A man was arrested with over 276 kilos of cocaine in a boat that was transported in a stork truck on BR-277 in Balsa Nova, in the Curitiba Metropolitan Region. The action took place on Tuesday night (20), in front of the São Luiz do Purunã Operational Unit.
Federal Police (PF) and Federal Highway Police (PRF) agents approached the truck at about 7:30 pm. During the inspection, agents were surprised that the boat’s apparently unused invoice had been issued three months ago.
After finding that the vessel’s weight seemed above normal, the police decided to do a thorough check, when they found the cocaine. The drug was distributed in 255 tablets.
The truck driver said he took the boat from Cascavel and was leaving it in Curitiba. He said he did not know about the narcotics.
According to the penal code, the crime of drug trafficking is provided for five to 15 years in prison.
The man was arrested. He and the incident were referred to the Federal Police Superintendence in Curitiba.
