Gambino soldier pleads guilty to Brooklyn real estate investment shakedown

A Gambino crime family soldier yesterday pleaded guilty to a sophisticated extortion scheme aimed at a blue-chip real-estate investment firm.
Anthony Scibelli, charged with racketeering extortion, admitted that he shook down the owners of Sitt Asset Management.
The Gambino approach was unusual: A mob-linked contracting firm placed a lien on a high-rise that Sitt was constructing in Brooklyn, claiming it had not been paid for its work, prosecutors said.
The contractor allegedly never did any work, but the bluff would tie up the project in the courts. Since the lien could have blocked Sitt’s ability to secure financing, it paid the contractor $120,000 to drop the lien, prosecutors said.
But Scibelli then extorted $30,000 from the owners of the contracting firm, he confessed in Brooklyn federal court. He faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in June.
