(WBRE/WYOU-TV)    Frackville State Police and the Department of Corrections are confirming a drone sighting at SCI Frackville Monday morning.

 According to the DOC, SCI Frackville, along with other state prisons, have encountered drone sightings within the past few months.

 Pennsylvania State Police are notified about each sighting. It also should be noted that every state prison now has drone detection equipment which was installed following the system-wide lockdown August September 2018, in response to a significant inmate and employee exposures to drugs/substances that sickened them.

 The DOC noted it does not provide any details about how the drone detection equipment works.
