A MEMBER of the Neapolitan Camorra, Salvatore D’Avino, was caught after his wife uploaded a photo of him to Facebook. D’Avino, 39, considered one of Italy’s most dangerous fugitives, was arrested at a petrol station in Estepona following an investigation involving the Spanish and Italian police.
Apparently, the photo showed him in a restaurant in Las Chapas, which the Italian police initially identified as being in Spain thanks to it showing a national symbol.
Police first located his wife, who they followed for several days until they were able to catch D’Avino who had two European arrest warrants against him for hashish trafficking between Morocco and Italy.
He had been living in Morocco and had spent a few days on the Costa del Sol where his wife had come to give birth. When he was caught, he was planning to head back to Morocco.
