A thirty-year-old drug dealer, of North African origin, died today in Valtellina by jumping into a cliff to escape the carabinieri. The men of the Arma had entered a wood, a well-known drug store, to arrest a 28-year-old Moroccan from the Milanese hinterland and hit by an arrest warrant from the Sondrio Court. The accomplice, after witnessing the scene, took to flight fearing that he too would end up in handcuffs. After a few tens of meters, however, it fell into the void, smashing itself on the asphalt of the provincial road number 11 of the Valtartano invaded, as every weekend, by hundreds of cars of tourists heading for the attraction of the “Ponte nel Cielo” in the Campo district .

In the end the tally of the blitz counts a North African in his 30 years dead and another in prison, while a vast search for a third foreign drug dealer has long continued. To intensify the searches, the helicopter of the Arma da Orio al Serio (Bergamo) also took off and the dogs of the Sagf (Alpine Rescue) of the Guardia di Finanza took part in the research, which were unsuccessful . It was therefore a busy afternoon that today on the border between three municipalities – Talamona, Forcola and Tartano – in Valtellina. The investigation by the carabinieri of the Compagnia di Sondrio operational and radio mobile unit had been underway for some time, as a thriving drug dealing activity managed by North Africans from the Milanese hinterland had been established close to the bush. It is not known at the moment whether an autopsy will be arranged on the deceased man. “It will be the magistrate Marialina Contaldo to evaluate the need or not to do the autopsy – said the lieutenant colonel Rocco Taurasi at the head of the operational department, on the spot with the provincial commander Emanuele De Ciuceis -. For us, the dynamic is clear. The fugitive fell off the cliff during the chase. Maybe he misjudged the jump he had to make: it was not a few meters, but many more ». After the tragedy and the arrest of one of the criminals, as mentioned, an imposing manhunt took place. But there is no certainty that, at the time of the blitz, there were really other members of the gang of drug dealers in the woods.
