Richard (Fat Ritchie) Chicovsky

After showing up to talk secretly with Carmello Merlino about the Gardner theft, Merlino told federal agents that he thought Chicofsky would be able to lead him to recover the stolen pieces. However, Chicofsky, a paid federal informant on other investigations, told the agents in a secret meeting that he was meeting with Merlino because he thought Merlino could gain the recovery. In the end, neither was able to facilitate a return.
