Gambino Crime Family Targeted in Illegal Gambling and Loansharking Bust #NewYork #Mafia

The New York State Attorney General's Office unsealed an indictment on Wednesday charging 17 individuals, including alleged members of the notorious Gambino crime family, with participating in lucrative illegal gambling and loansharking operations.

The indictment alleges that the individuals were involved in a sports gambling operation that received over $22.7 million in illicit bets and a loansharking operation that brought in about $500,000 in usurious loans. The charges include enterprise corruption, criminal usury, and promoting gambling.

Among those arrested are alleged Gambino soldiers John Laforte, Anthony Cinque Jr., John Matera, and associates Edward Laforte, Frederick Falcone Sr., Giulio Pomponio, and Daniel Bogan.

Attorney General Letitia James stated, "Illegal gambling and loan sharking schemes are some of the oldest rackets in the mob's playbook. While organized crime may still be active in New York, today we are putting several Gambino family members out of business."

This indictment is the latest operation targeting alleged members and associates of the Gambino crime family, one of the most notorious criminal organizations in America.
