August 2, 2022 — New England mafia associate Dino (The Big Bully) Guilmette was busted for narcotics trafficking by state police in Rhode Island recently. The 43-year old Guilmette is a boxer, bar owner and someone alleged to get his drugs from the Carribean.
The case against Guilmette was filed in July; it included seven counts of selling anti-anxiety pills (Lorazepan) and capped a two-year investigation. Court records tie Guilmette to New England mob capo Matthew (Good Looking Matty) Guglielmetti. Both Guilmette and Guglielmetti live in Cranston, Rhode Island. Guilmette has made a name for himself around the Providence area over the past 20 years for participating in amateur boxing matches and tough-man competitions. </p>
Guglielmetti, 74, did a decade in federal prison for protecting cocaine shipments traveling through Rhode Island in the early 2000s. Guilmette is connected via phone records to several individuals known to law enforcement as wholesale drug offenders. Text messages found on his smartphone show him discussing drug deals.
Informants told investigators that Guilmette runs a cocaine business and reports directly to Good Looking Matty, a veteran of the New England mafia’s Providence faction. Guilmette has a child with Shayanna Jenkins, the former fiancee of one-time NFL tight end and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez (New England Patriots), who committed suicide in 2017 behind bars serving a life prison sentence. State police made a number of control purchases of cocaine from Guilmette and his crew in the fall of 2021.
