Feds indict dozen more Lucchese members for Racketeering

United States Attorney Preet Bharara has announced the indictment of a dozen others for their alleged "participation in a racketeering conspiracy involving the illegal gambling, sports betting, and loan sharking activities of the Luchese Organized Crime Family." Several of the defendants "participated in a scheme to bribe a corrupt sergeant and detective with the NYPD to protect various illegal gambling parlors in the New York City metropolitan area"; however, "the sergeant and detective who accepted the bribes . . . were actually acting undercover as corrupt police officers."
