Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Three men face federal charges for allegedly providing security for two cocaine shipments in 2001.

Prosecutors say on two occasions Robert Nardolillo of Providence agreed to accept money from an undercover FBI agent for providing security for what the agent said was a cocaine shipment.

Prosecutors say Clifford Falla of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, stood guard over the supposed shipment on two occasions. They say Anthony Gobbi, of Boston, assisted, and on one occasion, also stood guard.

The incidents allegedly took place at hotels in Providence and Warwick.

A complaint against the three men for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and other charges was filed last week. The three were arrested last Thursday.
