Tax cops hit ‘Sal Capone’
This guy could be the next Al Capone.
An aged wiseguy has been slapped with tax-evasion charges for failing to fork over $367,000 from real-estate sales, authorities said.
Reputed Genovese soldier Salvatore “Sallie” DeMeo (inset) neglected to give the feds a piece of his $2 million action when he unloaded his shares in two Brooklyn properties, according to court documents.
Prosecutors said a small chunk was funneled into the plumbing company of a mobbed-up associate but they couldn’t locate the rest.
The beaming 77-year-old was released on $2 million bond Thursday.
Capone ruled the Chicago underworld until he was convicted on charges of tax evasion in 1931.
