46 arrested in Camorra multi-clan drug-trafficking blitz


Naples, July 16 - Forty-six people were arrested
Monday night in a blitz against five clans of the Camorra
organized crime group in the southern Italian region of
Campania, where Naples is located.
Carabinieri police rounded up suspected members of the
Castaldo, Lo Russo, Gallo-Cavalieri and Annuziata clans, which
operate in Naples, as well as alleged members of the Pecoraro
clan, present in Salerno and Battipaglia.
A Naples prosecutor has charged the suspects with drug
pushing, illegal use of arms, money laundering, and fraudulent
transfer of assets.
Over the course of the investigation, which took place over
several months, police seized 44 kilos of cocaine and also
arrested 14 drug runners.
Police also confiscated roughly a million euros, between
cash and bank deposits.
Investigators say the five clans imported drugs from Spain
and South America to furnish street dealers in Campania and in
other locations in Italy, sometimes through the commercial port
of Salerno.
Suspects were also arrested in Spain with the assistance of
the national drug and organized crime police UDYCO in Madrid.
