Nearly two dozen members of the notorious Lucchese crime family, including its bosses, have been arrested in a huge FBI mob bust in New York.
Nineteen of the family’s hierarchy and several associates were among those arrested on Wednesday on charges ranging from murder to the illegal sale of cigarettes, according to court papers.
The crimes were committed in connection to a larger racketeering scheme run out of New York and dating back at least 17 years, prosecutors said.
Lucchese street boss Matthew Madonna and his second-in-command Steven Crea Sr. were among those busted by FBI agents.
