Enrico Ponzo was arrested by law enforcement officials in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1994, for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and conspiracy to violate drug laws. He failed to appear in court to answer these charges and a local arrest warrant was issued. Subsequently, a federal arrest warrant charging Ponzo with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued by the United States District Court, Boston, Massachusetts, on December 12, 1994.
In 1996, Ponzo was charged with aggravated assault in Everett, Massachusetts. On April 4, 1997, a federal grand jury returned an indictment on Ponzo charging him with conspiracy to commit murder, interference with commerce by threats or violence, violent crimes in aid of racketeering, RICO violations, and firearms violations.
Many of these charges stem from Ponzo's alleged involvement in the New England La Cosa Nostra in the late 1980s. As a member of one of the two main factions, Ponzo allegedly participated in the conspiracy to murder and attempted murder of rival faction members, as well as in extortion and drug-related activities in the Boston, Massachusetts, area.
Ponzo has been a fugitive since 1994.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the location and capture of Enrico Ponzo.
