BOSCOREALE, Italy, March 29 (UPI) -- Italian police said they found a bust of actor Al Pacino as his character from the 1983 film "Scarface" in the home of an accused mafia drug lord.

Police said Carlo Padovani, 34, who was arrested on suspicion of leading a large drug distribution operation in Boscoreale, near Naples, had a bust of Pacino as fictional Cuban drug kingpin Tony Montana in his home, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

Investigators said they arrested more than 30 people with ties to Padovani's alleged operation, which police said used children as young as 6 years as lookouts for drug pushers.

Prosecutors said Padovani and his alleged accomplices are believed to be connected to three clans from the Camorra mafia, which allegedly operates in the Naples area.
