DRONE AIDED INMATE’S ESCAPE

posted by Mark Robertson - 

When it came time for lights out at Lieber Correctional Institution on the evening of July Fourth, officers at the maximum-security South Carolina prison thought they had all 1,300 inmates accounted for. But convicted kidnapper Jimmy Causey wasn’t in his bunk — a homemade dummy was stuffed under the covers in his place. By the time prison officials realized Causey was missing, he’d already been gone for nearly a full day. Causey was able to escape with the help of wire cutters that authorities believe were flown in by a drone. Causey made it out of his cell, exited his prison dorm and cut through a series of metal fences. By the time officials confirmed he was gone, Causey had an 18-hour head start on law enforcement. He made it 1,200 miles to Austin, Texas, where he was captured.
