First birds and now RC Helicopters used to smuggle phones
So what do brilliant career criminals do when authorities foil a plot to use pigeons to smuggle cell phones into a jail system? That's a no brainer, how about using remote controlled helicopters instead? Well, that's what is happening in Brazil where the police uncovered the plot and put an end to it. Gang members inside the jail routinely try to their hands on mobile phones and continue to do so in any way. It's no small feat trying to maneuver these devices when they are carrying some added weight. You never know what they'll think of next though.
