New Zealand cat brings drugs home

19 May 2014, 14:43

Wellington - Police in southern New Zealand were left scratching their heads after a cat in the city of Dunedin deposited a five-gram bag of cannabis at its owner's house, a local newspaper reported on Monday.

Dunedin Police Sergeant Reece Munro said a local woman had phoned the police station on Sunday evening to report that her cat had left a "bag of drugs" on the doorstep, according to the Otago Daily Times.

"You hear of cats bringing dead birds and rats home, but I've never seen anything like this before," he told the newspaper.

Sergeant Munro said the origins of the cannabis, which had a street value of about $86, remained a mystery and investigations were continuing.

On the possibility of adding a feline drug-detecting division to the police force, Sergeant Munro said "this might be something police could explore in the future."
