MILAN (AP) — An alleged mafia chief's appetite for pizza has cost him his freedom.

Police in Naples say they nabbed one of Italy's most-wanted crime bosses after sending an agent dressed as a pizza deliveryman to the door. The fugitive, Roberto Manganiello, was watching the Naples-Inter soccer match with his girlfriend when the operation took place this weekend in Caserta, near Naples.

Manganiello, 35, was unarmed and did not resist arrest. A fugitive since 2013, Manganiello was sought for two killings in 2004 that launched a clan feud. Police say he also ran a drug and extortion ring.

Interior Minister Angelino Alfano says Sunday the arrest was "the result of a high-level investigation" with coordination across several agencies.
