From Reuters:

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – A cat carrying a saw and a mobile phone was “detained” as it entered a prison gate in northeast Brazil, Brazilian media reported on Saturday.

Prison guards were surprised when they saw a white cat crossing the main gate of the prison, its body wrapped with tape. A closer look showed the feline also carried drills, an earphone, a memory card, batteries and a phone charger.

All 263 detainees in the prison of Arapiraca, a city of 215,000 people in the state of Alagoas, are considered suspect in the plot, which is being investigated by local police.

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.

    Cats are loyal – they’ll never spill the beans.

    I don’t find cats loyal at all.

    The cat was likely very well paid. it knows the code and as a professional understands the danger speaking to the man. It doesn’t want to end up swimming with the fish.

    This cat, however, must have been a new hire. It should have found a better way in.

  • The cat’s out of the bag, now.
