At the main prison in Sri Lanka, South Asia, a cat that was detained while allegedly trying to smuggle drugs and cell phone SIM cards has escape.
The cat was found by jail intelligence officials at Welikada Prison, an officer at the prison stated that the cat had nearly two grams of heroin, two SIM cards and a memory chip in a small plastic bag tied around the neck.
No law in Sri Lanka speaks about arresting animals but the police kept the cat in the hope of the cat leading them to the actual smugglers.
The cat escaped from the prison room it was kept in on Sunday the 2nd of August 2020, it is said to have escaped through a fence when the prison guards went to feed it.
The prison had however reported that there was an increase of people throwing small packets of drugs, cell phones and phone chargers over the walls in the past couple of weeks.
Sri Lanka is suffering a big drug problem at the moment with some anti-narcotics detectives being implicated in selling drugs that have been confiscated from smugglers.
Police got a hold of an eagle last week that was allegedly being used by drug smugglers to transport narcotics in the Colombo suburb.
