The paramilitary carabinieri made 13 arrests as they dismantled the medicine gang

Police in Italy have arrested a 46-year-old man suspected of utilizing his younger son to participate in drug trafficking within the far south-west.

The eight yr previous was talked into serving to the gang, believed to be led by his father, which confirmed a “felony lack of scruples” authorities stated.

The boy had been educated to inform the distinction between medicine being traded.

The paramilitary carabinieri police stated his father, recognized as Agostino Cambareri, was one among 13 individuals held.

The gang used a secret code primarily based on the world of vehicles and the eight yr previous was reportedly made conscious of all its actions by Mr Cambareri.

The suspects are alleged to have offered hashish and cocaine in cities throughout the south-western area of Calabria.

They don’t seem to be thought to have had shut ties to the infamous Calabrian mob, the ‘Ndrangheta.

Of the 13 individuals arrested, eight are in custody.
