An anti-crime wonder! Cops dressed as Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor take down a drug ring in Peru

  • Drug dealers thought it was a joke when Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor showed up at their home on Halloween in Peru
  • Perplexity quickly turned to horror when they released that they were police officers
  • Officers had been pretending to be promoting a Halloween concert when they raided a house and arrested three men and a woman on drug charges.

At first, the drug dealers thought it was a joke when Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor showed up at their house on Halloween in Peru.

But bewilderment quickly turned to horror when they revealed the ‘superheroes’ weren’t locals playing a prank on them – instead it was four policemen in disguise who were there to arrest them in connection with a major drug case.

Three of the Avengers – Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor – have been joined by Catwoman in a mix of the Marvel and DC Comics books for the undercover police operation in the Peruvian capital of Lima.

The operation, dubbed “Marvel”, saw the four disguised police officers casually walking down a street while pretending to promote a Halloween concert in Lima’s San Juan de Lurigancho neighborhood on Saturday.

But upon arriving at a specific house, Captain America borrowed Thor’s hammer to break down a steel door, allowing 10 reserve police officers to enter and arrest three men and a woman.

“In this building, a whole family was dedicated to the micro-marketing of drugs. The drugs were going to be sold in a nearby park,” police Colonel David Villanueva said.

Police seized 3,250 small packets of base cocaine paste – a crude coca leaf extract – along with 287 bags of cocaine and 127 of marijuana.

A kilo of cocaine paste sells for around $380 (£330) in Peru, while a kilo of cocaine hydrochloride, the purest form, sells for around $1,000 (£869).

Residents gathered outside the house as they watched in amazement as Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor and Catwoman – all now wearing police vests – lead the four handcuffed suspects towards a police vehicle.

The tactic of launching raids, especially to eliminate drug gangs using officers in suits, is a common tactic of the Peruvian police to ensure the element of surprise which police say has brought notable successes. these last years.

In 2020, members of the Peruvian police’s anti-drug squad dressed as Santa Claus and an elf broke into a house in Lima – not to deliver gifts but to capture a suspected cocaine and drug trafficker in connection of an anti-drug operation.

The officers, dressed in red, white and green outfits with body armor hidden underneath, arrived in an undercover van before breaking into the house with a large hammer to apprehend their suspect.
