Butchers mob directory spills secrets

October 11th 2011 | Posted by UnderBoss


Mobbed up butcher Mike “The Butcher” Virtuoso isn’t such a wise guy after all. The Bonanno crime family mobster compiled the names , nicknames, numbers, and even mafia ranks and titles in a Rolodex which was recovered by the FBI. Virtuoso had all of his underworld contacts listed from crime family capos to consiglieres at his butcher shop , Graham Avenue Meats & Deli in Williamsburgh. The Rolodex was so detailed that the FBI agents who found it felt like they had some across a gold mine of mafia information. One law enforcement source said he didn’t even try and code or disguise the entries and putting all that classified information into writing was incredibly stupid.



Mike “The Butcher” Virtuoso



There are many members and associates of organized crime listed in the Rolodex including Anthony “Little Anthony” Pipitone an acting capo in the Bonanno family , Vito Badamo a made member of the Bonanno family , John “Johnny Sideburns” Cerello and Glenn “The Wheel” Guadagno listing them as Lucchese crime family‘s capos says prosecutors. The FBI says Virtuoso also did something akin to “mob scrap booking” because along with the Rolodex they also found newspaper clippings about cases that involved various mobsters which included Bonanno family boss Vincent “Vinny Gorgeous” Basciano and former acting Bonanno boss Sal “The Iron Worker” Montagna.

The feds now plan to use the mob Rolodex to prove that Virtuoso has the kind of mob tied friends that make him a danger to the community and his upcoming bail request should be denied. Virtuoso is awaiting trial for extortion charges for allegedly threatening several debtors of a loan sharking operation. Lawyers for Virtuoso maintain that he has a impeccable work history and has never admitted to being a mobster or a member of organized crime. But the feds plan to argue that the contacts listed in his mob Rolodex prove otherwise and show that he is actively involved in day to day operations of the mob.
