Cartel drug boss known as ‘Her Majesty’ who lived luxury life using crime cash busted while on holiday in Brazil


A DRUG cartel mastermind known as “Her Majesty” has been arrested by cops while she was on holiday in Brazil.

Valeska Pereira Monteiro, 27, who used the money earned to fund a life of luxury, is suspected of controlling the finances of a criminal faction.

According to cops, she acted as the “finance arm” of the drug-trafficking gang operating in the north-eastern Brazilian state of Ceara.

She was also in charge of the distribution of its territory among members.

Monteiro was captured in Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul by the state’s Civil Police in fulfilment of an arrest warrant against her.

She was dubbed ‘Majestade’ (‘Her Majesty’) after she reportedly spent her earnings on lavish trips.

Before her arrest, police report that Her Majesty spent a month in Rio Grande do Norte and two months in Rio de Janeiro, where she stayed in Copacabana and Ipanema – two high-cost tourist spots in the state capital.

She then went on holiday to Gramado, where she was arrested.

Her Majesty has a prior criminal record for theft, criminal association, crimes against public trust and drug trafficking.

She had also been arrested for leading a gang that robbed residential and commercial properties in Fortaleza in 2014.

Her Majesty came under the police’s radar again last year, after the police discovered she was doing the accounting for the Rio de Janeiro-based criminal gang.

She was given an ankle tag, which she broke in April – she was then considered a fugitive from justice until her recent arrest.

Majesty’s capture is relevant to the fight against criminal organisations, according to The Delegate for the Repression of Organised Criminal Actions. 

“Her arrest is relevant because it brings a great message, while we have individuals violently disputing territories, the market and drug trafficking, there are these high-ranking individuals who have command power, who benefit from these financial resources raised with criminal activity”, Deputy General, Márcio Rodrigo Gutiérrez explained.

On the same day as Her Majesty’s arrest, police also arrested a man and a teenager believed to be from the same criminal gang.

Two pistols were seized with the pair, in addition to 80 ammunition.

On Monday, the Civil Police captured Mateus de Souza Silva and another teenager.

Bags of marijuana, cocaine and crack were seized, as well as five precision scales and cash.
