The FBI has arrested Enrique Ros "on charges he conspired with a suspected Italian Mafia figure to launder money and obstruct justice" as reported by Jon Burstein for the Sun Sentinel:
Enrique Ros, who runs Five Star Executive Protection and Investigation, voluntarily surrendered to FBI agents Tuesday after getting off a plane at Miami International Airport. The arrest came five days after federal prosecutors unsealed a nine-count indictment against him, his business partner Daniel Dromerhauser and Roberto Settineri, who is thought to have acted as a key intermediary between a crime family in Sicily and the Gambino crime family in New York City. The three were ensnared in a November 2009 sting set in motion when Fort Lauderdale fraudster Scott Rothstein began cooperating with federal authorities investigating his $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme, according to news reports. Rothstein, who knew the men, pretended he needed help destroying documents and laundering $79,000, the news reports state.
