Cat Nabbed for Smuggling Cell Phones Into Russian Prison

Cat Nabbed for Smuggling Cell Phones into Russian Prison

Earlier this year, a cat was busted for attempting to smuggle escape tools into a prison in Brazil. Apparently the story caught the attention of an inmate in Russia, who recently tried something similar. But, once again, the cat was caught before delivering the contraband. Crime doesn’t pay, kitties. When will you learn?

According to reports, the inmate had an accomplice strap two cell phones, batteries and chargers to a black and white cat, then send the feline over the fence of a corrective labor camp in Russia’s Komi region.

Evidently, the cat didn’t get very far and was nabbed by prison officials, who noted that this smuggling attempt was unique among all others.

“They have foiled various attempts to smuggle banned objects into Prison Colony Number One before, but in the case of the cat, the prison colony is at a loss: nothing like this has happened in the prison’s history,” said the regional prison service.

The fate of the cat is unknown, but we bet he’s currently sweating it out in a kitty gulag somewhere.
