Tiago silva dos santos Who became known worldwide in 2019 for his resemblance to Paris Saint Germain player Neymar Jr is in trouble with the Brazilian police. And it is that dos Santos is accused of cargo theft in a municipality of the state of Sao Paulo.
According to O Globo, the Military Police Operations Center (COPOM) was informed that a group of people they hid in the bushes and unloaded a stolen load from a vehicle. An operation was quickly carried out in the Itaquaquecetuba area, where two men were detained and some things worth 2,000 reais ($ 351) were found.
One of those men was Tiago Silva, a mason assistant who went viral after a person took a photo with him and compared him to the Brazilian ’10’. In fact, that resemblance could be one of the causes for the victims to have identified it as one of the perpetrators of the crime, which has contributed to his subsequent arrest.
The family of the ‘double of Neymar’ have denied any involvement in the events and affirmed that “he was in the wrong place at the wrong time”, since it is very close to where he lives. His testimony and his statements have not prevented Silva dos Santos from being sent along with Alessandro Luís da Silva to the Suzano Temporary Detention Center (CDP), on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.
