One of the leaders of the PCC gang, identified as Wilson Sebastião Ferreira Júnior, was arrested, this Wednesday (31), during a course for helicopter piloting in the city of Rio Claro, in São Paulo.
The man, who is a native of Ribeirão Preto, was living in Guarujá, and was approached by the Civil Police helicopter “Pelicano” while taking a class with an instructor, whose identity was not disclosed.

The criminal, who already flies the plane, was accompanied by his girlfriend and the flight instructor, who was unaware of the student’s involvement in the crime. Before being arrested, Wilson broke his cell phone on his knee, and lay down on the floor to be handcuffed.
In his possession were found R $ 23 thousand and false documents. The man is still supposedly linked to a gang responsible for renting a farm in Recreio Anhanguera, where, on January 28, several weapons and ammunition were seized.
The case is still being investigated by law enforcement authorities.
