Guards patrolling a prison colony in Russia's north saw a cat scaling the fence and noticed something a little fishy, The Associated Press reports.
On closer inspection, they found several cellphones and chargers taped to the animal's belly.
The feline's clandestine mission took place at Penal Colony No. 1 in Komi province, some 600 miles northeast of Moscow.
But was it a copycat crime? Last December, a Brazilian kitty was caught delivering contraband to inmates at a Brazilian prison.
The fate of the Russian cat is unknown, according to The Moscow Times.
