I think a PIT maneuver on the tail would have worked just as well

Actually this plane was loaded with electronics coming in from Bolivia. Electronics are highly regulated in Brazil and are subjet to a 30 to 40% tariff when imported. So they get smuggled in.

Seems plausible. Who smuggles drugs INTO Brazil?

In 2010, I was flying my Mooney to Jamaica and was searched by the U.S. CBP (along with a drug dog) before DEPARTING Key West. I more or less asked the same question.

LOts of places without income tax run the country on consumption taxes, sort of 50 to 100% duty on goods brought into country. SO it makes great sense to pack a few TV's etc as its not as apt to get you shot as drugs, but its a big cash savings. One unnamed country i used to go to was rumoured that if you paid half of what would have been the tax, (ie a split sort of), the customs guy got half the tax , you saved half the tax , and the country got none....
if you tried to smuggle and got caught, the customs guy was a hero for catching you, and you went to jail. So the customs guys could hardly lose....
