Rifles were in flat
Last Tuesday (12), representatives of the Rio de Janeiro Civil Police Homeopathy found 117 incomplete rifles, type M-16, in the house of a friend of Military Police Officer Ronnie Lessa in the North Sea in Rio.
The guns, all new, were dismantled in boxes – all they had left were the pipes. The police are investigating whether the Lessa traffic shoots and hides the material there.

According to the civil law secretary Marcos Vinícius Braga, this is the largest arrest of rifles in Rio's history, and even exceeds that made at the Rio International Airport in 2017, sent by Fredereick Barbieri, known as "Commander". At that time, 60 guns from the United States were found within swimming pool heaters.

Prison for arms trade
The owner of the house, Alexandre Mota de Souza, told the police that his childhood friend Ronnie handed over boxes and asked them to keep them and not open them. Alexander was arrested with suspected arms trade. The police arrived at him tracking down a boat that would be Ronnie, but it would be in his friend's name.
"Alexandre has been friends with Lessa for years, and he only did a favor by placing these orders because he didn't know what was in his apartment. He was surprised to know the contents, but he has nothing to do with this episode regrettable to the Councilor, "said his lawyer.

A video of the time of the seizure of arms brings Alexander's voice and refuses to commit a crime:
"I didn't do anything, this guy kicked me out, man … I have no idea it's completely sealed, I haven't opened it, he said I would get it … I trusted him. I thought He was raised with us, he lived here on the side since he was a child, "he tells the police. "He still said to me:" Just don't open the boxes. & # 39; "
