A drone that was being used to deliver contraband to a rural Virginia jail dropped the package instead at a nearby private school. 

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office said the package, which contained marijuana, tobacco and cell phones, was dropped on school grounds around 5:40 a.m. Monday.

Shortly afterward, the errant drone was retrieved by people in a dark-colored sedan in the Brunswick Academy’s parking lot, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Authorities concluded that the package was intended for the Lawrenceville County Correctional Facility, a one-minute drive from the school. 

Illicit drone deliveries to inmates apparently isn’t unusual in the area. The sheriff’s office said it has received a number of calls this year complaining about the “same criminal activity.”
