16 Members and Associates of Gambino Crime Family Arrested in International Operation for Alleged Racketeering Conspiracy, Extortion, and Union-Related Crimes

Ten members and associates of the Gambino crime family have been arrested and charged with 16 counts of racketeering conspiracy, extortion, witness retaliation, and union-related crimes. The charges stem from an alleged attempt to strong-arm their way into New York City's garbage hauling and demolition businesses, with some defendants accused of using baseball bats to intimidate their victims. Six additional alleged organized crime members and associates were arrested in Italy as part of the operation. The U.S. Attorney's Office has stated that the arrests are part of an effort to "dominate the New York carting and demolition industries."
