Undercover Fed Busts Major Bonanno Mob Ring In South Florida
An undercover FBI agent posing as a corrupt businessman infiltrated the Bonanno crew, which was run by Thomas Fiore, a non-member associate of the mob living in Boynton Beach, the indictment says.
The agent spent months with Fiore's crew as they ran a fraudulent check scheme, laundered money through foreign bank accounts, distributed oxycodone and other narcotics, sold loads of stolen plasma TVs and black market cigarettes.
Now eleven members of the crew are under federal indictment.
Here's the list:
- Thomas Fiore, 46, of Boynton Beach
- Pasquale Rubbo, 43, of Coral Springs
- Frank D'Amato, 48, of West Palm Beach
