Prison guards in northeast Brazil foiled a jailbreak attempt by apprehending a cat co-conspirator.
Officers at the Arapiraca city prison spotted the black and white feline entering the compound with drills, saw blades, batteries and a cell phone taped to its body. The materials were to be used by inmates to dig an escape tunnel, according to a statement released Saturday by the Alagoas state prison administration. The animal has been turned turned over to Animal Control for the length of the investigation.
Sky News reports that all 263 prisoners are suspects in the escape attempt, although authorities admit, “It will be hard to discover who is responsible since the cat does not speak.”
