The "G" Men: Muck-raking takes on a whole new perspective when the President issues an executive order to deport all criminal non-US citizens. Our job just got easier. The Task Force has swept in quickly with a series of raids to arrest and deport multiple members of the local crime families. Today was another sweep by our group.

Casto was just walking out of a tavern with two other members of the Ricci crew when we spotted him. His buddies weren't exceptionally loyal because they bolted. No problem. We'll find them later. Today, it was Bassegio's number that came up. He's headed back now...

Geocache Description:

Flag Counter

Special Agent this is your task:

Three crime families have joined forces to create a vast underworld syndicate. They are led by the notorious Geno "John" Amato. The supply and demand for illegal goods and services is undermining public morals, neutralizing law enforcement through corruption, and infiltrating the legal economy. Local law enforcement has been unable to reduce the threat. Appropriate countermeasures must be taken! **Coords for the GC4KDFH Vincent Delveccio (Delveccio Family Boss) may be hidden in this cache. Always look and take notes.**



This is not a power trail! This is 164 caches spread over 26 miles and filling your Fizzy grid TWICE. If this is not your kinda thing, please put it in your ignore list.
