According to sources on the street and in law enforcement, the 82-year old Marino, sprung from his federal prison cell back in October, was recently promoted to “street boss” of the region by his best friend Salvatore (Solly D) De Laurentis, the Outfit’s current acting boss.
While some octogenarians are trying to slow down and do less in their old age, Louie Tomatoes wants to make up for his lost time as a free man.
Federal surveillance records show Dino regularly dining with Solly De Laurentis and sometimes chauffeuring him around on his daily rounds.
Lake and Mc Henry County fall under the responsibility of the syndicate’s Cicero crew dating back to the days of legendary Windy City Prohibition era mafia don Al (Scarface) Capone.
Solly D, 76, was released from prison in 2006 and per sources, assumed day-to-day control over the Outfit around late 2013.
Previously, De Laurentis was in Marino’s slot as north suburbs street boss.
