Columbia: Officials are looking for a person they say helped try to use a drone to sneak phones, marijuana and other contraband into a maximum-security prison.

Officials found a crashed drone in bushes outside Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, South Carolina. At the site, Corrections Department spokeswoman Stephanie Givens says officers on April 21 also found the phones, marijuana and tobacco products.

One man has been arrested and charged with trying to give contraband materials to inmates, and authorities are looking for a second suspect.

Givens says this is the first time officials know of a drone being used to smuggle banned items into a South Carolina prison.
