Amazon may be making the headlines for drone deliveries, but four suspects in Georgia are one step ahead of the online shopping giant.

The four were arrested in the city of Morgan last week after a corrections officer at Calhoun State Prison saw a remote-controlled helicopter soaring above the prison yard, NBC News reports. The suspects were allegedly trying to make a delivery to inmates.
