Italian police have busted 90 suspected mobsters from the Contini clan of the Camorra or Neapolitan Mafia as reported by ANSA.
The Contini clan allegedly is involved with laundering dirty money through legitimate businesses and other investments, and authorities also seized 250 million euros ($339 million) in assets.
Among the businesses seized were "a number of bars and pizzerias believed to have been run by the Contini clan" in Rome including "a popular restaurant just around the corner from the parliament buildings" as reported by BBC News.
Italy's southern-based Mafia groups such as the Camorra in Naples and the 'Ndrangheta in Calabria increasingly are infiltrating the wealthier northern cities inluding Rome, Florence and Milan in order to launder and otherwise invest the illicit proceeds from their drug trade and other rackets.
One arrest target wasn't going to let the coppers take him alive. Businessman Giuseppe Cristarelli "jumped more than 100ft to his death after police arrived to arrest him" as reported by Sky News: "officers said Cristarelli calmly asked for a glass of water, before then running through the fourth-floor apartment, opening a window and leaping more than 100ft to his death in front of his horrified wife."
