Dutch man wanted for bank fraud arrested in Italy
Italian police have arrested a 49-year-old Dutch man suspected of fraud and forgery of documents that duped a Dutch bank for more than two tons. According to Italian media, the man was arrested in Sicily, where he lived for some time.
The Dutch authorities had issued a European arrest warrant against the suspect for the fraud he allegedly committed between 2019 and 2021 through falsifying documents. The Italian police then discovered that the man had lived for a while in Alcamo in western Sicily.
It then did not take much effort to track down the suspect's off-road vehicle, which had a Dutch registration number. The man was arrested when he was about to get into the car in Trapani and has been detained in prison in the Sicilian town.
