For Sale: Colacurcio house in Lake Forest Park

Saturday, May 31, 2014

For less than a million dollars, you can own the home of deceased organized crime boss, Frank Colacurcio.

Colacurcio, who died in 2010, was the owner of strip clubs Sugar's in Shoreline and Rick's in Lake Forest Park. 

From The Seattle Times:
In June 2008, the FBI, IRS and local police raided the then-90-year-old Colacurcio’s home and other properties, after a two-year undercover investigation built a federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) case against him and his associates. 
A year later, a grand jury indicted Colacurcio; his son, Frank Colacurcio Jr.; and four associates involved in operating four Western Washington strip clubs. The indictments alleged Colacurcio Sr. and the others conspired to use the clubs as fronts for prostitution and money laundering. 
Authorities pursued the case, in part, to dismantle Colacurcio’s syndicate — a target of law enforcement for decades — by seizing his clubs: Rick’s in Seattle; Fox’s in Parkland, Pierce County; Honey’s in Everett; and Sugar’s in Shoreline.

His home in Sheridan Beach escaped the forfeitures, and is on the market.

Sale of the Colacurcio home will mark the end of an era. It’s the last among three prominent Colacurcio-owned properties along a stretch of Highway 522 between Lake City and Lake Forest Park that marked senior’s latter-day stomping grounds. 
Rick’s strip club still operates, but under different ownership, and the building that for years housed Colacurcio’s Talents West administrative offices is now home to a medical-marijuana dispensary.

The Sugar's property was bought by a well-respected Shoreline businessman.

There's nothing like Shoreline in the country.
