The carabinieri and the state police carried out numerous house searches in the Tor Bella Monaca district. The operation, taken at dawn, represents in particular a response by the state to the serious bloody events that took place in the neighborhood last week, when two men were shot and wounded.
The searches and arrests
During the blitz, the Carabinieri of the Frascati Group and of the Tor Bella Monaca Station together with the canine units and the Carabinieri helicopter grouping, carried out 15 searches against various persons of operational interest in the area. Three other people were reported to the Prefecture for the possession of narcotics for personal use. The activity was also extended to an in-depth control of the common areas, usually used as logistical bases by the shopping plazas, such as cellars, cellars and lift shafts. During the activity, which involved the use of over 150 operators of the local Mobile Squad of Rome, the Mobile I Department, the Crime Prevention Department and the Canine Unit, the State Police carried out 15 house searches and checked several cellars and garages, usually used as drug storage places. Furthermore, 3 blocks of hashish-type narcotic substance were found, well hidden inside an elevator of a stable site in via dell’Archeologia, for a total weight of 283 grams.
During the checks, a man found in possession of about 150 g of cocaine, packaged in 271 single doses, ready for retail sale on the drug market, was arrested. Another subject, convicted for drug offenses, was arrested because he was found in possession of some doses of cocaine, as well as 170 euros, divided into small banknotes, as proceeds from the dealing activity.
