Cat Found With Hundreds Of Pounds Worth Of Drugs In Its Bed

"Well, would you look what the cat's dragged in" - We've all heard it. Perhaps you're stumbling in still half-pissed from the previous night's festivities. Perhaps you've been neglecting seeing a relative for a long time and have sheepishly gone around to their house on a Sunday afternoon, hoping for a roast.

Very rarely do you heard that sentence used in complete sincerity. Well, get ready, because this is a case in which a cat actually dragged something in with it that was of a hell of a lot more interest than a dead mouse, or half of a bird.

In fact, it was worth hundreds of pounds - not that the cat's owners were of a mind to lay their hands on any of it. It was a huge bag of drugs.

Yes, a resident of St Paul's, Bristol, awoke to discover that their feline companion had been out and about the night before and had stumbled across a carrier bag full to the brim with wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.

When the cat's owners awoke the following day, they discovered the bag next to their sleeping moggy.

Inside it, there were about 30 wraps, which would carry a street value worth hundreds of pounds. Get that cat a hat and a badge - it'd make an excellent drugs cat.

Avon and Somerset Police's neighbourhood team in Ashley posted on Twitter about the discovery:


The official Avon and Somerset Police account then tweeted:

This is shoddy police work - they haven't even investigated the cat. If I was found with hundreds of pounds worth of hard drugs in my bed, I suspect I'd have to answer some serious questions.

But no, the cat is off without any further questioning. It should be suspect number one.

Seriously though, the police then went on to add that anyone who is concerned about drugs being sold in their area should contact their local branch of Crimestoppers.

Similarly, if you are worried that your cat has a drugs problem, there isn't yet a hotline you can contact.
