DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER… John A. (Junior) Gotti’s former best friend – and the feds’ chief witness against the mob scion at his last trial – was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his own career of crime in early 2011, he never served a day. John Alite had pleaded guilty to two gangland murders and a slew of other crimes and got more jail time than infamous rats Salvatore (Sammy Bull) Gravano and Salvatore Vitale, who were more prolific killers. Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn and Tampa wrote letters to Federal Judge Susan Bucklew praising Alite’s cooperation as “extraordinary” and “substantial,” John Alite was a rat, he told all to get a deal and a new life…….
TAMPA MOB….John Edward Alite, 44, lived in Brazil for nearly three years. U.S. authorities accused Alite, also known as John Alletto, of controlling illegal businesses, illegal gambling, extortion, drug trafficking, money laundering, kidnapping and murder as a top lieutenant in New York’s Gambino family. One such business was Prestige Valet, a Tampa company federal authorities say Alite and four other men used to infiltrate the valet business. Alite’s alleged business partner, Ronald “Ronnie One Arm” Trucchio, and three co-defendants were found guilty of conspiracy and racketeering in Tampa federal court.
John Edward Alite aka Johnny Alletto, DOB 9/30/1962, is not currently in the Federal Bureau of Prisons System see link http://www.bop.gov/iloc2/LocateInmate.jsp. John Alite aka Johnny Alletto is 5′ 8″ tall and weighs about 180 lbs., I’m sure a lot of people want Mr. Alite dead. John E. Alite entered a plea Jan. 16 2008 with the Fed’s but it was kept secret until December 11th, 2008 its release triggered by another mob trial set for January 2009 in New York. As part of the racketeering plea, prosecutors say (dirtbag) John Alite admitted involvement in two murders, four murder conspiracies, at least eight shootings and two attempted shootings — including one in which the intended victim was his former roommate at the University of Tampa, Tim Donovan.
John Alite’s crew reported to New York resident Ronald Trucchio, known as “One-Arm Ronnie,” a “capo” or boss in the Gambino crime family, authorities say. Trucchio faces a separate indictment in South Florida that links him to a $2-million armored car heist and a $400,000 bank robbery. His crews are also suspected in several killings. John Alite was Trucchio’s top man in the crew, authorities say. He used his position to “instill fear in others,” the indictment states. Alite and Terry Scaglione, also a defendant in the indictment, were officials with A&A of Tampa, which later changed its name to Prestige Valet, according to Florida business records. Prestige has had contracts with St. Joseph’s Hospital and the shops in Channelside, according to court documents. The company also parked cars at restaurants and nude dance clubs, including Thee Doll House. The mob often targets industries that have ties to industries it already influences, experts say. Traditionally, the mob has had ties to the restaurant and club scene, making valet parking a natural extension.
John Alite also acknowledged participation in armed home invasions and armed robberies in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, the government said. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Alite has acknowledged his role as a top associate in the crime family and specifically admitted to participating in the murder of George Grosso on Dec. 20, 1998, and in the murder of Bruce John Gotterup on Nov. 20, 1991. Prosecutors said Alite also admitted to participating in four murder conspiracies, including conspiracy in 1990 to kill Louis DiBono. All three New York-related murder charges were included in a Tampa indictment handed up against Junior Gotti earlier on August 6th, 2008.
John A. “Junior” Gotti has been indicted on conspiracy charges in Tampa Florida, linking him to large-scale cocaine trafficking and the slayings of three New York men in the late 1980s and early 1990s, federal officials said Tuesday. Federal prosecutor Robert O’Neill announced the indictment of the 44-year-old Junior Gotti and five other men at a news conference. He said the indictment showed that the men were “trying to gain a foothold” in the Tampa area (via John Alite).
