The alleged perpetrators of numerous splits in the slot rooms on the Piedmont motorway network were identified and arrested by the state police. Investigators of the Judicial Police Squad of the ‘Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta’ Traffic Police Department of Turin, coordinated by the local Public Prosecutor’s Office at the Court, carried out careful investigations in order to identify three men who are believed to have constituted a criminal group of real “split professionals”. In many cases, the targets of the group’s predatory behaviors were video poker machines and money changers. The perpetrators of the thefts did not limit themselves to stealing goods and money, but, in many cases, they devastated the premises, destroyed the shop windows, so as to cause considerable damage to the injured people. At least thirty blows have been attributed to the group in hypothesis of accusation. Various material of illicit origin seized and, in the homes of those arrested, clothes, clothing and personal effects worn during the splits were found. In addition, several vehicles were found and seized, all proceeds of theft, used for night raids, including the ‘Ford Kuga’ stolen about a year ago from a car showroom in Bra (Cuneo), along with 2 other cars. and 2 couples of tablets. After the validation of the arrests, for all members of the gang, the Gip ordered the precautionary measure of custody in prison.
