Brazilian prisoners using pigeons to fly mobile phones to them

By Super Admin

London, Mar 31 (ANI): Brazilian prisoners, who no longer have access to communication with the outside world, were discovered to be using carrier pigeons to get mobile phones delivered to them.

Two of the pigeons were intercepted by prison guards as they were carrying mobile phones to detainees at a prison in Sorocaba, 62 miles from Sao Paolo, revealed a spokesperson for the state penitentiary system.

"Penitentiary agents found the pigeons outside the Danilo Pinheiro prison but, fortunately, the birds did not have time to enter the prison building with the material," the Telegraph quoted Rosana Alberto as saying.

The two birds caught on two successive days were each carrying a small bag containing a mobile phone and charger, she revealed.

The use of pigeons to smuggle contraband into jail is the latest twist in an ongoing struggle by criminal networks to deliver forbidden goods into Brazil's prisons. (ANI)
