An Ocean City man pleaded guilty Wednesday to providing ammunition to Nicodemo S. Scarfo Jr. — son of jailed mob boss Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo.
Todd Stark, 43, told U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler in Camden federal court that he provided ammunition for a 9 mm handgun to Scarfo and his friend Salvatore Pelullo, despite knowing they were both convicted felons, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman.
A 2008 search of Scarfo’s home turned up two boxes of the same brand of ammunition that Stark provided Pelullo.
The single count to which Stark pleaded guilty carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.
The charge, conspiracy, is a part of a 25-count racketeering indictment against Stark, Pelullo, Scarfo, and 10 others. Pelullo and Scarfo are the lead defendants.
The racketeering indictment charges that the lead defendants took over FirstPlus Financial Group in Texas and stole at least $12 million.
Scarfo pleaded not guilty to those charges in June 2010.
