Five Brazilians, all from Pará, were arrested with more than two tons of cocaine. Police suspect that the traffickers used a new route: they exchanged the river waters for the oceans, on top of South America.
A new maritime route, used by traffickers to take drugs to Europe, triggered the number of cocaine seizures in Cape Verde, Africa. Last week, five Brazilians, all from Pará, were arrested with more than two tons of cocaine inside their boat.
The boat left Belém and would have sailed for more than 3,000 kilometers until it was intercepted by police as it approached Cape Verde, in Africa. The drug was found in a joint operation by the police of Cape Verde, Portugal and Brazil. But who were the five Brazilian crew members who were arrested in the act on charges of international drug trafficking? See the Fantastico report.