See my prior post, Tuesday, August 05, 2008 one day prior to the news of the Junior Gotti Tampa indictment, ATTENTION TAMPA NIGHT CLUBBERS, YOU WERE GIVING YOUR CAR KEYS (AND HOUSE KEYS) TO THE MOB ! Co-owner of Prestige Valet in Tampa, John Alite aka Johnny Alletto (photo above on far left), was the “wiseguy” who acted as the go between the New York Gotti Mob family and the Tampa Gotti underworld, this guy may have been in your car and had access to all of your keys, your name and home address info from the car registration, that is always in the glove box or visor. The former alleged boss of the Tampa Gotti Mob enterprise, John E. Alite, is awaiting trial in Tampa after being captured and extradited from Brazil.
In the mid 1990s, John Alite aka Johnny Alletto became involved in a valet company called A&A of Tampa, which later changed its name to Prestige Valet. Prestige had contracts with St. Joseph’s Hospital and the shops in Channelside, according to court documents. The company also parked cars at restaurants and nude clubs. Valet parking offers other advantages to the Mafia. The business provides legitimate jobs for mob associates, especially those on probation or who have to stay out of trouble for a while. And some crime rings duplicate keys and later steal the cars or break into homes
On Sunday afternoon August 24th, 2008, I (private investigator Bill Warner) was having a pool party at my house watching the pre-season football game between the Giants and the Jets with friends when I got a phone call from a woman who needed an emergency photo taken of her “husband” cheating on her at Lido Beach in Sarasota Fl, she claimed she had followed the husband from St Pete to Lido Beach FL where he met another woman. The woman caller went on to claim that she would pay me $300 cash if I would just come over to Lido Beach and get a photo of her husband with this “other woman,” I told her this was short notice and I could not make it.
The woman called back in 15 minutes (cell phone – 727 area code Clearwater) and claimed she would pay me $500 cash to please come over and meet her in the Lido Beach parking lot and get a photo of her husband with this “woman”, at this point I started questioning the female caller about why didn’t she take the photo herself and if she was at the beach and saw her husband with another woman why did she not just confront him?
The woman caller realized that I knew ”it was a set up to get me to come over to the Lido Beach” parking lot and her tone of voice changed dramatically as she said “some day you will pay for writing the story about Johnny alite and his valet business” and hung up. It appears some of John Alite aka Johnny Alletto‘s goons, or him, were at Lido Beach waiting for me to give me one of his famous baseball bat beatings, isn’t it just like a dumb ‘wiseguy’ to bring a baseball bat to a gun fight. John Alite aka Johnny Alletto became involved in a valet company called A&A of Tampa, which later changed its name to Prestige Valet in Tampa Fl.

John Edward Alite DOB 9/30/1962 two social security numbers are associated with this dirtbag, he has relatives living in Voorhees NJ, Cherry Hill NJ and Woodhaven NY. It appears that a woman, who possibly was an ex-wife, moved to Glenview IL in August 2008, same time John Alite went into witness protection program, just after the attempt to get me to come over to Lido Beach Fl on August 24th. John Alite aka Johnny Alletto tried to implicate New York City private investigator Bo Dietl in a pay for info scam that involved the Gambino crime family. Celeb Private Eye Bo Dietl ‘horrified’ by mob accuser John Alite. Celebrity crime-fighter Bo Dietl said a mob snitch’s claim that the ex-cop sold secrets to the Gambino crime family hit him like a bullet in the chest, see link to Bo Dietl’s website http://www.investigations.com/
Celebrity crime-fighter and private investigator in New York City is Bo Dietl, his photo above, John Alite is a lying dirtbag who will say and do anything to further empower himself. “It’s horrifying that someone could accuse you of something like this,” Bo Dietl said at a news conference he called yesterday to clear his name. “I fought against criminal activities all my life. This is so opposite of what I’m all about. Personally, it’s like someone shot me.” Dietl, a private investigator who was the subject of the 1998 film “One Tough Cop,” told reporters that he wants the US Attorney’s Office to find out who leaked an FBI report that included John Alite’s claim that Dietl took payoffs from the late John Gotti’s brother, Richard, in exchange for case information.
