Italian police on Saturday arrested a pair of  reputed ‘Ndangheta  mafia enforcers for running a shakedown scheme  involving  the owner of a construction company in the capital city of Catanzaro

Francesco Procopio, 27, and Teodoro Notaro, 23, were dragged away in handcuffs on charges of attempted extortion by mafia methods

According to police,  the two mafia toughs attempted to collect protection money known as ‘pizzo” from the victim, the owner of a villa building business,  who  was especially afraid of the violent  reputation of  Francesco Procopio, the double tough  son of ‘Ndangheta  boss Fiorito Procopio, currently in prison, considered among the elders of the clan Procopio-Lentini based in Soverato
