The suspect, who was wanted by the courts after being convicted of a murder that occurred in the state of Acre, was approached on BR-381, near Pouso Alegre, in the south of Minas.

According to the corporation, the police were carrying out a routine action to combat crime when they approached a bus at km 871 of the highway.
