Gardaí are investigating an incident at Wheatfield Prison yesterday morning in which a helicopter drone full of drugs crashed into the prison.

The incident was first reported by Mick McCaffrey in the Sunday World. The newspaper reports that prisoners ran towards the drone and one of them was seen swallowing some of the packages contained in it.

It is expected the man will be charged with possession of illegal drugs but it is unknown where the drone was being controlled from or who was flying it.
