Prison guards managed to intercept contraband that was smuggled into an inmate's cell using a drone, according to police in Norway.

Nyborg police said that the incident unfolded on Tuesday night, at the State Prison in Nyborg.

Guards saw a drone approaching the prison, and it flew into an open window on the fourth floor. The drone carried two cellphone and saw blades.

When the items were recovered by the prisoner, the drone flew out of the window. Guards immediately rushed to the prisoner's room, and seized the items.

Police were called to the scene, but they were unable to find the drone or the people who operated it. Investigators believe that the inmate planned to use the saw blades to escape from prison.
