Full story: Lowell Sun

Two decades before he opened the popular Angela's Coal Fired Pizza here last year, Eric Sideri was a small-time drug dealer for a Haverhill-based drug ring, The Sun has learned.

This guy kind of looks like my shakedown man "Sal" I hope he gets off soon I can't do it all alone.
Thanks Lowell Sun

For publishing the dirt on the Sideri Family. The Lawrence Eagle Tribune is either too lazy or too paid off to write a story like this.

Bye Bye Angela's Pizza!

Think I'm going to go have some Freedom Fries with my lunch today. Drive around town, a free man. That's what happens when you don't commit felony after felony. You get to remain free to live a good life with the ones you love. Not like this loser. His days of freedom are long gone now. I doubt he even wants to be outdoors. I'm sure someone is looking for their thousands of dollars owed to them. To bad the police have the money now. Gee, it's great to be free!

He's used to house arrest, right? I mean he was under it before so I'm sure he knows how to get things, uh, delivered.

It's funny the Town still claims to be in the dark.Here's a good question: They say they have no clue,does that mean if a person applied for a license and owed $50k in back property tax to a different town at a previous location,Tyngsboro would have no idea and just approve them? or do you think they would look into it and see if they were going to get stiffed? The old landfill isn't the only thing that stinks in Tyngsboro.

I agree completely with you. The Town HAD to have been aware of Sideri's past, the fact that he mis-represented his wife as owner of record. Something doesn't pass the smell test here. If the Selectmen had any brains, they'd move to have that dump closed down immediately. I believe that they have ENORMOUS civil liability every minute that it stays open.

Not to mention, their total lack of due diligence in protecting the Tyngsborough citizen's interests.

Was he really investigated for the death of his first wife?

I doubt it. IIRC it was a pretty clear cut case of natural (and tragic) causes.

It is pretty obvious the selectmen probably took a payoff and that is why the place is still open. They are probably afraid that if they shut the place down then the "wannabe gangster" or his wife will expose the selectmen and disclose the payoff that was made. This will lead to some type of internal investigation probe that will unveil corruption on the local level of politics in Tyngsboro. This could be speculation but look how corrupt MA politics are today.

How did this pass the state liquor license review? The owners husband is a convicted coke dealer? That didnt set off any warnings?

I would check around and see who if Eric's father or any member of his family made any contributions i.e. money, airline tickets, open tab at Angelina's, or business arangements with anyone remotly involved with the liquor comission. Believe me, if any Sideri knew that the wheels would have to be greased, they are just the family to do it. Like I said before, the Tower of Babel is going to crumble an the Scumderis. Ask those that know the way they do business. This is right up the Scumderi's alley.

It is well known that Eric is a RAT. He ratted out his drug-dealing buddies in a succesful bid to get a huge reduction in his Prison sentence. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes right now. I'm sure there are more than a few people waiting to see what prison his wheel-of-misfortune lands him in.And if he starts dropping dimes in this case, and the case in question concerning Angela's liquor license???? Couldn't happen to a more deserving Jerk!
