    NY - NJ, RI "Mob Sweep" 100+ Arrested

    The sweep began before dawn and the targets ranged from small-time book makers and crime-family functionaries to a number of senior mob figures and several corrupt union officials, according to several people briefed on the arrests. Among those arrested or sought, some of the people said, were more than two dozen made members of New York’s five crime families and the families in New Jersey and New England, along with dozens of their associates.

    News conference at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
    The names and specific charges of those arrested are expected to be announced in New York by Attorney General Eric Holder's office at a news conference at 11 a.m. Thursday.
    The arrests come amid concerns over a possible resurgence of organized crime in the region despite a scattered history of defections to law enforcement over the last two decades.

    NY - Over 120 face charges in Northeast mafia crackdown

    Over 120 face charges in Northeast mafia crackdown



    NEW YORK – Federal prosecutors say 127 people are facing charges in one of the largest Mafia crackdowns in FBI history.

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said at a news conference Thursday in New York City that the defendants include high-ranking members of the Gambino and Colombo crime families and the reputed former boss of organized crime in New England.

    Holder says the charges cover decades worth of offenses, including hits to eliminate perceived rivals, a killing during a botched robbery and a double shooting in a barroom dispute over a spilled drink.

    Authorities say the investigation was aided by informants who recorded thousands of conversations by suspected mobsters.

    This will drag on and half the defendants will die of old age.

    The lawyers will all become multi-millionairs.
