using Halloween As a tool in their favor, the Peruvian police “disguised” an operation against drug traffickers. The agents disguised themselves as Avengers to carry out an operation.
Thus, four members of a special force, dressed as superheroes, broke into a house and captured cocaine-based pasta vendors in a neighborhood in eastern Lima.
The operation called “Marvel” It was this last Saturday and it started when the Captain America, Thor, Spiderman Y Black Widow They walked the streets of a dangerous neighborhood in the San Juan de Lurigancho district, one of the most populous in the Peruvian capital.
“The officers wore the suits of heroes go unnoticed on the streets and close to (a) school. They were promoting an October 31st arts event in another location with audio equipment, ”a police spokesman told AFP.
As can be seen in local television videos, what looked like another walk of disguised people on Halloween ended up taking shape when they reached a house door.
There, “Captain America” put his shield aside for a while, asked “Thor” for the hammer (a club) and, after “Spiderman” pulled the mosquito net, smashed the iron and glass door. . This paved the way for the 10 policemen who unexpectedly entered the house.
Amid screams and surprises, several police officers come in and help them catch the family selling illicit drugs and think it “was a Halloween joke,” according to reports in Peru.
The superheroes, members of the Green Team, arrested the occupants of the house, three men and one woman, called “The villains of Mariátegui“, according to the police.
“On this property, an entire family was involved in micro-marketing drugs. They would sell them in a nearby park,” said the colonel. David VillanuevaChief of the Green Squad of the National Police.
The operation led to the seizure of 3,250 small packages of cocaine-based paste, 287 bags of cocaine and 127 bags of marijuana, which were hidden in the house.
A pound of basic pasta sells for at least $ 380 in Peru, while a pound of cocaine hydrochloride – the purest drug – sells for around $ 1,000.
