CRIME Mobsters charged in international plot to control New York garbage truck industry, DOJ says

The plot turned out to be garbage.

 

Ten New York-based mobsters and another six in Italy have been charged in an international conspiracy case that alleges they conspired to dominate the Big Apple's trash hauling and demolition industries while scamming unions and beating up people who got in their way, according to the Justice Department.

The suspects, all alleged members or associates of the Gambino crime family, face federal racketeering charges on allegations that include extortion, arson, multiple assaults and union fraud.

The alleged ringleader is Joseph Lanni, according to court documents, also known as "Joe Brooklyn" and "Mommino," a purported mob captain who the Justice Department alleges was involved in the unrelated beating of a man and woman who owned a New Jersey restaurant in September.:snip:
