Parrot arrested for alerting drug dealers police were coming
The Parrot which was arrested after it alerted ‘drug dealers’ that the police were coming, was shouting “Mummy, police” as soon as security operatives arrived at a house in the Vila Irma Dulce neighbourhood of the city of Teresina. The green-feathered bird which was taken into custody where he was photographed perched inside a chicken-wire cage, before being transferred to Teresina Zoo, was owned by a drug dealer nicknamed “India” who had been arrested twice for drug trafficking in the past.
“He must have been trained for that,” said one officer involved in the operation. “As soon as police got close he began shouting.” “Lots of police officers have come by and he’s said nothing,” said local vet Alexandre Clark.
Footage of the raid’s aftermath aired by R7 showed police cataloguing small bags of crack, while the parrot sits obediently on a countertop next to a racecar helmet and a glass bottle. Husband of the drug dealer who owns the bird was identified only as Edvan, 30, and he was arrested after crack cocaine was found in the house during the raid. The couple’s 16-year-old daughter who was found with cannabis in her underwear, was released with a warnin according to Brazilian TV station Glob
Loughborough Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robert Allison, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Loughborough has been crowned – for the second time – the Whatuni Student Choice Awards University of the Year. As this award is voted for by students it makes it even more of an achievement.”
