CHISINAU, Moldova (October 18, 2013)--A cat was busted for smuggling pot into a prison in Moldova after guards became suspicious about the feline, which routinely entered and left the prison through a hole in a fence when the noticed the animal’s odd collar.
On closer inspection, they found two packets of marijuana attached to the collar.
The Department of Penitentiary Institutions said Friday that someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison.
Whoever the human was, it wasn't a first involving cat couriers and prisons.
In June, guards caught a cat carrying cellphones and chargers taped to its belly to inmates in Penal Colony No. 1 near the city of Syktyvkar in northern Russia.
