Padua, May 2 - Five Iranians have been arrested
after allegedly posing as police officers in order to rob
motorists in northern Italy.
Traffic police in the Veneto region arrested the men
Thursday after a high-speed chase, during which an officer was
injured.
Police said they recovered 10,500 euros and 10,000 Swiss
francs, in addition to Albanian driving licences, counterfeit
residency permits from Spain and four cars.
The band of thieves allegedly set up fake control points at
motorway service stations, where they would walk away with
tourists' documents and money under the pretext of checking
their authenticity.
Most of the victims were from Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan
and Turkey, police said.
The gang was based in the Lake Garda area and their arrest
was part of a wider investigation by traffic police in Padua,
Verona and Vicenza.
