Gambino crime family
Seven people have been arrested by the FBI in the New York City area as part of an international crackdown on mafia drug smuggling, U.S. authorities told CBS News.
There’s little doubt that Gotti is nursing a stab wound, but other circumstances surrounding the story are a mystery.
A dozen members of three of the Genovese, Gambino and Luchese crime families are among those in custody, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
The long-term investigation, called “Operation Flat Rate,” focused on gambling and loan sharking rings, the real moneymakers for the Gambino crime family.
A former close friend of John Gotti Jr. who confessed to conspiring to kill three people was freed from jail after helping law enforcement jail 80 members of organized crime.
The Gambino crime family, knocked down and knocked down again by federal indictments, is reportedly going back to the old pre-John Gotti way of running an organized crime family.
Thursday was a good day for federal agents and bad day for the mob. In the morning the FBI made arrests from New England to Florida. In all, 127 mafia members and associates were charged.
A man reputed to be a former close associate of former Gambino boss John A. Gotti has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder.
