A Philadelphia mob soldier nicknamed ‘Joey Electric’ was sentenced to 15 years in prison for selling crystal methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl-laced pills. 

Joseph Servidio, 60, had already pleaded guilty in a Camden federal court to conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. 

The Marmora man has to also serve five years of supervised release as part of his sentence, NJ.com reports.   

Identified as a member of La Cosa Nostra, Servidio worked with 80-year-old conspirator Carl Chianese to distribute the pills, according to filings in the case.

Pills were stamped to appear similar to prescription Oxycodone or Percocet.   

Authorities said that the pair also peddled crystal methamphetamine, even selling to undercover FBI agents on several occasions. 

Servidio distributed more than 200 grams of fentanyl and heroin, and about 300 grams of crystal meth. 

He was extremely upfront about his illicit dealings, as heard on audio recordings captured by an FBI informant.  

‘We need something (income) legitimate. I’m a criminal. Everything I do is criminal, I got to get out of it..I need like $250,000 a year, or two, to break even. That’s what I need,’ Servidio said in the recording, the criminal complaint states. 

Servidio further incriminated himself by even boasting of his knowledge of how people get caught.  

‘Eighty percent of eyewitnesses got the wrong person. Eighty percent. They look like the person … so without any corroborating evidence, you can even beat that,’ Servidio said, court records state. ‘The things you can’t beat are the tapes…with you saying it.’

Chianese was sentenced to 10 years in prison in March. He was also ordered to forfeit a firearm and money.
