A cat arrested and detained for allegedly smuggling heroin, memory chip and SIM cards into Sri Lanka has reportedly escaped from the country’s high-security prison.
According to reports on Monday, the cat was nabbed by jail intelligence officials on Saturday at the high-security Welikada Prison.
Reports said nearly two grams of heroin, two SIM cards and a memory chip were found in a small plastic bag tied around the cat’s neck.
But it escaped on Sunday from a prison room where it was kept, the Aruna newspaper said.
There was no immediate comment from prison authorities.
The prison had reported an increase in incidents of people throwing small packets of drugs, cell phones and phone chargers over the walls in recent weeks.
Sri Lanka is battling a major drug problem with some anti-narcotics detectives also implicated in selling confiscated drugs.
Police last week seized an eagle allegedly used by drug traffickers to distribute narcotics in a suburb of Colombo.
