PF arrests Dalmir militiamen and his son, Taillon, targeted by drug traffickers who mistakenly executed doctors in Barra
A military police officer, stationed at the headquarters of the Military Police Secretariat of Rio de Janeiro, in the city center, is one of those arrested by the Federal Police and the Special Action Group to Combat Organized Crime, of the MP-RJ, acting as security for the militiaman Taillon de Alcântara Pereira Barbosa.
According to the police, the agent worked at General Advice, one of several units based at the Corporation’s Headquarters, and worked as a cook.
In a statement to the PF, corporal Felipe Ferreira da Silva said that the arrest took place on the first day he worked for the criminal.
In addition to Corporal Felipe, the PF arrested, in the act, third sergeant Bruno e Silva Affonso, assigned to the 23rd BPM (Leblon) and Adilson Alves Costa, an Army reserve soldier. The trio acted, according to investigators, as Taillon’s security guards.
The PF superintendent, delegate Leandro Almada said that there are no problems with the Military Police and that the action of only federal police officers in the operation this Tuesday (31) and Wednesday (1) was strategic:
“The PM is a partner of the PF. We have carried out several operations. Not only exchanging intelligence data, but operations. In yesterday’s operation, as you saw in today’s deployment, it was a simple matter of strategy. Our team identified that there are targets most relevant of that criminal organization and the start This operation would take place from custody, which was a priority for these individuals precisely because they had command in this organization. There was no need. We had enough resources.”
PF and MPRJ arrest suspects of being part of the Rio das Pedras militia
The state government released the following note about the role of PMs as security guards for militia members:
“The governor of Rio de Janeiro, Cláudio Castro, ordered the Secretary of Military Police, Colonel Luiz Henrique Marinho Pires, that the police officers who were escorting militia member Taillon de Alcântara Pereira Barbosa and his father, Dalmir Barbosa, in Barra da Tijuca , West Zone of Rio, are investigated and, if the crimes are proven, held accountable with complete rigor, including possible expulsion from the corporation. The case should serve as an example for other police officers who become involved with organized crime.
The 2nd Military Judicial Police Station (2nd DPJM), linked to the Corporation’s Internal Affairs Department, will continue to monitor the investigations into the case, which also involves a sergeant from the Brazilian Army.
The Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro, including the Military Police Secretariat, does not condone any misconduct or crimes committed by police officers, rigorously punishing those involved when the facts are established.”
The Eastern Military Command said that second sergeant Adilson Alves Costa is no longer on active duty.
“In response to your request, the Social Communication Section of the Eastern Military Command informs that the soldier in question is no longer part of active service and the case is under the responsibility of public security bodies.
It is worth reiterating that the Brazilian Army does not condone irregularities, repudiating attitudes and behaviors that are in conflict with the law, military values and military ethics.”
According to investigations by the PF and Gaeco, there is a family in command of the militia in Rio das Pedras, in the West Zone of the city.
In addition to the leader of the criminal group: Dalmir Pereira Barbosa, arrested this Tuesday (31) and his son, Taillon, Dalmir’s wife and Taillon’s stepmother, Cátia Gomes Prudente is also part of the militia.
She and Dalmir’s other son, Társio de Alcântara Barbosa, were charged by the Public Ministry. They are accused of laundering the gang’s money. Investigations showed that the two purchased goods to hide financial gains from the crime.
Among them, a house, located on Praia do Café, in Angra dos Reis. The property is located on the edge of the beach and was purchased for R$300,000, but assessed by investigations at R$2 million.
Tarsio and Cátia were arrested.
Profit from violence in Rio das Pedras
Accounts seized by the police show that traders, whether large or small, are extorted with fees ranging from R$10, such as a snack seller, to other businesses that pay up to R$12,000.
Clandestine electricity installations are also targets of extortion.
In a dialogue included in the investigation, a member of the group intimidates a trader into making a clandestine connection, instead of paying the bill to the energy distributor.
Extortion is controlled daily by sending photos to the gang members, showing who did not pay and for what reason.
