Michael 'The Nose' Mancuso headed back to slammer - sunk by gravy

Acting Bonanno mob boss Michael Mancuso is headed back to the slammer for 11 months — thanks partly to a chat with a wiseguy about making pasta gravy. Mancuso, 68, was released in 2019 after serving a decade in prison for a murder plot. He had been using his girlfriend’s Long Island eyeglass shop as a meet-up spot to gossip with mobsters, prosecutors said. That was verbotten. “Are you gonna do the gravy today or make the sauce?” Mancuso asked Colombo soldier Michael Urvino on an Oct. 24, 2020, wiretapped call. Urvino responded, “No, I’m making it in the morning … cause we’re not gonna eat early. What time you want to eat tomorrow?”

Verdict in the Marengo trial of Ridouan Taghi postponed

Saïd Razzouki, Ridouan Taghi.
A court in Amsterdam said weeks ago that the cases against main suspect Ridouan Taghi and 16 co-defendants are so complex that a new date will have to be established for a verdict. The original judgment date of October 20, 2023 is unfeasible, the court declared. Prosecutors are seeking life for Taghi and his right hand man Saïd Razzouki. The Marengo trial is one of the biggest murder trials in the history of the Netherlands and started over two years ago. The defendants are accused of planning 13 gangland murders, of which six were carried out between 2015 and 2017 in the ‘Mocro mafia’ drugs war. Investigative journalist Peter R. de Vries was murdered in 2021 because of his involvement in a gangland murder trial. Taghi and Razzouki are the leaders of the gang who set out to ruthlessly dominate the Dutch underworld.
Anyone considered a threat was put on Taghi’s death list including innocent people he feared could provide information to cops.
Taghi micro-managed some killings, ordering his hit teams to put three bullets into the head of one victim and to carry out the murders “with style.”

Trevor Parkstrom - 'no regard for law and order'

One man crime wave Trevor Parkstrom, 48, has pleaded guilty to another half dozen charges throughout the Okanagan. Parkstrom puts the 'P' into prolific. When cops arrested Parkstrom in a stolen truck they linked him to 12 files since December 2022 and 22 files in the past 90 days. RCMP said that Parkstrom is named to 150 calls for service since 2013. Lawyers return on Oct. 5 to set a date for Parkstrom’s sentencing, which will take place in First Nations court in Kamloops. Parkstrom is free on bail at a Kamloops recovery facility. He likely won't stay caged for long if he does get time. In 2022, Kelowna had the highest reported crime rate of 10,532 per 100,000 residents. Lethbridge came in second at 9,358 and Winnipeg in third at 8,757. Citizens may look to Trevor Parkstrom as to why.

HA arrive for 40th anniversary bash - update

Up to 300 bikers are gone. The weekend was relatively peaceful, noted cops. One incident occurred in a Langley restaurant where HA in colours were asked to leave and they refused to pay. Cops were involved until other Hells Angels eventually covered the bill.
Hundreds of bikers from across Canada are partying at the gang's compound in Langley to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the White Rock, East End and Nanaimo chapters.
Peons from the puppet club Langford Savages were tasked with gate duty. Events gives cops a chance to photograph every biker coming or going.
Club events virtually never result in trouble. The gang's primary goal is to appear as big and bad in public as possible. The gang's goal is absolutely not to attract cop heat on business operations.

GTA-wide commercial cargo theft ring nailed

15 were busted following an investigation into an auto theft ring that stole loaded commercial vehicles and then sold the cargo. Project Big Rig began in March. Cops recovered 28 containers of stolen cargo valued at $6.99m. An additional 28 stolen tractors and trailers valued at $2.25m were recovered. Warrants were served on six GTA storage locations. “They were entering lots of the facilities through the fences,” say cops. “They would cut the fence, go in, steal a truck, and drive out through the fence.
Cargo was often stolen roadside in industrial or residential areas or at truck stops when left unattended by drivers needing a break. Cargo theft is a low risk and high reward crime. It has been rising exponentially over the past few years.

Con man pardoned by Trump charged with fraud

Eliyahu "Eli" Weinstein and four others are charged with fleecing more than 150 people out of $35 million. Using the alias Michael Konig, Weinstein and the others formed a company called Optimus Investments Inc. The group claimed it had "lucrative deals" on N95 Covid masks, "scarce baby formula" and "first-aid kits bound for Ukraine." If convicted on all charges, the five face a maximum of 25 years in prison and fines. The SEC has also filed a civil complaint against Weinstein.
