    Rio de Janeiro's police found "monstrous material" pertaining to Nazism, including insignias, documents, uniforms, flags and even a membership card for the Nazi party featuring the suspect's photo. Images released by the police show that among the hundreds of items of Nazi memorabilia were several framed photos and busts of Adolf Hitler.
    Daggers and nine firearms were also found, including a rifle and a machine gun, as well as a large stash of ammunition.
    Linhares was charged with illegal possession of weapons, racism and pedophilia, after police also found photos of minors, Armond said.
    The man told police his collection was worth between 2.5 million and 3 million euros (between $2.9 and $3.5 million), "although that is unverifiable," the commissioner added.
    Police obtained a warrant to arrest the man and search his home after an investigation revealed that Linhares had also tried to abuse at least two other minors, Armond said.
