That low-profile bit…violating that commandment of being on the run seems to be what cost one mafia fugitive his freedom. Marc Feren Claude Biart from the southern part of Italy was found thanks to his wife’s cooking show that appears on YouTube.
The alleged gangster’s “love for Italian cuisine” — and tattoo ink — made his arrest possible, police said.
Though he carefully hid his face, Biart failed to disguise his distinctive body tattoos, they added.
And people wonder why some of us choose to be uninked.
Police said they believe Biart is a member of the notorious ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate — one of the most feared and powerful in Europe — from the Calabria region at the toe of southern Italy’s boot-shaped peninsula.
He had been wanted for allegedly trafficking cocaine from the Netherlands since 2014, police said…
Biart’s arrest marks a breakthrough for the international effort led by Interpol and multiple European police forces to bring down organized crime. Known as “Interpol Cooperation Against ‘Ndrangheta,’ the initiative launched last year is tasked with disrupting the mafia gang’s global network, which Interpol says is present “on every world continent.”
Another ‘Ndrangheta mafia member was arrested in Portugal on Monday, police said. Francesco Pelle, who had been on the run for 14 years, was found at a clinic in Lisbon where he was receiving Covid-19 treatment.
It looks like international sleuths are making a concerted effort to find these people.
