Four alleged Gambino crime family associates – one of them a former Port Authority cop – were busted Tuesday in connection with the sale of narcotics and the extortion of a Manhattan businessman, sources told The Post.

Two of the four, ex-PA cop Steve Cilluffo, 62, and Quentin Carbone, 49, were expected to be charged with extortion for pressuring the owner of an office cleaning business to pay more than $60,000 in protection money, the sources said.

Cilluffo, Angelo Gurino and Mike Gamble were also charged with illegally selling the powerful prescription narcotic hydrocodone, the sources said.

The four, all from Howard Beach, were rounded up by the FBI agents and investigators from the Manhattan DA’s office.
