Parma, July 11 - A wanted Dominican drug trafficker
has been arrested in Italy where he was playing professional
baseball under a false identity.
Eriberto Jimenez Melo, 35, was arrested in the northern
city of Parma where he played third base for the Serie A Farma
Crocetta team under the false identity of Marco Cesar Da Silva
Frejtas.
Fleeing a 25-year cocaine-smuggling sentence in Britain
since 2008, Jimenez Melo made his way to Italy with a false
Portuguese passport one year ago when he caught the attention of
Parma coaches with his exceptional slugging ability.
In the spring managers said he left the team for what he
described as family problems in Spain.
In reality he stayed in Parma where police raided his home
in May.
News of his arrest was kept under wraps until his
extradition to Britain.
