CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. –  (Associated Press) - Federal authorities say they've charged seven men in a racketeering bust targeting illegal gambling and other mafia-related activities on Long Island.

Newsday reports that the U.S. Attorney's Office says the men are members or associates of the Gambino and Bonanno organized crime families. All were arrested early Tuesday on the charges filed in federal court in Suffolk County.

Prosecutors say the men ran gambling, loan sharking, drugs and other criminal operations for the mafia from January 2014 to this month. The investigation involved the Suffolk County police, the New York Police Department, the FBI and other federal agencies.

Among those charged is 74-year-old John Ambrosio, of Huntington, described by prosecutors as an acting captain in the Gambino family who has been a fixture of organized crime on Long Island for decades. He pleaded not guilty.
