Brazilian police have arrested Luiz Carlos da Rocha a major drug lord who used plastic surgeries to help him escape arrest for nearly three decades.

Police say Rocha known as “White Head” was arrested on Saturday in the state of Mato Grosso.

He is been sentenced by Brazilian courts to more than 50 years in prison for international drug trafficking and money laundering.

Police say Rocha’s cartel produced cocaine in Colombia, Peru and Bolivia and exported it to Europe and the United States via Brazil and Paraguay.

In Brazil alone, police estimated that Rocha brought in 5 tones of cocaine per month.

Police also seized about $10 million worth of the drug lord’s assets, including planes, properties and luxury cars.
