FBI busts alleged Gambino, Lucchese members


A two-year racketeering investigation resulted today in the arrests of 10 alleged members of the Gambino Crime Family and three alleged members of the Lucchese Crime Family, according to a broadcast report on WABC-TV in New York City.

George DeCicco, 77, an alleged captain in the Gambino family, was among those arrested and charged with participation in a criminal enterprise involving extortion, loan sharking, money laundering and bribery.
FBI spokesman Jim Margolin told reporters that a cooperating witness helped as the FBI accumulated hundreds of hours of taped evidence.
