Mbs.news A arsenal with lots of guns, rifles, machine guns and explosive. Weapons of war but also a cocaine stick, for over a kilo, stamped with the Freemasonry symbol. Perhaps a market where gangs they were supplied in case of need, a sort of "store of the offense". More likely, the signal that a Reggio Calabria something is happening in the dynamics of Ndrangheta after the arrests of last summer that hit the cosca Books and i process who, in recent years, have taken to prison the bosses of the most important mafia families. Some, though, They have gone outafter having served their sentence. Others are going to do it and demand more space in the territory.
The symptoms of tensions there are all between things and the seizures of weapons carried out in recent weeks prove it. The last is that of last Thursday in the area ofVia Sbarre Superiori, a district south of Reggio, where, as part of a "traditional" investigation, the finance guard has searched i garage of a condominium. In one of these the colonel's men Flavio Urbani, of the major Giovanni Andriani and the captain Flavia Ndriollari they have found over 2 and a half pounds of explosive, one kilo and 100 grams of cocaine, two machine guns, 6 shotguns, a shotgun barreled, 4 semi-automatic guns, a special 38 caliber drum pistol, two shotgun chokes and over 500 cartridges.
Everything was hidden on a wooden platform which was a crafted mezzanine. As reported by the Gazzetta del Sud, inside the garage were also found numerous T‑shirts and sweatshirts with lo arms and the name of a football team, the "A.S.D. San Giorgio”, which plays in Promotion in Reggio Calabria. But also a t‑shirt Inter with the number "10" and the writing "Tullio". In addition, there were cocaine residues and packaging packaging for the clothing.
In flagrante delicto he was arrested Giovanni D’Ascola, 31 years old. It was he who had the availability of the garage owned by a subject, a foreign result, who had rented it for him. In reality it is precisely the figure of the arrested that pushes the investigators to believe that behind the "santabarbara" seized in via Sbarre Superiori there are exponents of organized crime. Already stopped in 2007 because found in possession of some doses of narcotic substance, in fact, D’Ascola is related to i boss Borghetto, historically federated to cosca Books and today, perhaps, willing to carve out a space more important in the mafia environments of Reggio. This is also thanks to the relationships that they have made both with most influential families of the city, both with the criminal groups used, over the years, as laborers. If so, to the tensions that have been registering for some time in the area ofGallico(northern suburb of Reggio), would be added those of the Modena-Ciccarello district territory of the Borghetto-Zindato.
The potential of the seized arsenal would suggest that On Ascola have had gods accomplices remained on the loose. According to investigators, there is no doubt that he rented the garage. Certainly, however, he does not have the criminal depth to act alone. That's why the Reggio Calabria prosecutor Giovanni Bombardieri and the replacement of the Dda Walter Ignazitto are investigating to see if D’Ascola is one of the owners of the ‘ndrangheta or just thewooden head"Used by those who are able to use those weapons. Also the writing "Tullio" printed in the T‑shirt number 10 of Inter refers to first name of some members of the Borghetto family, many of whom passionate of football and involved in recent investigations against the ndrangheta.
Subsequent investigations will provide prosecutors with new elements on the hypothesis that someone, on the banks of the Strait, is ready to striking gestures. It remains to understand what machine guns and pistols were for. But above all the beyond two kilos of dynamite gelatin, based on nitroglycerin, at very high potential. It is a particularly sensitive explosive which, after sampling, was destroyed by the finance guard because, when it decomposed, it would become highly unstable. If correctly assembled to the slow-burning fuse and to the detonator seized inside the garage, the things could have used it for the realization of a so-called I.E.D. (Improvised Explosive Device), a bomb with very high offensive capabilities. In other words: ordnance that, if they explode, in Reggio Calabria they could cause damage greater than anti-tank mines that are used in war.
