CHISINAU, Moldova -- A cat has been busted for smuggling pot into a prison in Moldova.
Guards became suspicious about the feline, which routinely entered and left the prison through a hole in a fence, when they noticed its odd collar. On closer inspection, they found two packets of marijuana attached to it.
The Department of Penitentiary Institutions said Friday someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison.
It's not the first time a cat has been used as a courier. 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.
