Discovered in Rome, in Fiumicino airport, the tobacconist who had fled yesterday with a scratch card worth 500 thousand euros in the Materdei district in Naples, stealing it from an elderly customer. He was fleeing to the Canary Islands, specifically to Fuerteventura.
The carabinieri of Naples had reported the man who had escaped with the 500 thousand euro scratch card for theft. As soon as the complaint was received, the military carried out searches for the entire European territory, including the borders. When he showed up at Fiumicino airport with a plane ticket to Fuerteventura, ready to leave Italy, the Border Police detected the alert on his identity and blocked him.
Contacted the soldiers of the Stella company, the man was identified and reported on the loose. He did not have the winning coupon with him and therefore the investigations to find it continue.
The attempt to leave the tobacconist for Fuerteventura, Canary Island, took place late yesterday evening. At the expense of the man – GS, 57, with a clean record – there are no restrictive measures, so the tobacconist is free to go wherever he wants and in theory, after being reported for theft, he could still leave the country. The carabinieri of the Stella company are continuing their investigations into the case, as well as the search for the stolen Scratch and Win. Following the whole affair, the man could suffer the revocation of his license by the Customs and Monopolies Agency.
