FBI swoop on more than 100 Mafia suspects, including a former associate of Frank Sinatra

Five Families: The Rise, Decline, and Resurgence of America's Most Powerful Mafia EmpiresFBI swoop on more than 100 Mafia suspects, including a former associate of Frank Sinatra, but two organised crime experts tell Channel 4 News it will do little to stem crime in New York.

It was a scene straight out of hit mob drama The Sopranos: a coordinated dawn raid by the FBI and other law forces yielded high-ranking leaders from all of the so-called 'Five Families' or La Cosa Nostra - the Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo and Bonanno.

The FBI described it the largest bust in its history, swooping on 129 people, and among their arrestees were Richard Fusco, 74, consigliere of the Colombo family, and a former associate of the singer Frank Sinatra. The picture above was taken in 1978 and shows Fusco, at the bottom in a light suit, with Mr Sinatra, in what became an iconic image.

US Attorney General Eric Holder and other top officials told a press conference that among the arrested people was an alleged Mafia member they believe murdered a man over a spilled drink in a bar in 1981.

According to the New York Times, the targets ranged from alleged small-time bookmakers to six reputed senior Mob figures from three crime families, including the entire current leadership of the Colombo crime family.DISCLAIMER:Text may be subject to copyright.This blog does not claim copyright to any such text.
