Montreal Mafia: Alessandro Sucapane can return home

Alessandro Sucapane, 54, former partner of the late rebel clan leader of the Montreal mafia Giuseppe de Vito, may leave the half-way house where he has been living for six months and return home.

The Parole Board of Canada considers that he has made a lot of progress and no longer poses a risk to society. She therefore grants him full parole.

For its part, an investigator from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told the Commission three months ago that Sucapane is no longer a subject of interest to the federal police and that it has reason to believe that he retired from the Montreal Mafia.

"You said you have been withdrawn since 2013 and others have taken your place. You now want to dedicate yourself to your job as manager, salesman and businessman, and make your family your priority. In addition, your friend's death and incarceration influenced your decision to stay away from the criminal scene, "commissioners wrote in a five-page decision on May 27.

Friend with Ponytail

In January 2015, Sucapane was sentenced to 10 years as a penitentiary for gangsterism, drug trafficking and cannabis production. He had been arrested the previous year as part of a major RCMP investigation called Clemenza. This investigation was aimed at emerging mafia clans attempting to take the place of the Rizzuto after they had been squashed during Operation Coliseum in November 2006.

Sucapane was the right arm of Giuseppe De Vito who, according to the police, was part of an alliance that attempted a coup against the clan of the Sicilians in 2010 and 2011. From Vito, aka Ponytail, because of this hair that he always wore a ponytail, died poisoned by cyanide which was poured into his smoothie, at Donnacona Penitentiary in 2013.

During his hearing before the commissioners last December, Sucapane told De Vito that he was a very good friend, but disassociated himself from the "political gestures" of the latter.

Sucapane also asserted that a contractor owed him a fairly large debt and this probably tickles the commissioners who took the trouble to include it in their decision. Sucapane is ready to reduce the amount of the debt, to settle the file, and the commissioners require that he discloses all its financial transactions, including the possible settlement of this financial dispute.

Sucapane will also have to avoid anyone whom he knows is involved in criminal activities and not to frequent the bars.

An individual whose trial is being held in Montreal reminisced, in spite of himself, of bad memories when the prosecution broadcast a recording of his spectacular arrest.

This one, carried out by the Tactical Intervention Group (GTI) of the Police Service of the City of Montreal (SPVM), took place on March 3, 2017.

It has the particularity of being recorded by a microphone that the police had installed in the car of the suspect, which gives a spectacular intervention as the public is rarely lucky enough to hear.

Period of tension

The accused, Vladimir Laguerre, 29, a resident of the borough of Rivière-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles, is on trial for a robbery robbery and possession of a weapon.

He was among five Mafia and gang-related individuals who were being tapped in an investigation called Fuel Oil and intended to elucidate the murder of Angelo D'Onofrio, an innocent client of Hillside Coffee, committed on June 2 2016.

The mafia was experiencing yet another moment of tension in 2016. The Mazout project was also intended to elucidate the murder of another individual, Ali Awada, committed in January 2017, according to court documents obtained by La Presse . No one has been charged for this crime.

In addition, the 1 st August 2016, after an attempted murder committed against the mafia probably Marco Pizzi, the police found that an individual had contacted Vladimir Laguerre. "He started to be of interest to us," said Detective Sergeant Gilles Gagné, of the SPVM's Major Crimes.

"Do you have your hood? "

The Major Crime Investigators and the SPVM Organized Crime Division obtained a listening authorization on February 23, 2017. On March 3, they heard on the Laguerre lines and an accomplice talk about "three kis", and the police concluded that the suspects were preparing to rob traffickers to seize 3 kg of cocaine.

"One of them asked," Do you have your hood? " They also said to bring a big, which means a large-caliber weapon, suggesting they were doing a drug burn, "said the prosecutor, M e Martin Joly, in its statement of opening.

On March 3, 2017, the investigators spotted the suspects and saw them scouting in the area of ​​French and Sainte-Claire Streets, in the Tétreaultville sector, in the east end of Montreal. They then decided to intervene.

"We knew the background of Vladimir Laguerre. He has already been arrested with a weapon. He stands with mafia people. In our charters, there are three kinds of risks: low, moderate and high. Laguerre is of a high degree of dangerousness, so the IWG was involved, "said Witness Gagné.

