A MAN’S BEEN arrested after a drone laden with drugs was discovered hovering outside a prison in west Melbourne.
According to Victoria State Police, it was seen near the walls of the medium-security Ravenhall facility at around 4.30pm on Sunday.
Officers responded to the scene and found a man and women in a car nearby, “with what was believed to be a drone with four engines and a small quantity of drugs”.
A 28-year-old man from Lalor, a Melbourne suburb, was charged with possessing a drug of dependence and attempting to commit an indictable offence.
He was bailed, and is due to appear again at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court next Monday.
