Police suspect it is an attempt to smuggle drugs into the prison.

No other details have been publicized at this moment.

It’s one of a few unique attempts as of late. Another recent attempt to drop drugs into a B.C. prison was done via remote-controlled drone.

In other unique stories, this man tried to steal a bike from an RCMP parking lot. Meanwhile, a teen recently got a cake for his birthday while in a Coquitlam jail.
