A suspected member of a Mafia-style criminal organization in Italy handed out hundreds of mobile phones in an attempt to help his daughter win a TV talent show.
Domenico Ferrara, 56, was arrested over his alleged involvement with the Camorra network, which operates in the Naples region.
Around 300 phones were discovered at his home, all of which had been used to text into Ti Lascio Una Canzone (Leaving You a Song).
Ferrara's 13-year-old daughter was a contestant on the show and eventually finished in second place.
The BBC reports that Ferrara, who is accused of drug smuggling, was keen to launch his daughter's music career.
Police believe he handed out the phones in the local area with instructions on how they should be used. They were collected and returned to him to check the record of sent texts.
It is unclear whether Ferrara's actions affected the outcome of the competition, since viewers are allowed to vote as many times as they like.
