Brazilian Police Seize Cocaine for Olympic Games

SAO PAULO – Brazilian police seized 94 kilos of cocaine buried at a ranch in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul which, according to authorities, was meant be sold during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

According to the Civil Police of Mato Grosso do Sul, the drugs were located some 15 kilometers from Corumba, a town bordering Bolivia. During the operation, three men aged between 33-45 and a woman aged 55 were arrested.

Commissioner Sam Suzumura told reporters that backhoes were employed to remove the drugs and that the operation was initiated after receiving telephone complaints.

In addition to cocaine, ammunition and mobile phones with call records to Bolivia were found in the houses of the suspects.

Part of the drug was labeled with pictures of football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar as well as a “Joker,” a fictional character, which criminal groups in Rio de Janeiro identify with.
