A South Carolina inmate used wire cutters that were apparently dropped from a drone as part of an elaborate escape plan that also included cellphones smuggled into prison, guns and at least $47,000 in cash. Authorities said Friday after his capture that Jimmy Causey’s second escape from prison lasted more than two days before a tip led Texas Rangers to a motel room in Austin where he was found sleeping around 4 a.m. Friday.
