Police have arrested Camorra boss Marco Di Lauro — one of the most-wanted criminals in Italy. "Unusual activity" led authorities to his apartment, where he was found eating pasta and expressed concern for his cats.
After more than 14 years on the run, Italian authorities arrested top mafia boss Marco Di Lauro on Saturday, nabbing one of the heads of the Camorra organized crime syndicate.
In an operation involving 150 officers, police arrested Di Lauro at an apartment in the Chiaiano district of the southern city of Naples.
The 38-year-old, who was found sitting with his two cats and eating pasta when authorities arrived, did not resist. He reportedly voiced concern over the fate of his cats before being taken away
Police said that "unusual activity" tipped them off to Di Lauro's location. Italian media reported that the arrest was connected to a murder that happened earlier on Saturday that was carried out by a man linked to Di Lauro.
