A Brazilian police officer drove his car into a plane so it could not take off with a load of stolen computers, telephones and printers.

The smugglers were apprehended after the collision which occurred on a dirt airstrip in the state of Sao Paulo.

A federal policeman said the same plane had been used to bring in cocaine from Paraguay, Bolivia and Colombia for distribution in Brazil.
