The Bulgarian national arrested by the police in the Italian city of Milan has been identified as Lachezar Angelov, 25, from the western town of Dupnitsa.

The news was reported by a number of Bulgarian media Thursday afternoon, including bTV, thus refuting earlier reports that the detainee is one of Interpol-wanted convicted Bulgarian mobsters Angel Hristov or Plamen Galev, better known as the Galevi brothers.

Angelov also has an Interpol warrant. He has a criminal record for theft.

Meanwhile, the Interior Ministry confirmed officially that the detainee has nothing to do with Galevi brothers. He has been under a search warrant on the request of the Court in the western city of Kyustendil.

Angelov lived in Milan in the last 18 years. He took part time construction jobs and is suspected in a number of petty robberies.

The profiles of the notorious mobster pair are still on the Interpol site.
