Rio De Janeiro - The Brazilian authorities confiscated on Tuesday a shipment of cocaine and crack, wrapped in plastic bags, bearing the Olympic rings and the logo of the Rio 2016, according to police sources.
The drugs were found in a house in the central neighborhood of Lapa in Rio de Janeiro, including 93 doses of cocaine, 28 of crack and 13 40-caliber bullets, the use of which Brazil has outlawed outside of security forces.
Beyond the Olympic logos, some of the drugs were also wrapped in bags featuring the logo of a well-known drink brand.
In recent years, Brazilian police have seized a number of drug shipments featuring the names and images of football stars or sports events.
