Rio – Agents from the Federal Police’s Drug Enforcement Department (DRE) arrested a 50-year-old man who was transporting almost two tons of marijuana hidden in the body of a trailer, on the morning of this Friday (23), on the Presidente Dutra Highway, in the municipality of Piraí, in the south of Fluminense. After weighing the drug, the PF formalized the seizure of about 1,824 kg of the drug.

According to police information, the cargo was found during an approach, carried out by DRE agents with the support of sniffer dogs, and was destined for several communities in the city of Rio.

“The substance was hidden inside the body of the truck, in the midst of a legal load. This is a common practice on the part of these criminals, who bring legal substances to evade the authorities’ inspection.” told delegate Bruno Humelino.

The man was sent along with the vehicle and the drug, which is still being accounted for, to the Federal Police Superintendence in Rio de Janeiro, in Praça Mauá, downtown, for the drawing up of the arrest warrant in the act for the crime of drug trafficking, whose sentence can reach 15 years in prison.
