Suspected mobster returned to RI

A suspected mobster arrested earlier this month in Las Vegas is back in Rhode Island to face charges in connection with an alleged gambling ring.
State police said officers traveled to Las Vegas Wednesday and took custody of Alfred "Chippy" Scivola, a reputed longtime member of the Patriarca crime family. He was brought back to Rhode Island, arraigned at the Lincoln State Police barracks, and released on $25,000 with surety.
Scivola and over 20 other suspects were arrested earlier this month following a lengthy investigation into an alleged sports betting ring based in Johnston . State police said the operation involved some "made" members of the Patriarca crime family, including Scivola, Edward Lato, and Frank "Bobo" Marrapese.
