A fugitive mafia boss, aged 21, was arrested Tuesday. He is youngest of the 100 most wanted fugitives in Italy.

Mario Riccio was held in Naples. Apprehended in a villa on the outskirts of the city while he was with his wife and daughter, he did not resist police, Xinhua reported.

Riccio, who was sentenced to 16 years in jail for mafia association and drug trafficking, had been on the run since 2011.

He is the alleged head of an influential clan as well as the relative of another important boss of Camorra, the Naples-based mafia which has spread towards other Italian cities in recent years.
