BUCKEYE, AZ (KPHO/KTVK/CNN) - Officials found a homemade drone crashed outside a prison in September. 

It was carrying drugs and cell phones in an apparent attempt to get them to inmates. 

This is the first time officers have encountered a drone at an Arizona prison. 

It was sent to a crime lab to be tested for fingerprints and DNA. 

The area where the drone crashed is not accessible to inmates. 

Corrections authorities said they are looking at technology to prevent drones from coming near prisons.
