Genovese crime family has long been known to control mafia activity in Springfield, Massachusetts and the syndicates crew there now has a new boss. According to sources mobster Albert Calvanese is now the leaders of the Springfield mafia crew for the Genovese family. The 52 year old mobster is known on streets as a fearsome enforcer and was a top earner under former Springfield boss Anthony “Bingy” Arillota. An internal war between the young up and coming Arillota and his mentor Adolfo “Big Al” Bruno threatened to destroy the Genovese family grip on the mob stronghold in the mid 2000’s.
Arillotta took control of the mafia crew after he green lighted a hit man which gunned down Bruno in front of his social club in 2003. He was a freshly made guy in the New York Mafia and with in months had been made a captain in the Genovese family after the death of Bruno. His reign wouldn’t last long as he went on to turn rat after being indicted in 2010.
Calvanese plead guilty in 2007 to racketeering and loan sharking charges and quietly did his time finally getting out in 2011. With the Arillotta saga playing out just as he finished up his prison sentence an opening had developed for a new crew leader in Springfield. So now Calvanese takes control and hopes his reign will be longer then that of his predecessor.