At the time of his arrest, Laguerre had in his belt a pistol with a charger - but no bullet was still chambered - and another charger full, apart.

He wants to exclude from the evidence

The trial, chaired by Justice Jean-Jacques Gagné, of the Court of Quebec, will continue next week. Laguerre, who is defended by M e Claude Olivier, challenges the legality of his arrest.

Laguerre made headlines in the fall of 2017 when he swallowed a cell phone mini-phone at the Rivière-des-Prairies Detention Center to hide him.

Two of the five individuals heard in the Fuel Project are Jeff Joubens Theus and Ebamba Ndutu Lufiau.

The first was convicted by a jury of the murder of Angelo D'Onofrio and sentenced to life imprisonment, while the trial of the second for the same charge is still ongoing.

A third individual, Antonio De Blasio, linked to the mafia, was murdered in a park in Saint-Léonard, under the eyes of his son, after a football training in August 2017.

Well its not a black thing, or an italian thing.
Its just different factions making deals with different groups in the montreal underworld.
You got haitians that support the Rizzuto’s, you got haitians that support those against Rizzuto’s.

Also, the italians put hits on people, and anybody can take the deal.

The beauty salon of a man known to police for his links with the mafia was destroyed by the flames

Recently opened, a beauty salon in Montreal, owned by a close couple of the late godfather of the mafia, was destroyed by arson Tuesday.

The call to 911 was made at 2:40 am by a passerby who saw the flames springing from the Avanti Le Spa store, located at the corner of Jean-Talon Street West and Décarie Boulevard, in the Côte-des-Monts neighborhood. -Neiges.

It took a little less than an hour for the twenty or so firefighters present to control the fire, said Matthew Griffith, head of the fire prevention section at the Montreal Fire Department.

The trade is not considered a total loss, but the very significant damage is valued at $ 225,000.

When the building was secured, the first firefighters to set foot inside did not take long to notice something was wrong.

Traces of flammable liquid were discovered, confirmed the Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM), to which the file was quickly transferred.

The criminal fire department of the SPVM has spent the scene combing for many hours on Tuesday, to go back to the culprit.

Images of security cameras installed on the scene were also viewed and could help investigators find the suspect.

The company Avanti The Spa belongs to Micheline Gallo, the wife of Antonio "Tony" Papa.

The branch of Jean-Talon West is the third and last of the banner and was inaugurated just two months ago.

The 71-year-old, well known in the Montreal business community, was, by his own admission, a close friend of the late Montreal Mafia godfather, Vito Rizzuto.

He was also very close to Moreno Gallo, an influential mafioso murdered in 2013 in Acapulco, Mexico.

According to our information, everything indicates that the fire was lit to send a message to the septuagenarian.

And this message, we can not be clearer.

The suspect at the origin of the fire was careful to spray several corners of the living room flammable liquid, presumably for the purpose that it is a total loss.

According to our sources, the investigators suspect that Tony Papa is probably the person targeted by this criminal act.

But they will have to determine the precise reason.

Without explanation

Contacted Tuesday by Le Journal , the Papa family says they have received no threat that could explain such a gesture and has no idea who could be behind the crime.

As the fire was lit in the middle of the night, the living room was closed and no one was injured.

The investigation is continuing and the police have not made any arrests for the moment.

[snip]

A LOADED PISTOL IS SEIZED FROM A MAFIOSO
A Laval mafioso who felt his life threatened by rivals has been convicted of unlawful possession of a loaded pistol.

Steve Casale, considered a lieutenant in the clan of influential mafia leader Vittorio Mirarchi and Caid Raynald Desjardins, conceded the verdict last week at the courthouse in Montreal.

The 40-year-old man, who would dip into illegal sports betting and loan sharking, according to a survey by the SPVM, should receive his sentence next month.

Armed bodyguards

Nicknamed "Cook" in the underworld, he was reported to Montreal police two years ago by an informant who claimed that Casale feared for his life and never moved without being accompanied by armed bodyguards.

On June 13, 2017, the SPVM carried out a search of his residence in Laval and seized a Beretta-branded, 22-gauge pistol.

