Brazilian Criminals Attempt To Use RC Helicopter For Phone Delivery

Posted May 27, 2009

The police in Brazil has prevented criminals from getting access to mobile phones by taking down RC helicopters delivering them.

Four people were arrested in connection with the RC helicopter flying around the high-security prison.  There was a car located near the prison.  In the same state in Brazil, criminals even used pigeons to have mobile phones delivered.

The car that had the helicopter remote control was found as part of a routine check.  As part of the check, the RC was discovered along with 9 mobile phones in a napkin.  There was another 5 phones found in the car.

The youngest one involved in the RC helicopter crime was 17 and was paid $5,000.  If the helicopter landed in the jail, that boy would be paid an additional $5,000.
