A truck driver, whose name was not revealed, was arrested this Wednesday (20) for drug trafficking, on the BR-364, when he tried to leave Rio Branco with a shipment of more than 200 kilos of narcotics. The act was made by a team of the Federal Highway Police of Acre (PRF), at the inspection post in Acrelândia.

According to the superintendent of the PRF, Getúlio Azevedo, the team that approached the truck was in routine inspection on the stretch that left the state of Acre. The driver would have shown a lot of nervousness during the approach and, therefore, the police officers decided to do a more thorough search of the vehicle.

“Observing some anomalies in the structure of the vehicle, the team decided to bring it to our operational unit, where there were better means for a detailed inspection, and they were successful in finding in a cavity of the structure of the body of the trailer the amount of 202 kilos of paste based on cocaine and cocaine hydrochloride,” said the superintendent.

Due to the structure of the vehicle, PRF needed the help of a team from the Fire Department to be able to remove the narcotic. “Due to the configuration of the structure of the trailer’s body made up of thick metal sheets, action by the firefighters was necessary. Once this work was done, we were able to open a window in the structure and remove the packages that were packed in the cavity.”

The prisoner, the cart and the drug were taken to the Federal Police headquarters in Rio Branco for due procedures.
