Cat Busted Ferrying Pot to Cons in Moldova Prison

00 Cat Criminals in Moldova. 20.10.13

______________________________

They busted a cat for smuggling pot into a prison in Moldova. Prison 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. On Friday, the Department of Penitentiary Institutions said that someone in the village of Pruncul used the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison. Whoever the human was, this wasn’t a first regarding cat couriers at lockups. In June, guards caught a cat carrying mobile phones and chargers taped to its belly to inmates in Penal Colony Nr 1 near the city of Syktyvkar in northern Russia.

Prison guards nabbed an audacious cat after they caught it red-handed trying to smuggle two bags of cannabis into a prison in Moldova. Now, the prison authorities are looking for the moggy‘s trainer, who they believe may live in the nearby village of Pruncul, supplying inmates with illegal drugs for some time. Prison officers became suspicious of the grey and white cat, which regularly came and went through a hole in the fence, when they noticed it was wearing a peculiar collar. When they apprehended the cat, they found two packets of marijuana attached to it. The Justice Ministry posted a video of the find online. It showed one officer gently stroking the bemused cat whilst removing the purple collar. Then, a second officer cut through two lumps in the collar, to reveal cannabis in its herb form. Yesterday, the Department of Penitentiary Institutions said that someone in the nearby village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with the drug at Penitenciarului Nr 9 prison.

It isn’t the first time that someone used cats in Eastern Europe to evade capture by prison authorities. In June, guards caught a cat carrying mobile phones and chargers taped to its belly to inmates in Penal Colony Nr 1 near the city of Syktyvkar in northern Russia. In August last year, police in Rostov Oblast foiled a plot to use a cat to smuggle heroin into a prison, according to a report in the Moscow Times. Inmates took the cat out of the prison following their release, smuggling the animal out in their bags, giving it to drug dealers waiting outside. Then, they stuffed the drug into the cat’s collar, and released the animal, which sneaked back into the prison. In a similar case in 2010, a prison do killed a heroin-carrying cat whilst trying to enter a prison in Tatarstan. Inmates in Arapiraca, in Brazil’s northeastern Alagoas state, also used these evasion tactics. Earlier this year, guards caught a cat trying to slip through the gates with tools, including a saw and a drill, tapped to its body.

8 October 2012. It’s a Joke, Son… A Goof Sent to Me by a Cabinet Member

Yes, you too can get one of these certificates suitable for framing. They’re only ten bucks. My contact got it by sending away in response to an ad in a comic book. They also have a “Doctor of Divinity” certificate too… that costs ten bucks, as well. Wait a minute… are you thinking what I’m thinking? Is that how Dickie Wood got his Kanditura in one year? Ten bucks and a box top? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

Check out the cannabis sativa leaf on the seal… “No stems, no seeds that you don’t need, JP’s smokin’ some bad-ass weed”.
