    Boston Globe: State Police fire John M. Analetto, ex-trooper convicted of trying to collect gambling debt for bookmaker (June 20 2013)

    A Belmont man has been dismissed from the State Police after his federal conviction in May of extorting money on behalf of a bookmaker. John M. Analetto was dismissed from the force by State Police Colonel Timothy M. Alben.


    Analetto was arrested by investigators on Dec. 31, 2011, and tried on two counts of extortion, based on secretly recorded videotapes made by bookmaker Robert Russo, who was cooperating with federal law enforcement. The jury ... convicted him for threatening a gambler who owed Russo more than $3,000 for several months. Analetto was recorded discussing how he planned to threaten the gambler, making references to raping the gambler’s mother with a broomstick. Analetto also called the gambler using an untraceable Walmart cellphone and left a message that the gambler should pay his debt and do so soon. He also made a reference to the gambler’s parents, saying he hoped they had a Happy New Year. “2012 is not going to be a good year for you . . . capice?” Analetto said in December 2011, in what prosecutors said was a threat.