The same evening, the police also arrested one of his bodyguards, Francesco Catalano, armed with a semi-automatic pistol as he was leaving a bar in Little Italy. The possession of this prohibited weapon earned him a 28-month sentence.

This same Catalano had already been accused in 2008 - then whitewashed - of having participated in a kidnapping with Mafia Salvatore Scoppa. He was murdered at a family party at a Laval hotel on May 4th.

According to court documents, Steve Casale was one of the wedding guests of Vittorio Mirarchi in 2009 in the Bahamas and the wedding of Raynald Desjardins' daughter at the Mirage Golf Club in Terrebonne in 2011. He did not criminal record.

Mirarchi was convicted of plotting the murder of aspiring sponsor Salvatore Montagna with Desjardins in 2011. He has been free for a year and a half. He would always be perceived as a potential sponsor of the Montreal mafia.

A friend would have invited him to go smoke to attract him outside the hotel, where a shooter was waiting patiently

The dreaded mafioso Salvatore Scoppa may have been betrayed by a member of his close guard, who invited him to smoke outside just before being the target of a shooter last month in Laval.

The thesis that the 49-year-old caïd was the victim of such a ruse, in the best tradition of settling scores of the Italian mafia, would be seriously considered by the police, according to sources from our Office of Investigation and of the Journal .

On the evening of May 4th, Sal Scoppa participated in a family party for the first communion of one of her children, at the Sheraton Hotel in Laval. Other receptions gathering a few hundred people were held simultaneously.

t was therefore necessary to bring out this dangerous mafia to facilitate the task of the armed killer.


At 10 pm sharp, Scoppa appeared in the hotel's porch to go smoke a cigarette with an employee he also considered a friend, according to our information.

At the same time, the shooter approached and fired at his target, caught by surprise, reaching it a first time, while ignoring "the friend" at his side.

While the latter remained at the entrance as if he were watching, the shooter entered the hotel chasing Scoppa to finish him off.


The murderer emptied two magazines, hitting the victim with several projectiles on the thorax and head before fleeing in a black Ford Explorer driven by an accomplice.

According to our sources, the "friend" in question gave contradictory versions to the police when they questioned him as an eyewitness to the murder.

Clan Rizzuto

In addition, our sources claim that this witness has already worked in the Rizzuto clan, which was at loggerheads with Scoppa.

In the summer of 2015, Stefano Sollecito, then acting head of the Montreal Mafia, was registered without his knowledge by the police saying that it was necessary to "put Salvatore Scoppa away from the street" because he he trusted him more.

Another organized crime leader told Sollecito that Scoppa deserved "a bullet in the chest."

On May 27, 2016, Rocco Sollecito, father of Stefano Sollecito and faithful ally of the late godfather Vito Rizzuto, was shot dead.

The killer, who knew the whereabouts of the victim, was waiting for her in a bus shelter in front of which she had to make a mandatory stop at the wheel of her SUV.

As Le Journal reported a month ago, Scoppa was considered by the police as the main suspect of this murder, as well as those of Lorenzo Giordano and Vincenzo Spagnolo, two other relatives of the Rizzuto clan killed the same year.

The Sûreté du Québec, which is investigating the murder of Scoppa, did not confirm or comment on our information. Nobody has been apprehended yet.

As revealed by Le Journal on May 15, the murder was unfortunate for the Hells Angels as the police took the opportunity to increase the pressure on all organized crime.

Laval police chief Pierre Brochet said the crime was "unacceptable" and that he was "lucky not to lose innocents".

WHO WAS SALVATORE SCOPPA
In 2008, he was sentenced to one year in prison for extortion after participating, with several accomplices, in the kidnapping of a mafia kid who owed him more than $ 200,000.
Before dying, in 2013, the godfather Vito Rizzuto invites the fiery Caid of Calabrian origin to better get along with other mafia leaders.
On September 20, 2015, he temporarily exiles himself to Mexico after being notified by the police that rivals had put murder contracts on his head.
On February 21, 2017, he was shot by a gunman in the parking lot of a restaurant in Terrebonne, an attempted murder of which the alleged hitman Frédérick Silva is currently accused.

