Lorenzo the Parrot arrested for aiding drug cartel

A parrot in Colombia has been arrested after it was seized during a police drugs raid. According to environmental authorities, Lorenzo the parrot was trying to tip-off a local drug cartel when officers conducted an undercover raid early Wednesday.

“This parrot was sending out alerts,” said police officer Hollman Oliveira. “You could say he was some sort of watch bird.”

Authorities claim Lorenzo is one of nearly 1700 parrots seized by officials after being trained by drug traffickers to act as lookouts. Lorenzo caused quite the stir on Wednesday as he was presented to journalists. The well trained creature even showed off his look out skills as he yelled out: “run, run you are going to get caught.”

“He spent the whole morning saying that,” police Colonel Freddy Veloza told RCN television.

Despite Lorenzo’s attempts, Veloza’s officers still managed to seize more than two-hundred weapons, a stolen motorcycle and a large quantity of marijuana. At least four men and two other birds were also arrested in the raids.

Does this mean the battle is over? Are Mexicans attempting to recruit parrots into their ranks? What level of afraid should I be?
