A federal-trial evidence photo from 2007 shows Kaboni Savage (left) with Eugene Coleman (right). Lamont Lewis was known to police as an associate of Savage, a drug kingpin. Lewis’ cousin helped the FBI carry out its sting operation
.For $2,500,  Lamont Lewis, a North Philadelphia drug dealer, said he would kill an FBI informant who, his cousin said, was cooperating with police in a narcotics investigation against him.

The Inquirer is withholding the cousin’s name for his security. He may be called as a witness in the racketeering-murder trial of Kaboni Savage, the drug kingpin on whose orders, authorities allege, Lewis and another associate firebombed the rowhouse on North Sixth Street in October 2004.
