A wily cat was recently discovered to have been smuggling marijuana into a Moldovan prison, after guards noticed its strange collar.
The cat had routinely entered and left the prison through a hole in a fence. Upon closer inspection, guards discovered two bags of weed attached to its collar.
According to The Department of Penitentiary Institutions, someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier, to supply inmates with their wares at the prison. Here's the patsy in question:

In related news, guards had found another cat with cellphones and chargers taped to its stomach in June, which were being carried to inmates in Penal Colony No. 1, near Syktyvkar, in northern Russia. Here is a picture of that cat, nabbed while on his clandestine mission:
