Two men were arrested with a load of marijuana valued at R$ 900 thousand that was being transported in a truck, loaded with bananas, which was approached by the PMR (Military Highway Police) this Friday (05) at MS-040, in Campo Great.
Police officers were providing support for the unbundling of a trailer on the highway, when a driver approached and questioned the military about the duration of the blockade. The driver’s nervousness raised the suspicions of the police, who, after the highway was cleared, decided to approach him at the junction of the BR-060 ring road.
The 32-year-old driver was accompanied by a 39-year-old man. During the search of the truck, the military found 86 kilos of marijuana and 7.8 kilos of skank wrapped in a tarp, on the shipment of bananas. Faced with the act, the men received a voice of arrest for drug trafficking and were sent, with the vehicle and the drugs, to the Federal Police station in Campo Grande.
