How to Become a Bounty Hunter



High Ranking New England Mobster Was FBI Informant, Court Documents Show

Mark Rossetti, a reputed capo in the New England Mafia, has been working all along as an FBI informant or “rat” as they say in the mob world.

The Boston Globe reports the revelation came out in court documents filed this week in Suffolk Superior Court. Rossetti was indicted last year on state charges of running a sprawling criminal enterprise of drug trafficking, gambling, and loan sharking.

The Globe reported that two lower-level players in Rossetti’s alleged crime ring filed the papers as part of a legal strategy in their own case.

The Globe reported that the papers do not identify Rossetti by name, but “he can be clearly identified through descriptions of his conversations with his FBI handler, and through a State Police organizational chart of his alleged crime ring, the Rossetti Criminal Organization.”

The Globe reported “that State Police recorded more than 40 conversations between Rossetti and his FBI handler in the spring of 2010, through a wiretap on Rossetti’s FBI-issued phone, according to the court documents. In the conversations, they discussed other Mafia figures and the possible role of Rossetti’s cousin in the 1990 art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, as well as Rossetti’s debt collections. According to the documents, it was during these conversations that State Police discovered Rossetti was an FBI informant.”
