BREAKING: feds search MP police dept

It's gettting a bit warm in Anthony Bruno's inner circle. CBS2 (Dorothy Tucker):

While authorities declined to talk about their investigation, sources tell CBS 2 that Melrose Park Police Chief Veto Scavo was the target of the raid....

The source said the officers were providing security for a number of businesses, including nightclubs. A nightclub manager, who declined to be interviewed, said Scavo forced bars to use his private firm and threatened not to answer their calls for help if they didn't.


Creative shakedown, eh?

  • The Melrose Park Police Department is a continuing illegal enterprise in its entirety? This is getting interesting...

  • Here's a couple nuggets from the NBC5 story.

    The investigators came from the FBI and the IRS, as well as the postal inspectors and the U.S. Department of Labor.

    Previously, NBC5 has reported that a $42 million water project in Melrose Park was under investigation, especially questions about a $432,000 public relations budget, as well as another $2.5 million for something called "program management."
