Cat caught with suspect gear 'detained' at Brazil jail

Prison guards in northeastern Brazil detained a cat after it entered a gate and crossed a yard with its body wrapped in tape.

An inspection at the jail in Arapiraca in the state of Alagoas revealed it was carrying a saw, drills, a mobile phone, charger and other accessories.

Police say the animal was unable to volunteer any information and was taken to a welfare centre.

All 263 inmates are under suspicion.
