A Toronto-area businessman who runs a payday loan and foreign exchange business — and is the son of a man named as a powerful Mafia boss in Ontario — has been arrested in what police call an ongoing fraud investigation.

Carlo DeMaria, 39, of Maple, Ont., north of Toronto, faces 10 charges, including fabricating evidence, identity theft, laundering the proceeds of crime and possession of property obtained by crime.

Mr. DeMaria is the owner of the Cash House and is the son of Vincenzo “Jimmy” DeMaria, who is currently imprisoned for an alleged breach of lifetime parole after a murder conviction in 1981.
