Authorities in New York and Sicily unleashed a massive mob takedown today, indicting more than 60 suspects, including the entire Gambino family leadership, the New York Times reports; 52 have already been arrested, including underboss Domenico Cefalu and consigliere Joseph Corozzo. “I can't think of a larger single-day roundup,” a source told the New York Post. “It dismantles the infrastructure of the family.”

Boss John D’Amico, aka “Jackie the Nose,” is still at large, believed to be on vacation. The indictment also targets members of the Genovese and Bonanno families, and executives from several trucking and construction companies. The 80-count indictment includes charges ranging from murder to racketeering, including five murders attributed to a single Gambino soldier, Charles Carneglia. (More mob stories.)
