One of the men was the son of imprisoned former Philadelphia-South Jersey mob boss Nicodemo "Little Nicky" Scarfo.

Todd Stark pleaded guilty in June to conspiring with Nicodemo Scarfo Jr. and Salvatore Pelullo to provide ammunition for a 9-mm handgun while knowing both were convicted felons.

Scarfo and Pelullo were among suspects arrested in 2011 on charges of taking over a Texas-based mortgage company and draining it of $12 million in assets through salaries and purchases. Both are awaiting trial.