Seems like Scoppa was ignoring the Mafia's politics and went over his head ordering the murders of made members while he probably was not. At the time it seemed the old Rizzuto allies were slaughtered one by one in another coordinated attack on their group while it may just have been a crazy man's act. If he was acting alone, he never had much of a change to begin with. He was a sort of Giuseppe De Vito 2.0. I think take-overs will only work when it's internal. This guy seemed like an outlier who thought he could go up against anyone while high on steroids. He probably did scare the hell out of these guys for some time.

Time will tell whether he was secretely backed by others but it wouldn't suprise me if he did do this just by himself. If he was supported, he was probably being used a la Caponigro.

Three alleged accomplices of Frederick Silva arrested

Three alleged accomplices of an individual whom the police consider a hitman, Frederick Silva, were arrested yesterday by investigators of the Major Crimes of the Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM).

The police force announced the arrest of three individuals this morning by way of press release, but did not give further details about the alleged acts. According to our information, the three men, or some of them, would have facilitated the Silva run, which lasted almost two years.

It is unclear whether the arrested suspects were released pending further investigation, or whether they will appear this afternoon at the courthouse in Montreal.

Silva was arrested last February by members of the SPVM's tactical intervention group (GTI) as he was walking a small dog near the condo where he was holed up in the Griffintown area near Old Montreal.

His run began in May 2017 when police suspected him of killing a client at a bar in downtown Montreal after an altercation.

Silva also reportedly tried to kill the mafioso Salvatore Scoppa in February 2017 in Terrebonne.

Frederick Silva is accused of both crimes, but also the murder of a 31-year-old Lavalman, Alessandro Vinci, in October 2018.

The police, however, suspect Silva of having committed a dozen murders, in particular that of Sebastien Beauchamp, a close friend of the bikers killed in broad daylight, in a busy crossroads of the district Saint-Leonard last December.

The investigation into the alleged crimes committed by Silva continues. It is led by the members of the Unsolved Major Crimes Section of the SPVM. Other arrests could follow.

A LOADED PISTOL IS SEIZED FROM A MAFIOSO
A Laval mafioso who felt his life threatened by rivals has been convicted of unlawful possession of a loaded pistol.

Steve Casale, considered a lieutenant in the clan of influential mafia leader Vittorio Mirarchi and Caid Raynald Desjardins, conceded the verdict last week at the courthouse in Montreal.

The 40-year-old man, who would dip into illegal sports betting and loan sharking, according to a survey by the SPVM, should receive his sentence next month.

Armed bodyguards

Nicknamed "Cook" in the underworld, he was reported to Montreal police two years ago by an informant who claimed that Casale feared for his life and never moved without being accompanied by armed bodyguards.

On June 13, 2017, the SPVM carried out a search of his residence in Laval and seized a Beretta-branded, 22-gauge pistol.

The same evening, the police also arrested one of his bodyguards, Francesco Catalano, armed with a semi-automatic pistol as he was leaving a bar in Little Italy. The possession of this prohibited weapon earned him a 28-month sentence.

This same Catalano had already been accused in 2008 - then whitewashed - of having participated in a kidnapping with Mafia Salvatore Scoppa. He was murdered at a family party at a Laval hotel on May 4th.

According to court documents, Steve Casale was one of the wedding guests of Vittorio Mirarchi in 2009 in the Bahamas and the wedding of Raynald Desjardins' daughter at the Mirage Golf Club in Terrebonne in 2011. He did not criminal record.

Mirarchi was convicted of plotting the murder of aspiring sponsor Salvatore Montagna with Desjardins in 2011. He has been free for a year and a half. He would always be perceived as a potential sponsor of the Montreal mafia.

Have either of you heard of Casale before? I've been following this thread for awhile and haven't seen his name come up.

Three alleged accomplices of Frederick Silva arrested

Three alleged accomplices of an individual whom the police consider a hitman, Frederick Silva, were arrested yesterday by investigators of the Major Crimes of the Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM).

The police force announced the arrest of three individuals this morning by way of press release, but did not give further details about the alleged acts. According to our information, the three men, or some of them, would have facilitated the Silva run, which lasted almost two years.

