ARAPIRACA, Brazil, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Guards said they consider all 250 inmates at a Brazil prison suspects after they discovered a cat sneaking into the facility with tools taped to its body.

Prison officials said in a statement they believe the two drills, two saws, headset, memory card, three batteries, cell phone and cell phone charger taped to the animal were meant to aid a prisoner in escaping the prison in Arapiraca.

The guards noticed something strange about the body of the black and white cat as it attempted to enter at the gate of the prison Dec. 31, the statement said.

It is not clear which inmate the cat was allegedly aiding, CNN reported Sunday.

The cat was turned over to animal control.
