One of the leaders of the Neapolitan Camorra, Luigi Cacchapuoti, 64, was arrested the day before in the small town of Varcaturo by pure chance and the attention of the police officers who were patrolling the area. The operation to capture the mobster, sentenced in absentia to 15 years in prison, has been underway since February of this year, but he managed to escape from the hands of law enforcement with enviable regularity.

In June, thanks to monitoring the members of the “clan” on social networks and their financial transactions, the police managed to establish the approximate location of the leader of the criminal cell. The photographs revealed that Kacchapuoti was hiding in the field with an unidentified woman and a small white poodle. Of course, this information was clearly not enough to capture him, but the other day the patrol noticed on the balcony of the second floor of one of the villas, which was currently considered uninhabited due to repair work, clearly a domestic dog. The police reported this to the Carabinieri police station, where they linked this fact with the orientation received by Luigi.

After analyzing all possible escape routes, including the city sewer, the military visited a suspicious cabin. During the raid, the wanted mobster was found lounging on a poolside lounger and flipping through a newspaper. Adding to the curiosity of the situation was the fact that it was opened on the Camorra news page, which also showed a photograph of Kachchapuoti himself. At the same time, the reason for the evasion of the dangerous criminal was also discovered: the agents found in his “refuge” a set of wigs and false documents with different names.

Since the woman who was in his company was also arrested for helping the mob, the poodle, which inadvertently became the main evidence, was forced to send it to a dog shelter, where they promised to find new owners for it.” four-legged informer”. “.

It should be noted that this is not the first case in which the leaders of criminal clans in Italy, despite unprecedented conspiracy measures, are betrayed by their daily habits or by pure chance. Thus, the recently arrested boss of Cosa Nostra, Matteo Denaro, was found out because, not wanting to change traditions, he continued to be treated for a long time in a private clinic that he knew, albeit under another name.

But even so, the laurels in the game of hide-and-seek with the police rightly belong to Michele Zagaria, the last of the leaders of the Casalesi house. In 2011, after 16 years of searching, the gangster was discovered in a bunker five meters deep, equipped with CCTV cameras for the neighboring streets and an air regeneration system. The entrance to the shelter was located under the bathroom floor of a small, purpose-built villa. In addition, to “cover” it, it was periodically rented to unsuspecting townspeople for days. According to rumors, it was one of these “fictitious guests” who noticed footprints in the cabin’s backyard, prompting the police to take a closer look at the structure.
