Undercover cop Ronnie Dimestico arrives in Port Charles in July 2009 working for the Zacchara organization along with undercover cop Dante Falconeri. Ronnie grew up in Bensonhurst, where he knew Dante and Olivia Falconeri and became Dante's lieutenant. Dante and Ronnie work together to find evidence Sonny Corinthos killed his wife Claudia Zacchara by testing ashes from the fireplace at his house.
In December 2009, Ronnie is revealed to have had a past with Franco. Before he was accepted into the police academy, he allowed Franco to take the fall for a crime he committed. In February 2010, Dante and Ronnie decide to work for the Port Charles Police Department. Ronnie finds Johnny Zacchara shot in September 2010 and hides Johnny's gun to set Sonny up for attempted murder. In November 2011 Ronnie and Dante along with Dante's new partner Delores Padilla try to find who is beating up the strippers at Johnny's club. After an initial suspect in the case is found to have been murdered, Lulu suspects Padilla's husband, Eddie Cabrera, could be the assailant, providing an explanation as to why Padilla seems to be involved in the removal of evidence in the case. However, upon meeting Eddie, Lulu concocts a new theory. Perhaps Ronnie is the one attacking the strippers, and is attempting to pin the crimes on Eddie to avoid suspicion. Ronnie catches on and kidnaps Lulu to prevent her from saying anything. It is revealed he is in fact the person beating up the strippers. He frames Dante for the crime. He takes Lulu to a motel and holds her hostage there. In the hallway of the motel, he runs into Sam Morgan. When Sam gets suspicious of what's going on in the room, Ronnie kidnaps her too because she has become a liability just like Lulu. Dante and John finds them at the haunted and during a struggle. John shoots and kills Ronnie.
