According to sources, it’s alleged that Alex Capobianco, Mayor Joseph Curtatone’s cousin was arrested this past Thursday on allegations of that he defaulted on a court ordered appearance to be drug tested.
The allegations allege that Capobianco is being held in custody at the Plymouth House of Correction.
Last week Capobianco was arrested in Medford with allegations that he was charged with driving under the influence and drug possession with intent to distribute including possession of large quantities of crystal meth and was later released with no bail and ordered to appear back in court in March.
Capobianco was recently cleared of all charges on a prior arrest for drug possession and counterfeiting charges by the Middlesex District Attorney as well as by Wakefield, Cambridge, Somerville Police Departments as well as by the United State Secret Service.
Capobianco is cousin to Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone as well as South Middlesex Registrar of Deeds Maria Curtatone.
Capobianco was also arrested back in January for alleged possession of Crystal Meth Drug Charges.
The arrest was made in Stoneham by Wakefield Police Officers who allegedly followed and stopped Capobianco in Stoneham on a routine traffic stop after they observed him driving with no lights on after dark.
According to sources, after the traffic stop, Capobianco allegedly flashed his retired Somerville Police badge which caused officers to observe Capobianco’s condition to be impaired.
Allegedly after searching Capobianco, police found evidence of the drug Crystal Meth in his possession.
Capobianco recently retired from the Somerville Police Department amongst allegations after his arrest by Cambridge Police for trying to pass counterfeit bills in Cambridge.
Capobianco is cousin to Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone as well as South Registrar of Deeds Maria Curtaton.
Allegations are also hovering over the Curtatone cousin that when he was on the job in Somerville that he asked a Somerville Police officer who responded to a call who was at a crime scene of a sudden death to strip the deceased victim’s body of his valuables.
The deceased victim was a known drug dealer, and also a friend of the Mayor Curtatone’s cousin Officer Alex Capobianco.
While Sgt Joe McCain who was standing over the body at the scene, his partner Capobianco called him, saying he couldn’t make it there, and further, asked Sgt McCain to take possession of a large wad of cash in the deceased victim’s pocket, along with a Rolex watch that he was wearing.
He told McCain over the phone in this conversation that the watch and the money belonged to him, so grab them before the body is removed.
Sgt McCain reported the details of the matter to the department superiors who immediately sent it to then Lt Dan Cotter to be investigated who himself has been since publicly accused of covering up police investigations for the past twelve years.
Sgt Joe McCain has since then been squeezed out of the department, all because of alleged political retaliation.
Lt Dan Cotter who has since then been promoted to Captain and now recently retired from the Somerville Police Department is also being accused of alleged tampering and mysteriously loosing evidence on this case as a favor to the mayor.
FBI extortion and racketeering charges have been sought on Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and five other co-conspirators including Somerville Police Captain Dan Cotter in August of 2017 and criminal complaints filed against the six accused with the Somerville Police Department in October of 2017 which are still pending.
The mayor’s cousin Alex Capobianco remained on the Somerville Police Department’s payroll, and was recently subsequently charged with the crime of counterfeiting by the Cambridge Police.
Officer Alex Capobianco was fired by Former Somerville Mayor Dorothy Kelly Gay during her administration for allegedly selling drugs in 2003, while in uniform, inside the Somerville High School, as the School Resource Officer.
Mayor Joseph Curtatone, his cousin, rehired Capobianco back after Mayor Gay lost the election to him in 2004 and Curtatone was elected.
As of Tuesday morning the mayor’s cousin has been charged with the following according to the Wakefield Police Department: Poss. Marijuana intent to distribute, poss methamphetamie intent to distribute. Simple Poss of Atavan, simple poss. Vidalista, ch.90 lights violation
