(Newser) – At least one prisoner in Brazil may still be waiting for his cell phone. Authorities at a prison in Arapiraca city apprehended a white cat slipping through the gate with all kinds of goodies strapped to it, including a cell phone and charger, earphones, drill bits, and files, the BBC reports. But prison officials say they don't know who was behind the clandestine delivery: "It's tough to find out who's responsible for the action as the cat doesn't speak," says a spokesperson. As for the feline smuggler, it's been sent to a local animal center.
