A home near the third tee of La Costa Country Club, at 2050 Caleta Court in Carlsbad, is up for sale for $2.2 million. It was the home of Allard Roen, one of four controversial Las Vegas developers who developed La Costa with the help of money from the corrupt Central States Teamsters fund and from San Diego's late banker C. Arnholt Smith, whom a San Diego Union reporter called "Mr. San Diego of the Century."

One of the four was Moe Dalitz, whom a special Senate committee in the 1950s called one of the 20th Century's most notorious gangsters. A Federal Bureau of Investigation official said in 1978 that "The individual who oversees the operation of La Cosa Nostra families in Las Vegas is Moe Dalitz."

The other partners in La Costa were Merv Adelson and Irwin Molasky. The Reader's Matt Potter has been pointing out that Molasky has a contract to construct buildings for the FBI.

In 1975, Penthouse magazine ran an article charging that La Costa was a hangout for mobsters. Then ensued a ten-year court battle that ended with both sides handing insincere compliments to the other side.

Roen died in 2008. His wife Eveyn died in November of this year. Her death probaby led to the house going up for sale.
