Dim Crims: 'Mobster' faces shoplifting charge

A reputed New York City mobster has been arrested on charges of trying to steal $164 in lighting equipment from a Home Depot, according to the New York Daily News. Angelo ‘Little Angelo’ Spata is the son-in-law of Colombo crime boss Carmine ‘The Snake’ Persico, the Daily News said. He was already out on $1 million bail in a federal racketeering case.  The report alleges that Spata was on Coney Island at one of Atlanta-based Home Depot’s Brooklyn stores on Nov. 8 when he tried to steal a dimmer switch and LED recessed lights.  [Source]   [BJS]
