The 32-year-old politician reportedly drew a large crowd around her vehicle as she handed out political leaflets. The gathering drew the attention of nearby police officers who went to investigate. As the officers made their way through the crowd which began to disperse, Lima and an unidentified accomplice managed to make their exit as well.

When police began to search the parked vehicle, they uncovered not only the distribution leaflets but hundreds of cocaine packets attached to them. The campaign fliers also contained specific information on how to vote for Lima.

“According to locals, she had been distributing the drugs since early in the morning, on condition that people vote for her,” Police chief Daniel Ottoni told TNOnline.
