Over the course of 52 days of actions on land, air and water, the security forces and the six institutions involved in Mar de Minas III presented results that reinforce everyone’s commitment to public security in the state. The objective of one of the largest integrated operations ever carried out in the country was to create a security belt in areas surrounded by three Integrated Public Security Regions – Risp’s 6, 7 and 18 – and establish a siege against crime in the Lago de Furnas region – with the cities of Lavras and Divinópolis as focal points.

Actions in the water are always one of the main focuses of Mar de Minas, due to the river extension and grandeur of the dam. In total, 731 vessels were inspected, of which 75 were notified and 13 were seized. Through inspections, it was possible to find 19 unqualified boat drivers and 11 crossing ferries were notified, as well as a bar and a floating station. The civil aviation inspections, in turn, resulted in 18 locations and six aeronauts being inspected, in addition to five aircraft also being checked.

On dry land, the more than 50 days of operation resulted in 964 vehicles inspected, with a total of ten vehicles seized, eight removed from circulation and two drivers caught without a license on the roads. More than 60 kilos of drugs were seized – including hashish, marijuana, cocaine and crack – as well as synthetic drugs and loló. During Mar de Minas III, 683 adults were arrested/or taken to a Police Station and 45 teenagers were apprehended.

During the actions, 51 firearms were taken from circulation, in addition to 38 bladed weapons and ten simulacra weapons.
