The year 2017 began as 2016 ended for the mafia Marco Pizzi. His vehicle was burned in the parking lot of his home in Rivières-des-Prairies, in the night from Sunday to Monday. There were neighbors who called the police after hearing what appeared to be a blast, at 8625 Gouin Boulevard East. Upon arrival, the firefighters noticed a strong odor of accelerating emanating from the BMW's 46-year-old man. According to the SPVM, everything points to a fire arson. No collaboration It appears that the alleged trafficker offers very little cooperation to the police investigation. "When we asked him to provide us with the camera recordings from his home surveillance cameras, he said it was not working," a police source said. Marco Pizzi seems to be a key player in recent upheavals related to the Montreal mafia. Often targeted On August 1, he escaped a murder attempt that occurred in broad daylight in Montreal East. During the last four months, businesses or buildings belonging to him have been targeted by incendiaries. The arson occurred last December 14 . The Automobile Trade Plus business, located on Notre-Dame Street, had been targeted overnight.
