RATCHABURI - A drone equipped with a video camera and two mobile phones were intercepted by guards at Khao Bin prison, widely known to have the best security protection system of all prisons in Thailand. 

Danai Supsin, director of the Prisoner Counsel and Development Division, said on Tuesday that prison staff earlier received a tip-off about people trying to smuggle prohibited items into Khao Bin prison.

During last night's surveillance, the guards found the video camera-equipped drone on a tree branch inside the prison compound. Two Nokia cell phones, four SIM cards, two Bluetooth devices, an integrated circuit and a pair of earphones were strapped to the unmanned aerial vehicle.
