Guards started eying the feline felon, which came to the prison through a hole in the fence, when they saw its unusual collar, reports The Associated Press. Upon having a closer look, they found two small packets of cannabis attached to it.
Moldova’s Department of Penitentiary Institutions on Friday said that someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat to supply local prison inmates with weed.
This wasn’t the first time cat contraband couriers have been used. Back in June, prison guards captured a cat carrying cellphones and chargers taped to its tummy; it was being used by inmates in Penal Colon Number 1 near the northern Russian city of Siktyvkar.
