Authorities in Melbourne, Australia, arrested two individuals found with drugs and a drone outside of a prison. This isn't the first time people have tried to fly contraband over prison walls with a drone. As drug-smuggling innovations go, it ranks somewhere above a catapult but below a submarine for ingenuity.
