The owner of Monsam Enterprises (2685 Pittsburg Antioch Highway, Pittsburg), Joseph Mosis, was arrested by the Pittsburg Police Department on Friday for Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Mayhem on a former employee. Mosis was upset with his former employee over a labor dispute settlement. This infuriated him and he was looking for what he described as “enforcer” to take care of this employee. Pittsburg Police Detectives learned of his intentions late last week.
On Friday February 21st at 10:00pm, Mosis met with an undercover officer who posed as a “hit man” at a predetermined location. During their meeting Mosis provided graphic details of how he wanted the former employee to be disfigured and he provided the officer with undisclosed documentation further bolstering his intent to have this crime carried out. They also agreed on a price for carrying out this crime.
Mosis was arrested shortly after meeting with the officer and search warrants were served at his home and business. He is currently in custody at county jail with a $1,500,000.00 Bail. The District Attorney’s Office is scheduled to review the case in the upcoming days.
March 6 Update:
Joseph Mosis who has been held on $1.5 million bail, pleads not guilty on Thursday to one count of attempted aggravated mayhem. He could face up to 9 years in prison. His next court appearance will be in mid-April.
