A Brooklyn judge has rejected a proposed $2 million bail package for a reputed Colombo crime associate charged with two gangland murders and the shakedown of a pizzeria.

Magistrate Cheryl Pollak ruled Monday that federal prosecutors had convinced her that Francis (BF) Guerra is a danger to the community and must remain in jail.

Guerra, indicted this month in the murders of Joseph Scopo and Michael DeVine, is accused of extorting money from"The Square" pizzeria owner Gene Lombardo in Staten Island last year.

Guerra's in-laws own L&B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn, considered one of the best slices of pizza in the city, and accused Lombardo of stealing their recipe.
