Italian police on Friday in the Sicilian city of Catania arrested two  reputed  high- ranking members of a mafia driven drug trafficking organization who had recently escaped house arrest to avoid serving harsh sentences

The two fugitives , Giovanni and Filippo Crisafulli,  had been placed under house arrest while they  appealed convictions for organized crime connected drug trafficking. Both men fled  following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold their convictions

The two are top level leaders of a mafia powered drug organization who had been arrested by police on 21 January 2014, in operation “Colombia”, in which  48 people  were held responsible for  trafficking in cocaine and marijuana

Police said they arrested the two fugitives  inside of a house in Catania,
