Pablo Bertozzi, director of the Policia Penitenciaria (Penitentiary Police) someone had come up with the bright idea of loading the pigeon with the drugs. Bertozzi added the bird had been trained to visit the cell block where prisoners fed it.

Prison officials say this is not the first time animals have been used as drug mules. Bertozzi noted that in the past, prisoners used cats to move the drugs from one cell block to another. But now have to be vigilant of the air above the prison.