It is unclear whether the arrested suspects were released pending further investigation, or whether they will appear this afternoon at the courthouse in Montreal.

Silva was arrested last February by members of the SPVM's tactical intervention group (GTI) as he was walking a small dog near the condo where he was holed up in the Griffintown area near Old Montreal.

His run began in May 2017 when police suspected him of killing a client at a bar in downtown Montreal after an altercation.

Silva also reportedly tried to kill the mafioso Salvatore Scoppa in February 2017 in Terrebonne.

Frederick Silva is accused of both crimes, but also the murder of a 31-year-old Lavalman, Alessandro Vinci, in October 2018.

The police, however, suspect Silva of having committed a dozen murders, in particular that of Sebastien Beauchamp, a close friend of the bikers killed in broad daylight, in a busy crossroads of the district Saint-Leonard last December.

The investigation into the alleged crimes committed by Silva continues. It is led by the members of the Unsolved Major Crimes Section of the SPVM. Other arrests could follow.

If he was acting alone, he never had much of a change to begin with. He was a sort of Giuseppe De Vito 2.0. I think take-overs will only work when it's internal. This guy seemed like an outlier who thought he could go up against anyone while high on steroids. He probably did scare the hell out of these guys for some time.

Time will tell whether he was secretely backed by others but it wouldn't suprise me if he did do this just by himself. If he was supported, he was probably being used a la Caponigro.


Stefano Sollecito wanted him dead, so he had no other choice to take Rocco Sollecito out.

The beauty salon of a man known to police for his links with the mafia was destroyed by the flames

Recently opened, a beauty salon in Montreal, owned by a close couple of the late godfather of the mafia, was destroyed by arson Tuesday.

The call to 911 was made at 2:40 am by a passerby who saw the flames springing from the Avanti Le Spa store, located at the corner of Jean-Talon Street West and Décarie Boulevard, in the Côte-des-Monts neighborhood. -Neiges.

It took a little less than an hour for the twenty or so firefighters present to control the fire, said Matthew Griffith, head of the fire prevention section at the Montreal Fire Department.

The trade is not considered a total loss, but the very significant damage is valued at $ 225,000.

When the building was secured, the first firefighters to set foot inside did not take long to notice something was wrong.

Traces of flammable liquid were discovered, confirmed the Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM), to which the file was quickly transferred.

The criminal fire department of the SPVM has spent the scene combing for many hours on Tuesday, to go back to the culprit.

Images of security cameras installed on the scene were also viewed and could help investigators find the suspect.

The company Avanti The Spa belongs to Micheline Gallo, the wife of Antonio "Tony" Papa.

The branch of Jean-Talon West is the third and last of the banner and was inaugurated just two months ago.

The 71-year-old, well known in the Montreal business community, was, by his own admission, a close friend of the late Montreal Mafia godfather, Vito Rizzuto.

He was also very close to Moreno Gallo, an influential mafioso murdered in 2013 in Acapulco, Mexico.

According to our information, everything indicates that the fire was lit to send a message to the septuagenarian.

And this message, we can not be clearer.

The suspect at the origin of the fire was careful to spray several corners of the living room flammable liquid, presumably for the purpose that it is a total loss.

According to our sources, the investigators suspect that Tony Papa is probably the person targeted by this criminal act.

But they will have to determine the precise reason.

Without explanation

Contacted Tuesday by Le Journal , the Papa family says they have received no threat that could explain such a gesture and has no idea who could be behind the crime.

As the fire was lit in the middle of the night, the living room was closed and no one was injured.

The investigation is continuing and the police have not made any arrests for the moment.

- With the collaboration of Jean-François Cloutier and Félix Séguin, Investigation Office


It was believed Tony Papa was an informer.

Tony Accurso sued by his own lawyers

The fallen entrepreneur Tony Accurso faces a new lawsuit, this time by his own lawyers who claim $ 485,000 for unpaid fees.

"Since [last February], no payment of fees has been paid," laments the firm De Granpré Chait, in a civil suit made public Wednesday at the courthouse in Montreal, which targets both the former tycoon of construction and its former company Simard Beaudry Construction.

