The Justice of Rio de Janeiro ordered the police to close the investigation against Yago Correa de Souza, 21, was unfairly arrested as he left a bakery in Jacarezinho, in the north of the state capital, on February 6. Yago was on probation, decided in a custody hearing, but would have to comply with precautionary measures.
Without any evidence, Yago, who was leaving the bakery where he had gone to buy bread for a barbecue that took place at his house with neighbors and family members, was approached by military police, accused of drug trafficking and arrested. The PMs claimed that he was next to a minor who was carrying a bag with 150 grams of marijuana and 30 grams of cocaine.
After making the act, the police authority of the 25th DP itself recommended the release of the boy, since there was doubt that Yago was guilty of the trafficking charge. For the delegate, “Yago would be in the wrong place at the wrong time”.
In an informal conversation with the police, the minor who was also apprehended by the PM did not mention his connection with Yago. Neighbors and relatives testified in favor of the accused, saying that he had the bakery.
