Slovakia’s Most Wanted Arrested in San Pedro
A major international fugitive - and alleged Eastern European mafia boss has been caught in Belize. On Thursday, July 12, 2012, 42 year old Karol Mello a citizen of the Slovak Republic who is wanted by Interpol was arrested in San Pedro and taken to Belize City in handcuffs.
Mello who lived on North Ambergris Caye and reportedly was operating a business was apprehended by San Pedro Police on Pescador Drive after months of being sought in Belize. Mello is an alleged mafia boss and was wanted for setting up a double murder in 2004.
After successfully eluding arrest for six years, Polish special police forces arrested Mello in Krakow in October 2010 but he was released from custody last May by Slovak courts, reportedly due to procedural errors. Now he is being sought on a European and international arrest warrant.
The Slovak special prosecutor has also announced that he believes Mello was involved in the murder of the alleged boss of the Bratislava underworld. (Source: 7NewsBelize)
