(Scroll down for video) A brazen cat was caught smuggling illegal goods into a prison in Brazil, according to prison officials in Brazil.

The cat that was caught carrying a saw and a mobile phone, was detained while it was entering a prison door in northeast Brazil.

The prison guards were surprised when they saw a white cat crossing the main gate of the prison, with its body wrapped with strong tape. Further analysis showed that the cat also carried batteries, a headset, a memory card and a mobile phone charger.

All 263 detainees at the prison in Arapiraca, a city of 215,000 people in the state of Alagoas, are considered suspects in the plot, which is being investigated by local police.

"It's hard to know who is responsible for the action and the cat will not talk," a prison spokesperson said.

The cat was taken to a center for treating animal diseases for medical care. The incident took place weeks ago, but was first reported by the national press on Saturday.
