Naples cops nab eight for selling tickets to post office

Seize 28.50 euros in 'ill-gotten gain'

(ANSA) - Naples, March 4 - Carabinieri police on Wednesday nabbed eight suspects and seized 28.50 euros in what they said were ill-gotten gains at post offices in four Naples neighborhoods.
    The suspects allegedly sold numbered tickets to people so they could jump the lines, which are notoriously long in Italian post offices. The suspects were caught red-handed during patrols on the day pensions are paid out, when the elderly are often targeted by robbers on their way out of the post office.
