Geocache Description:

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!

Relentless. Aggressive. And, sly! Damasso could have been Governor of the state if he had taken the time to run. A smile and a glad hand extended, Damasso is in the public eye, but has arranged his "business ventures" in a creative way to cut all personal ties to the operation. Nonetheless, everyone knows that he is running the show. There's no doubt, just no proof. His contacts in local politics are said to extend all the way to the Federal level, but again, no concrete proof to prosecute him for any wrongdoing. Damasso will likely become the next Syndicate Boss, if John Amato, Jr struggles in gaining support with the Delveccio's.
