FBI Nabs Up And Coming Lucchese Captain On Most Wanted List

The feds nabbed a young capo in the Luchese crime family at his girlfriend's Yonkers pad, law enforcement sources told the Daily News on Sunday.
Joseph (Big Joe) Lubrano, who was on the FBI's most wanted list, is 40, but is considered an up-and-coming wiseguy in the aging Luchese crew.
The hulking mobster, who stands 6-feet-2 and 230 pounds, is a convicted felon with close ties in the Arthur Ave. area of the Bronx, according to the FBI.
The FBI closed in on Lubrano after it got good leads from tipsters who spotted his mug shot on the agency's billboard in Times Square. Federal agents nabbed Lubrano about 6 p.m. on Saturday at his lover's Yonkers home, sources said.
Lubrano is due in Brooklyn Federal Court today, according to FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko. He's one of 11 wiseguys named in a 52-page indictment.
He is wanted for armed robberies in and around New York City, including a stickup of a Staten Island drug dealer and a heist of the proceeds from an illegal bookmaking operation, according to the indictment.
