I'm going out on a limb here but my sources on this post have for years been absolutely impeccable, having never once been wrong so without documentation I'm willing to take a chance.
I'm being told that Greensboro's Rocco "Rocky" Carmine Scarfone, owner of the Cone Denim Entertainment Center located in downtown Greensboro, is under a felony investigation that might result in the closing of one or more of Mr Scarfone's clubs. The exact nature of the investigation has not yet been made available to me.
I e-mailed Greensboro Police Chief Anita Holder Friday to confirm but she has yet to reply.
Management at Cone Mills and its parent company, the International Textile Group, have failed to respond to my numerous e-mails over several weeks concerning Cone's involvement with Scarfone, a known gangster with ties to organized crime and an extensive criminal record that includes fraud, cocaine trafficking and other charges.
Greensboro City Councilman Zack Matheny has never confirmed or denied his own involvement with Rocky Scarfone even though his involvement has been made well known.
Greensboro Mayor Nancy Barakat Vaughan has never confirmed or denied her involvement with Rocky Scarfone even though her involvement has been made well known.
Could it be the Mayor and Councilman are also under investigation along with Mr Scarfone's partner Jeff Furr?
