Jonathan Sunstrum 'Mr. Bubbles' = 17 years

Citing the tragic consequences of fentanyl on society, a Calgary judge handed former city mayoral candidate Jonathan Sunstrum a 17-year prison term. The judge said the potential profit margins in fentanyl trafficking made harsh sentences an absolute necessity to deter potential wholesalers. The case involved a kilogram of 82% pure fentanyl, which an expert report said could have created 410,000 single two-milligram doses with a street value of $20m. Two milligrams is still a potentially deadly amount.
Sunstrum, 60, was the right-hand man to the head of the ring.
In July cops busted a fentanyl 'superlab' in Alberta. 13.6 kg of fentanyl, 11.9 kg of late-stage precursors 4-ANPP, 6.6 kg of synthetic opioids, 9.9 kg of methamphetamine, 50 litres of gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid and 7,600 kg of chemicals were seized. Project Essence began with a tip of importation of 563 kg of precursors.

“One code I respect - gangster” Labar 'Bro Man' Spann

Chigago Four Corner Hustlers gang leader Labar 'Bro Man' Spann was being cross-examined by prosecutors in his trial on racketeering charges alleging he conspired to commit six gangland murders from 2000 to 2003. He calls himself old-school, a leader, a person other like-minded gangsters turned to and treated with respect. But what he isn’t, according to him, is a murderer. Spann repeatedly swore and shouted as he denied involvement in the slayings in the indictment, including the infamous 2003 contract killing of Latin Kings boss Rudy “Kato” Rangel.
Martise Nunnery told jurors he helped carry out the hit on Rangel, which served as the inspiration for rapper DMX’s hit “A ‘Yo Kato.” Nunnery said he, Spann and the gunman, Donell “Squeaky” Simmons were hired by the Conservative Vice Lords to carry out the hit for a six-figure payout.

Joe Amato Sr off to jail, Jr to follow

Joseph Amato Jr. and Joseph Amato Sr.
Joseph Amato Sr., 62, who earlier this year pleaded guilty to shaking down two and stalking his girlfriend with a GPS tracking device, was given little sympathy by a federal judge, who called the defendant’s attributes “almost as bad as they can possibly be.” It's nearly 6 years in the slammer for the wiseguy. Jr gets sentenced later this month.

Joey Amato, 62.
The New York City bus system had a problem when mechanics found a GPS tracker during maintenance in Nov 2016. The Staten Island depot was evacuated and explosives experts were called in to make sure it wasn’t a small bomb. The undercarriage of every bus in the five boroughs was searched using mirrors on metal poles. The tracker came from an unlikely source, Colombo capo Joseph Amato Sr. who had reported it lost. Amato had been keeping tabs on his girlfriend by secretly sticking the GPS on her car. The capo and his son took a pair of plea deals in the case that netted nearly a dozen other Colombo mobsters and associates.
Amato pleaded guilty to racketeering and stalking. He is expected to be sentenced to five to seven years, avoiding a 20 year stretch.
Soldiers Philip Lombardo and Dominick Ricigliano were charged.The capo sent the woman emails bragging about his influence on Staten Island. One said, “This is my island. Not yours. I have the eyes all over.” In another, Amato — who in 1995 was convicted in the shooting of a 15-year-old witness, boasted that “I’m called a MAN’S MAN!!!” Events eventually snared 20 — including 11 members and associates of the Colombo crime family. They were busted on charges including racketeering, loansharking and extortion. Wiretaps on the phones of Amato, his son Joseph Amato Jr. and Colombo soldier Thomas Scorcia resulted in “thousands of intercepted phone calls and text messages.”Joseph Amato Jr.

Ruja Ignatova - the 'Ponzi Queen'

Ruja Ignatova called herself the Cryptoqueen.
Ruja Ignatova is a Bulgarian convicted fraudster. She is best known as the founder of Ponzi scheme OneCoin in 2014, described as "one of the biggest scams in history". She has been on the run since 2017. In early 2019 she was charged in absentia by U.S. authorities for wire fraud, securities fraud and money laundering.
In June 2016 the then 36-year-old Ruja, renowned for her expensive dresses and red lipstick, walked on stage at Wembley Arena in front of adoring fans. She told the cheering crowd that OneCoin was on course to become the world's biggest cryptocurrency. OneCoin, Ruja spewed, was the Bitcoin Killer. "In two years, nobody will speak about Bitcoin any more!" she shouted. The truth was OneCoin wasn't just a fake cryptocurrency, it was a classic pyramid scheme, with the fake coin as its product. The company claimed to have more than 3 million members worldwide.
OneCoin generated some 3.4b euros ($4b) in revenue from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2016, but had zero value. The location of Ruja Ignatova remains a mystery.

Italian cop raid nets dormice—mafia delicacy

Italian cops found a cache of 235 frozen dormice, which are a protected species in Italy. They also found more in cages being fattened up for slaughter. The creatures are a favorite of the ’Ndrangheta, whose members believe eating them during important meetings brings wisdom. They are also on the menu when warring clans make peace. Dormice were widely consumed in ancient Rome, often stuffed with ground pork and pine nuts.
The dormouse population is in rapid decline both in number and range. Many species are extinct. Their habitat tends to be old woodland, which is also in decline.
