One of Brazil's most feared drug lords shocked police when they raided his Rio De Janeiro home - and found an entire room dedicated to teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.
During the raid on the home of suspect Luciano Martiniano da Silva - better known as Pizzou - officers found stacks of illegal drugs and piles of weapons.
But it was the room filled with memorabilia of the 16-year-old Somebody To Love star, that left them stunned.
The kingpin had installed a huge hand-painted mosaic of Bieber across one wall and plastered another with posters of the Canadian pop singer.
The mosaic features Bieber's face, with his signature haircut, as well as the words 'One Time' - the name of a song by the teen idol.
"I've never seen anything like it," said police spokesman Marcos Vinicius Braga after the raid in Rio.
More than 2,500 officers were involved in a number of raids on two of Rio’s most dangerous slums, including da Silva’s house.
According to local reports, Pizzou fled the mansion before the raid.
