A white cat with a saw and mobile phone taped to its body was “detained” as it attempted to enter a prison gate in the city of Arapiraca in northeast Brazil, Reuters reported on Saturday, Jan. 5.
Prison guards were surprised to see a white cat crossing the main gate of the prison, which houses 263 prisoners. The prison guards noticed that the cat’s body was wrapped with tape. Upon closer inspection, the guards found that the cat was carrying not only a mobile phone and a saw, but also drills, an earphone, a memory card, batteries and a phone charger.
“It’s tough to find out who’s responsible for the action as the cat doesn’t speak,” a prison spokesperson told local paper Estado de S. Paulo.
All 263 detainees in the prison of Arapiraca, a city of 215,000 in the state of Alagoas, are considered suspects in the plot, which is currently under investigation by local police.
The cat was taken to an animal disease center to received medical care.
