A Correctional Officer at a Canadian jail caught a pigeon on the property carrying a small bag of crystal meth in an attempt to

“drop it off,”

LadBible reported.

A guard reportedly noticed the bird near one of the recreation yards with a small bag around its neck on Dec. 29. 

“A pigeon was located at Pacific Institution, inside the walls, and it appeared to have a small package, sort of like a backpack attached to it,”

president of the Pacific Region for Union of Canadian Correctional Officers John Randle told the outlet. 

Randle suspects the pigeon was trained and sent to the prison.

“Of course, I believe there was some creative work – because the bird moved around quite a bit – in order to track it and capture it.”

He went on to add,

“It’s almost like the inmates and the criminals are going back in time and using older technology.”

The Correctional Service of Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) announced they were launching an investigation but no further details were disclosed. 

According to the outlet, the pigeon was carrying 30 grams of crystal meth inside the little purse. The burd was later set free.
