Prison guards in the northeastern state of Alagoas, Brazil apprehended a feathered law-breaker on Saturday at a maximum-security penitentiary. The perpetrator was a pigeon that guards suspect was used to transporting drugs or messages between criminal factions inside and out of the prison. The pigeon was wearing a red bag with the inscription "PCC" on it, which are the initials in Portuguese for Brazil's infamous First Capital Command gang.
