A drug cartel mastermind known as “Her Majesty” was arrested by police while on vacation in Brazil.
Valisca Pereira Montero, 27, who used the money to make a living, is suspected of controlling the finances of a criminal gang.
According to police, he worked as the “finance arm” of a drug trafficking gang in the northeastern Brazilian state of Sierra Leone.

Montero was arrested by state civil police in Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul, on a warrant for his arrest.
He was reportedly called ‘Majestic’ (‘Har Majesty’) after spending his earnings on lavish tours.
Prior to her arrest, police reported that she spent a month in Rio Grande do Norte and two months in Rio de Janeiro, where she stayed in Copacabana and Apanema – two high-value tourist destinations in the state capital.
