Feds say Genovese associate owes $18,000

Any way you slice it, that's a heck of a lot of dough.
John "Johnny Pizza" Porcello is a reputed Genovese crime family associate who - quite logically - owns a pizzeria in The Bronx.
But now he's going to have to fork over a large stack of pepperoni to good old Uncle Sam.
Brooklyn federal prosecutors today hit Porcello with a forfeiture order totaling more than $18,000.
It seems as if the pizza-maker is no stranger to large amounts of cash.
When FBI agents arrested him last year on mob racketeering charges, they discovered that he was carrying on him a wad of dough - as in more than 4,000 in American greenbacks.
Porcello, who's plead guilty to loansharking charges, is awaiting sentencing in Brooklyn federal court.
