Molina-ChaconDuring 1984, in an effort to infiltrate the drug ring,
undercover federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents, posing
as drug dealers interested in obtaining large quantities of heroin,
contacted Melania Lopez, the New York-based girlfriend of Molina-Chacon.
Lopez eventually agreed to introduce the agents to Molina-Chacon. The
agents travelled to Spain, met with Molina-Chacon and discussed the
possibility of obtaining large amounts of heroin. In addition, they
discussed helping Molina-Chacon to smuggle $20,000,000 in drug profits
he claimed to have left behind in the United States. Molina-Chacon told
the agents that his connections were Sicilian-based and that there were
stockpiles of heroin and a heroin laboratory in the hills of Sicily. He
boasted that, at the height of their operation, the organization was
importing eighty kilos of pure heroin every fifteen days. Although he
acknowledged that shipments ceased temporarily following the Italian
drug bust, Molina-Chacon claimed that was the only eighty kilo shipment
they had ever lost. For several months, DEA agents recorded their
conversations with Molina-Chacon. At one point, Molina-Chacon attempted
to solicit the agents' help to collect the $1,000,000 debt Castelbuono
owed the drug organization. Various options were considered, including
killing both Castelbuono and Silvetti or simply injuring Castelbuono to
