A pigeon has been caught flying into a prison in Costa Rica holding cocaine and cannabis. It was landing in the concourse of the La Reforma Jail when it was captured and taken in to be further inspected. 14g of cocaine and a similar amount of Cannabis, with a combined street value of £180 was found wrapped in plastic in a small pouch strapped to the pigeon’s chest.
Weirdly though, Costa Rica’s Ministry of Justice seem to be punishing the pigeon for the offence, posting it’s mugshot online with the caption “narcopaloma” or “drugs dove”, along with the date of it’s ‘detention’.
The pigeon is now being held in a zoo behind bars. Poor little guy. Lol.
