#Perth man Domenico Condo arrested in European mafia crackdown ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ More Below;

A Perth man has been arrested as part of a mass mafia crackdown across Europe.

Police across the continent have arrested at least 84 suspected mobsters and seized around 2 million euros ($A3.1 million) in co-ordinated raids targeting a powerful branch of the Italian mafia on Wednesday.

Domenico Condo – who was born in Mt Lawley – is among those arrested.

Mr Condo is also the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant from WA Police.

The 38-year-old was arrested in Germany allegedly with a quantity of drugs.

The raids in Germany, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands are the culmination of an investigation codenamed Pollino that was launched in 2016 against the โ€™ndrangheta criminal group on allegations of cocaine trafficking, money laundering, bribery and violence.

The operation was co-ordinated by Eurojust, the European prosecution agency that fights cross-border organised crime.

Eurojust said the massive operation was the biggest of its kind in Europe.

Four tonnes of cocaine were traced during the two-year joint investigation, while cocaine and ecstasy pills were seized in Wednesdayโ€™s raids.
