Biggest Mobster Bust in New York City History

It is being called the biggest mobster roundup and, when all is said and done, the single most aggressive organized crime bust to ever take place in New York City.

The charges range from gambling to racketeering to murder.

More than 100 suspected mob associates were being arrested throughout the early morning hours Thursday as part of several federal investigations.

Law-enforcement officials said members and associates of all five New York mafia families - as well as New Jersey's DeCavalcante family - are among those being arrested, NBC New York reported.  Other families included the Gambino, Genovese, Lucchese, Bonanno and Colombo.

An 11 am ET news conference was scheduled to discuss details of the arrests, which stretched across the tri-state area.

The FBI confirmed the early morning roundup via a press release.

"Early this morning FBI Agents along with our law enforcement partners began arresting over 100 organized crime members for various criminal charges," said Diego Rodriguez of the FBI New York office. "Additional information will be available at the U.S. Attorney's offices later today."
