The drug raid in Brazil took a funny turn after the guard dog decided to lay down next to its owners, the drug dealers.
The incident from July 28th is making its waves on social media. The raid was reportedly conducted in Hortolandia, Sao Paulo state, Brazil. The authorities seized 1.1 tonnes of marijuana.
Yet, nothing tracked as much attention as the supposed guard dog, clearly a failed investment.
The video shows three handcuffed drug dealers on the floor, handcuffed, surrendering, just like their massive Rottweiler.
Even funnier is that the dog took things quite seriously and did not make a sound while obeying the police rules. Perhaps it was an undercover police puppy?
Despite the odd dog's behavior, the police seized the drugs shipped to the house from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul state.
The police were watching the property, waiting for the deal so that they could catch the deals red-handed. The reports said that the drugs would be sold in Campinas.
The men, including the alleged owner of the house, were taken into custody. The dog, however, was not. The naughty puppy was left at home with a woman who was on the property at the time of the arrest.
At the beginning of July, residents of a city in Columbia felt a huge marijuana cloud. Initially, the residents thought the fire was in Bello, Medellín. However, the smell gave away a different conclusion.
As it turned out, the police tried to remove seized marijuana in controlled burning, which got out of control.
A town resident Edilberto Castaño told Caracol TV that they felt a horrible smoke "coming out of the battalion, a tremendous smell of marijuana that stopped everyone."
Daniela Ortega, secretary of security for Bello, stated:
"We invite citizens to continue denouncing and to continue believing in the institutions."
However, just like this poor guard dog, that faith in authorities did not last, and three blocks had to be evacuated.
Colombian newspaper El Espectador wrote that one resident said:
"Complete negligence. So-called controlled burning."
"Several apartment towers had to be evacuated because of this little joke. Someone needs to answer for this bad decision."
