Fourteen arrested for drug smuggling from Caribbean

Probe uncovers alleged network of Dominican runners

(ANSA) - Rome, May 15 - Police in the northern city of Asti arrested 14 people Thursday on suspicion of international drug trafficking from the Caribbean to Italy.
    The arrests were made after a probe beginning in 2012 uncovered a network of suspected drug runners, mostly Dominican nationals living in Italy.
    Investigators reportedly also identified the alleged suppliers, complicit police officers in the Dominican Republic and recipients of the drugs in the Piedmont city and other parts of Italy.
