Brazilian cops don’t mess around – as we’ve all seen they’ll apparently stop at nothing to get their suspect. In this weeks episode Brazilian Federal Police find themselves face-to-face with a drug-laden airplane about to take off.
Fairly problematic situation, right? Apparently not for the DPF. They opted to race towards the taxing aircraft in an attempt to ram it off the runway. And it worked. Five people were arrested and 234 pounds of cocaine paste were seized in the operation based out of Santa Vitória, Wednesday. Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time Brazilian cops faced off with an aircraft (see below).
