This is the moment cops casually arrive at the motel room of a prison-breaking gang leader where they politely knock on the door and catch him in bed with his girlfriend before leading him away.

The startling scenes were recorded by police officers in the city of Sao Vicente in the southeastern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo as they were searching for Adrian Jefferson Santos Silva Lima, 25, who had been wanted since September 2017 when he broke out of Penitentiary II of Sao Vicente.

Local media report officers had been looking for Lima in the Vila dos Pescadores area in the neighbouring city of Cubatao which forced him to flee the area and he put himself up in a motel.

In the video, an officer can be seen rolling under the shutter leading to Lima’s room and surprising him at the window, saying “police, police”.
