His cover ended up being fatal. A drug trafficker has been arrested by the carabinieri in Genoa (Italy) after the police noticed the frequent comings and goings of bald customers in his establishment, which was... a hair salon, the Italian daily La Repubblica revealed on Friday.

After noticing the large number of bald people who came to the vicinity of the establishment and who immediately came out, the Italian carabinieri set up a reinforced surveillance of the place. "It emerged that some customers went to the hairdresser only for the purpose of buying drugs, while others, in addition to the haircut, also asked to buy one or more doses," explains the Italian channel Sky TG24.

Cocaine and Precision Scales in the Attic

The 55-year-old man, an Italian national, was arrested and his home searched. At the scene, investigators found several grams of hashish. Also found in the hair salon, hidden in an attic, were 100g of cocaine, four precision scales and equipment used for packaging drugs. The man was incarcerated in Marassi prison, in the hinterland of Genoa.

The Italian police are regularly called upon to organise the dismantling of drug trafficking. A gigantic international operation was carried out against the Calabrian mafia, the dreaded 'Ndrangheta, in early May, resulting in 132 arrests in ten countries including Italy, Germany and France.

In total, more than 2,700 police officers were mobilized and 150 searches were conducted. The investigation, launched more than three years ago at the European level, had been able to attribute to the 'Ndrangheta the importation and trafficking of nearly 25 tons of cocaine, for the period from October 2019 to January 2022. It also confirmed significant flows of drugs between South America and Europe, notably managed by the San Luca clan in Calabria, the tip of Italy's boot.
