The Civil Police of Ponta Porã incinerated this Tuesday (14), 175.8 kilos of cocaine that were seized only in the first half of this month, in the border region, about 323 kilometers from Campo Grande.
Considering that a kilogram of the drug can cost up to R$ 179,200 in the state, it is estimated that around R$ 31.3 million in cocaine turned to ashes during incineration.
The burning was carried out by investigators from the SIG (Sector of General Investigations) of the 1st Police Station in Ponta Porã and was assisted by the city’s experts and other competent bodies.
Incineration is a routine job performed by the Civil Police, which seizes drugs during joint actions of the Ponta Porã municipal security forces.
