Reputed Mobster Enrico Ponzo Goes To Trial After Years On The Lam

Enrico Ponzo goes to trial this week in a Boston federal court. The reputed Patriarca associate was living on the lam as cattle rancher Jay Shaw in Marsing, ID for sixteen years until his apprehension in 2011, and now he finally will face mob charges including his alleged role in the 1989 murder attempt against the power hungry Francis P. "Cadillac Frank" Salemme during a family squabble as reported by Milton J. Valencia for The Boston Globe: "when authorities raided his Idaho home after his arrest by US marshals in February 2011, they found $100,000 in cash, and $65,000 in gold coins, as well as 22 rifles, eight handguns, and 34,000 rounds of ammunition, according to court records."