Since 2012, Accurso is entangled in several court cases. If he was acquitted of breach of trust for having helped the former Mayor of Mascouche Richard Marcotte, he was found guilty of taking part in the contract rebate system in Laval, with the former mayor Gilles Vaillancourt.


If he appealed the latter conviction, Accurso must still be tried in another case in Montreal where he is accused of plotting with a Canada Revenue Agency official.
e Granpré Chait is responsible for this file, according to the court document.

Pipeline
In the civil suit, the team of lawyers explained that they had been assured that Accurso and Simard Beaudry Cosntruction would pay certain costs in the case, where there are several accused.

"The fees would be borne by the defendants due to the fact that the work on the files benefited the defendants as part of their own judicial system," reads the court document.

In 2017, the law firm received a first payment of $ 40,000. Then, a few months later, another check for $ 271,000 was paid by Accurso. But since then, the tycoon of fallen construction no longer pays, he laments in the pursuit.

"The defendants have reiterated a few times that the payment [...] would take place upon receipt of proceeds from the sale of a pipeline in western Canada belonging to Simard Beaudry Construction," says the law firm.

However, despite this sale that would have occurred at the beginning of the year, Accurso would have paid nothing, despite several promises reassuring.

Faced with this situation, De Granpré Chait had no choice but to go to court.

Unless an amicable agreement is reached, the application will be presented shortly to a judge of the Superior Court of Quebec.

A wave of settlements linked to the dangerous Mexican drug cartels could hit Quebec and the rest of Canada.

This is the warning given to police by the Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) in a report on the current state of the narcotics market that Le Journal has obtained.

We learn that the murder of Montrealer Philipos Kollaros, shot in La Petite-Patrie last fall, was not an isolated act.

Kollaros was an ex-client of Sinaloa's cartel leader, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

"An abnormal number of high-level cocaine importers in Canada who have links to Mexican cartels ... have been recently killed in Mexico and Canada," reports the Royal Canadian Mounted Police agency.
CISC did not specify the exact number of victims.

In addition to this Quebecker, at least three drug traffickers from western Canada have been shot dead for 11 months while in Mexico.
This series of events suggests to the SCRC that Mexican cartels are "trying to eliminate competition" or restructuring their "operational cells in Canada" by getting rid of unwanted associates.
"If this is confirmed, we can expect an increase in violent incidents," warns the police agency that informs the country's law enforcement agencies.

CISC recalls that Mexican and Colombian cartels are responsible for "almost all cocaine" imported by Canadian organized crime.

The influence of Mexican cartels on Canada's drug market will not diminish, despite last winter's conviction of El Chapo for exporting more than $ 14 billion worth of drugs to the United States.

On the contrary, in addition to cocaine, "Mexican cartel officials are exporting more and more methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl to Canada," says SCRC.

Kollaros, who was killed in a café on Beaubien Street, had privileged contacts that enabled him to negotiate the importation of massive amounts of cocaine with the Sinaloa cartel, according to our Investigation Bureau.

He and his accomplices, however, had been the targets of major police operations and had seized several hundred pounds of drugs.
At the El Chapo trial in New York, it was learned that the latter also wanted to liquidate a Montreal associate real estate broker, Stephen Tello, who was suspected of stealing narcodollars from the cartel.

But Tello was arrested for importing drugs and sentenced to 15 years in Toronto in May 2018.

According to the article to which I've linked below, Domenico Agostino passed away one week ago today. Read the part of the article below the subheading "Projet Olios-Médian," as I suspect the online newspaper somehow mixed two stories together.

Thanks antimafia. Interesting article by Renaud. So Domenico suggested that NY ordered the murder of Sal Montagna?

The people of New York believe in the code. Not only did they kill a capo, but a capo of a large family, "wrote Agostino on November 28, 2011 to an individual named in the Clemenza investigation, Hansley Lee Joseph

I think you misinterpret. With "they" he meant whomever killed Montagna at the time and then he implies that the ones who did it would be in trouble because they killed a capo of a large family. It is interesting that he refers to Montagna as a capo, but perhaps he meant capo in the general sense.
