Hi-Tech Prison Break : U.S Prisoner Escapes From Maximum Security Prison Using A Drone


Technology is something that can be used for both good and evil. I've seen High Tech robberies, High Tech Cheating, Now It's High Tech Prison Break.

An inmate in A South Carolina jail used wire cutters and other "tools" like mobile phones which were dropped from a drone to coordinate his escape from a maximum-security prison.

Jimmy Causey.

According to ArsTechnica, Jimmy Causey was arrested on  Friday in Austin, Texas, about 1,200 miles away from the Lieber Correctional Institution outside Charleston, authorities said.

The inmate who is serving a life sentence for kidnapping his attorney, escaped around 8pm on the 4th of July. Nobody knew he had escaped till the afternoon of the next day. He cut through 4 fences to escape.

"We 100 percent know a cellphone was used or multiple cellphones were used while he was incarcerated, and we believe a drone was used to fly in the tools that allowed him to escape,"

-Bryan Stirling, Director, South Carolina Department of Corrections.

This is not the first time drones were deployed in a bid to assist escapes or to drop drugs.  

South Carolina officials were still investigating a previous incident, which included Causey placing a dummy in his bed to trick prison guards. He was arrested around 3am in a motel, where he was sleeping after the authorities received a tip.

At the time of his arrest, he had four mobile phones, $47,654 in cash, a pistol, and a shotgun.

This is the second time Causey escaped. In 2005, he escaped by hiding in a trash car with another inmate. He was arrested 3 days later.
