SAO PAULO – Brazilian police have found more than two tons (1,930 kilograms) of marijuana inside a trailer truck parked on the grounds of a samba school in the city of Sao Paulo.
The city prosecutors' office said Sunday that two men were detained unloading packages of pot from the tractor trailer.
Police say the school was used as the distribution point for drugs coming from the neighboring state of Mato Grosso do Sul.
Officials say they haven't yet talked to staff of the Gavioes da Fiel samba school.
Leaders of the group could not be reached for comment. It is part of the fan club of the Corinthians, one of Brazil's most popular soccer teams.
