Smuggling Drugs with a Remote-control Helicopter

Was it a case of drug smuggling or not? First, closed circuit cameras picked up the image of a tiny helicopter flying into the compound at Elmley Prison in Sheerness, Kent, England. The next night, guards saw the flying object.
However, staff could not find any trace of either the helicopter or the package which it appeared to be carrying underneath it when they searched the Category C jail.

'Using a mini-helicopter to get contraband into jails is unprecedented. When officers spotted it they nearly fell off their chairs', a prison source told the Sun.

'It could have been drugs or a mobile phone in the package. It is possible it was a dummy run.'

Maybe the helicopter flew out as well. Link -via Unique Daily

This article doesn't present a group of people who seem terribly alarmed about this fact. Like "Oh well, another smuggling."

@jodie - what if it had been a gun the copter was smuggling?

Not a bad way to deliver drugs, just about any remote heli would work. You wouldnt even need a very sophisticated way to attach them, a piece of duct tape would work just fine. To carry a cell phone however, you would need a pretty hardy mini heli.

Tennis ball idea works too. I know Ive launched some pretty far using a potato gun when I was a kid.
