Fugitive ‘Ndrangheta Mafia boss Damiano Gallace (photo above shows him in his younger years) was caught on Thursday in a secret bunker inside a flat in a cement factory in the town of Isca sullo Ionio in Calabria.
The mob boss had been on the run for just a year, relatively short when compared to other fugitive Mafiosi, after being sentenced to 14 years for various crimes.
Video of the arrest:
The bunker was hidden behind a false bedroom wall. The only way to open it was by turning a secret handle in a cupboard.
60-year-old Gallace was found living there with his 34-year-old partner and their 4-year-old daughter.
Bunkers inside or underneath flats, houses, and even caves are a common tactic used by Mafia bosses throughout Italy – from Sicilian Cosa Nostra and the Camorra in Campania to the ‘Ndrangheta in Calabria – to evade capture by authorities.
