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 ’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 Wednesday’s raids.
