    Unmanned aerial vehicle and contraband found on the grounds of Oklahoma State Penitentiary.

    A drone carrying drugs, blades and other contraband crashed into an Oklahoma prison yard on Monday, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, NBC News reported. 

    Staff at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester noticed the drone on prison grounds at around 9 a.m., according to a statement from the Oklahoma DOC. The drone had apparently hit a razor wire, which caused it to crash.

    A package attached to the drone with fishing line contained two 12-inch hacksaw blades, 5.3 ounces of marijuana, .8 ounces of methamphetamine and less than a gram of heroin, according to the state.

    The package was also carrying a cellphone, cellphone battery and hands-free device; two packs each of Newport cigarettes and Black & Mild cigars; and two tubes of Super Glue.
