May 18, 2012

Wink News on May 18, 2012 released the following:

“NAPLES, Fla.- Naples Police responded to a noise complaint on Thursday that led to the arrest of a wanted Serbian murder suspect.

On Thursday, at approximately 4:02 a.m., Naples Police officers were dispatched to a loud music complaint at 450 Bayfront Place, #4808. The officers were directed by the complainant to the unit where they were able to hear yelling and loud music. They spoke to the owner of the unit and after issuing her a notice to appear and advising her to turn down the music the officer left the building.

Five minutes after the initial encounter, the officers were advised by dispatch that the original complainant called back to advise that the subjects had turned up the music right after the officers left. The officers returned to the unit at which time after knocking on the door, it was answered and slammed in their faces. The officers knocked again and the door was answered, where the officers observed seven people in the unit.

Officers advised Mozolicova to step outside, so officers could affect an arrest for disorderly conduct and City Ordinance Violation 22-37 Noise Violation. Mozolicova refused to step outside of the unit, at which point officers attempted to take physical custody of Mozolicova inside of the unit.

Other subjects present attempted to interfere with the officers attempts to take her into custody. Miric pulled away from officers, and physically began fighting and hitting officers. Mozolicova attempted to distract officers and tried to physically grab Miric to pull her back into the unit.

Officers were able to affect an arrest on Miric, and Officer Harp stood by with the subject outside of the unit in a hallway area. Others present were interfering with the lawful attempts of the officers trying to arrest the subjects.

At one point, Stepanovich charged towards an officer who was kneeling down actively engaging in handcuffing one of the subjects and kicked the officer in the face. Stepanovich attempted to charge the officer again at which time the officer was able to deploy his Taser and stop the aggressive actions.

After all subjects were taken into custody, a routine wants and warrants check revealed that subject Stepanovich had an active INTERPOL warrant / wanted persons hit out of Serbia for the crime of Murder. INTERPOL warrant # KI46708. INTERPOL later advised they were going to begin to confirm the warrant and extradite with the requesting country.”

INTERPOL praises capture of mafia boss in Thailand

April 4, 2012

INTERPOL on April 1, 2012 released the following:

“Convicted Italian fugitive was subject of INTERPOL Red Notice requested by Italy

LYON, France – The detention in Bangkok of a man wanted in Italy for mafia-related criminal conspiracy and the subject of an INTERPOL Red Notice for internationally-wanted persons has been praised by INTERPOL Chief Ronald K. Noble as an example of effective international police cooperation.

Vito Roberto Palazzolo, aged 64, was stopped by the Royal Thai police on Friday 30 March at Bangkok airport. He was sentenced by a court in Italy in 2009 to nine years in jail for criminal association as a prominent member of the Cosa Nostra Sicilian mafia for whom he had been accused of laundering money from the proceeds of drug trafficking and cigarette smuggling, and for closely associating with the undisputed leaders of the criminal organization.

The convicted mafia fugitive was taken into custody at Bangkok airport by officers from Thailand’s Bureau of Immigration, working in collaboration with INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau (NCB) in Bangkok, as well as with the Foreign Affairs and Tourist Police divisions of the Royal Thai Police, with the assistance of INTERPOL’s liaison office in Bangkok.

INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support (FIS) unit at its General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon has been closely coordinating with INTERPOL’s NCB in Rome and its liaison office in Bangkok, in collaboration with Italian police services and case Prosecutor, as part of initiatives to locate Palazzolo in the Asian region where a previous travel entry by the fugitive was recently detected.

Secretary General Noble praised the authorities in Italy and Thailand for their continued commitment to cross-border law enforcement, which he said was exemplified by Palazzolo’s arrest.

“The capture of this convicted mafia fugitive highlights the very real and valuable results which can be achieved by INTERPOL member countries working together, especially when supported by INTERPOL global policing tools such as Red Notices,” said Secretary General Noble.

“Palazzolo’s arrest will I am sure encourage all INTERPOL member countries to renew their commitment to transnational police cooperation through the INTERPOL community, so that justice can run its course,” concluded Mr Noble.

A Red Notice represents one of INTERPOL’s most powerful tools in tracking international fugitives. Containing identification details and judicial information about a wanted person, a Red Notice seeks the location, the apprehension and the provisional arrest of a wanted person, and is circulated to police in all of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries.”
