T-shirt gun used to launch contraband into prison

An Oklahoma woman was arrested after authorities say she used a T-shirt "cannon" to launch drugs, cellphones and other contraband over a prison fence.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says the incident prompted a lockdown at the North Fork Correctional Unit in Sayre, a medium-security facility about 120 miles west of Oklahoma City.

The agency says authorities arrested Kerri Jo Hickman after discovering the T-shirt gun and another package in her vehicle.  The container that was launched Sunday contained phones, ear buds, phone chargers, methamphetamine, digital scales, marijuana and tobacco.

The Oklahoma Department of Correction said "Novel approach - bad idea" about her use of the T-shirt gun.

Hickman remained jailed Friday in Beckham County on complaints of introducing contraband into a penal institution, conspiracy and drug trafficking. Jail records don't list an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
