NY Firefighter Cilento tied to Bonanno crime family

October 6th 2011 | Posted by UnderBoss


The feds have revealed details about Brooklyn firefighter Anthony Cilento and his ties to the Bonanno crime family. They claim Cilento of Ladder 166 in Coney Island served as muscle for a coke delivery service and even went as far as being part of a gangland beat down. Cilento claims he quit his gangland gig when he joined the bravest back in 2008 but prosecutors are not convinced. Now Cilento is facing a sentence of up to 20 years in jail if found guilty.

Prosecutors say that Cilento’s relationship with the Bonanno family is corroborated by consensual recordings which were made over a full year into his NYC fire department service. So Cilento did not turn his back on the mob when he took this job for the city said prosecutors. Court papers claim that Cilento committed a litany of crimes including illegal gambling , extortion, and violent assaults on behalf of the Bonanno family.

Cilento was reputedly the right hand man of Bonanno soldier Anthony “Little Anthony” Seccafico. Cilento carried messages from Seccafico to other Bonanno family mobsters and even threatened a bar owner at gunpoint along with Seccafico for failing to pay up on protection money said Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicole Argerentieri. Cilento was pinched back in August and he has been denied bail and faces an uphill battle to get out of jail before he goes to trial despite support from his FDNY bretheron and family.
