NYPD Cop Exposed For Extorting Thousands Of Dollars From Local Businesses In Queens

Via Truth Voice:

“A Staten Island cop pleaded guilty Tuesday to shaking down the owner of a Queens pizzeria for illegal “protection” money, federal authorities said.

Besnik Llakatura also copped to extorting $1,000 per week from the operator of two social clubs in Astoria.

Llakatura, 37, and two co-conspirators, carried out a good-guy, bad-guy scheme with the victims.

The goons would threaten the victims to pay up if they wanted to operate in Astoria.

Then Llakatura would step in, pretending to befriend the victims and advise them it would be better to pay the money rather than notify the police.

Llakatura faces up to life in prison, but his federal sentencing guidelines are 154 to 171 months when he is sentenced by Brooklyn Federal Judge Eric Vitaliano on Feb. 26.”
