Brazilian Man (22) Convicted Of Dealing In Dangerous Drugs

A 22-year-old Brazilian man was on Monday convicted of dealing in dangerous drugs after he was found in possession of cocaine worth over ZWL$30 million.

Guilherme Sodre Alvernaz DA Silveria will be sentenced this Tuesday after he was found guilty of dealing in dangerous drugs.

Da Silveria from Sao Paulo in Brazil was arrested on 7 April on landing at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport aboard an Ethiopian Airways flight.

He was found in possession of 4.3kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of more than ZWL$30 million.

Da Silveria was intercepted by a team comprising of detectives from CID Drugs and Narcotics Harare, Canine Harare, CID Homicide Harare and CID Law and Order Harare.

The law enforcement agents conducted searches in his luggage, leading to the seizure of a whitish powder that was wrapped in silver foil paper stashed in the lining of the accused’s black jacket.

Preliminary field tests were done on the powder in the presence of Da Silveria and it tested positive for cocaine.

A South African woman was recently convicted of illegally dealing in dangerous drugs and was sentenced to 12 years in jail.
