions.
