“We confirm the arrest,” police told Reuters, replying to an email.

The arrest follows an indictment in the U.S. earlier this year on charges that included conspiring to rig diesel-powered vehicles to cheat on government emissions tests, one of the sources said.

A second source also said the arrest took place on Monday near the northern Italian city of Ferrara.

Stellantis was not immediately available for comment.
