Police arrest couple in their 70s for trafficking heroin (ANSA) - Manfredonia (Foggia), February 18 - An elderly man and his wife were arrested Tuesday on charges of trafficking drugs in southern Italy.

Police said they seized more than 70 grams of heroin, partly divided into 42 doses, as well as packing materials for selling drugs in small amounts, 700 euros and a cell phone still in its package which police think was traded for drugs.

Police became suspicious when they saw increased activity around the home of Michele Cotrufo and Rosina Troiano.
