Former Bears Stearns Employee Victim Of Harassment By Pizza

If you were going to try and extort money Bear Stears alum, how would you do it? Would you call him at his new job and talk trash about his wife? Would you call his house and tell his wife he was running around on her with another woman? Would you call his mother-in-law in New Jersey and breathe heavily into the phone? Or would you bring out the big guns and start sending pizzas, sometimes 20 at a time, to his home in New Canaan, as a sign you really meant business? Donato Anthony Minicozzi chose all of the above.

A New Jersey flooring salesman was arrested on charges of making harassing calls and trying to extort a loan from a New Canaan man, police said. Donato Anthony Minicozzi, 49, of Brick, N.J., was charged with first-degree harassment, second-degree threatening and attempt to commit first-degree larceny…in early January, the number “Steve” was using changed. Food orders began arriving at the New Canaan house, one time, 20 pizzas, Hohn said. After listening to calls recorded, police became worried the caller was becoming more aggressive, the affidavit said. One time the caller said, “The way this is going to end is you are going to loan us money.” The man said sending pizzas to the house was a way of telling the victim and his family he could “get them any way we want,” the affidavit said. The stranger told the New Canaan resident he could keep his money and they would make his life torture. “The pizza is just a (expletive) start,” the caller said, according to the affidavit. A GPS readout then indicated the phone was at Minicozzi’s residence, the affidavit said. Following that, the wife recalled dating Minicozzi 20 years ago; they broke up after he took money from her, the affidavit said.

Some men my be hesitent waiting those 20 yrs so they leave her, only to make the move when her husband is now laid off and using his unemployment checks to pay for 20x pizzas at a time.

    If he hadn't stolen that money from her, she'd be married to a flooring salesman and living in Brick, NJ. Have a heart and give the guy $1000 for doing you the favor.

    OMG!!! When will you people learn? Move to Darien. As long as you are white, rich, and either play golf or sail we will protect you. Even if you once worked for Bear Stearns.

    I don't care what you want on it, every pizza comes with pepperoni and 9 millimeter bullets on it. If you don't like it, I don't care, because you will receive one anyhow.

    I believe ex-Bear employees refer to mistresses as their "goomah"; or, phonetically, their "goomad".
