ROME, June 27 (UPI) -- Police throughout Italy Thursday arrested 55 alleged members of the Camorra mafia, based in Naples, officials said.

The suspects were arrested throughout the country on charges of conspiracy, collusion, illegal gambling and betting, extortion, threats of violence, computer fraud, money laundering and fraud, Italy's ANSA news agency reported.

Police also seized more than $587 million worth of assets that included bank accounts, properties, businesses and automobiles.
