Parrot Arrested After Warning Alleged Drug Dealer About Police Raid

A parrot is cooling off in police net after tipping off a suspected drug dealer when police arrived his apartment on a raid.

The bizarre incident took place in Brazil.

It’s unclear whether the suspect is a victim in this case or a true gangster in the purest form.

Police in Brazil took a parrot into custody last week during a raid targeting crack dealers, after the animal reportedly cawed “Mum, the police!” in Portuguese, as officers prepared to raid the home of two suspected dealers, according to published reports, including ones in The Guardian and The Washington Post.

Police showed up in Vila Irmã Dulce, a neighborhood in northeast Brazil, when the parrot got loud.

“He must have been trained for this,” one of the police officers told Brazilian media, as reported by The Guardian. “As soon as the police got close, he started shouting.”

Regardless of the heads up from the parrot, police arrested a man and a teenage girl. Their names have not been released, nor has the parrot’s.

Officers brought the bird back to the station — yes, really — but the animal was pretty tight-lipped. In fact, the parrot remained silent, despite authorities’ best efforts.

Hey, the parrot was (reportedly) taught how to cry for help. It seems he was taught not to snitch, as well.

“Lots of police officers have come by and he’s said nothing,” a veterinarian said, according to The Guardian.

Authorities eventually turned over the most loyal bird of all time to a local zoo, where he’s now living a crime-free life (we can only hope).

Police claimed the bird’s owner, known as “India”, had been arrested twice for drug trafficking in the past, reports Independent.

Her husband, identified only as Edvan, 30, was arrested after crack cocaine was found in the house during the raid.

Their 16-year-old daughter, who was found with cannabis in her underwear, was released with a warning, according to Brazilian TV station Globo.
