Catholic priest arrested in Italy for drug dealing

A Catholic priest has been arrested in Italy on suspicion of dealing drugs at a party.
The clergyman, Stefano Maria Cavalletti, said he had taken to drugs because he was suffering from depression after being found guilty last year of defrauding an elderly woman of 22,000 euros.
Father Cavalletti, who despite last year's conviction is still a member of the priesthood, was allegedly selling cocaine at the party in Milan. 
The 45-year-old was arrested after neighbours complained about the noise from the late-night gathering and called the police.
He allegedly tried to flush the cocaine in his possession down a lavatory, and also attempted to tear up his passport, which he was carrying with him, so as not to be identified.
