Albanian mobster may be in Ridgewood
An Albanian mob boss with ties to Ridgewood has landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
The Feds and Interpol want Plaurent “Lenti” Devishaj for a string of murders committed in his native Albania. Authorities allege that Devishaj killed a rival gang leader using an anti-tank weapon, which launches a missile capable of destroying an armored vehicle.
Investigators believe Devishaj fled Albania for New York in 2006 and could be going back and forth between Queens and New Jersey. Standing 6’1″ and weighing in at 220lbs, the hulking mobster is considered armed and dangerous. Authorities are asking that anyone with information contact the FBI.
