Elsa Lila, a renowned Albanian singer, is now behind bars following a police crackdown on an organized drug ring in Italy.

La Repubblica reports that Lila was amongst 9 other Albanian and Italian citizens who were placed under arrest this morning in the capital city of Rome.

Along with the 40-year-old, renowned Albanian boxer – Petrit Bardhi – also known as Titi, has also been arrested.

According to Italian anti-mafia investigators, the Italo-Albanian group, was involved in different kinds of drug deals in the capital city.

Another member of the group based in Acilia, according to the Italian press, was Arben Zogu – an infamous mafioso who is well known by Italian law enforcement.

To camouflage their illegal activities, the group had put up a front as a company distributing electronic devices for gambling parlors.
