The mistake was not making a cat suit to cover the tape.
"A cat carrying a saw and a mobile phone was "detained" as it entered a prison gate in northeast Brazil, Brazilian media reported on Saturday.
Prison guards were surprised when they saw a white cat crossing the main gate of the prison, its body wrapped with tape."
"A closer look showed the feline also
carried drills, an earphone, a memory card,
batteries and a phone charger."
"All 263 detainees in the prison of Arapiraca, a city of 215,000 people in the state of Alagoas, are considered suspect in the plot, which is being investigated by local police."Cat caught sneaking saw, phone into Brazil prison, Reuters>>
