Oct. 19 — A New York City sanitation worker is one of 37 people indicted Oct. 18 in an alleged Gambino Family mob gambling and loan shark ring, according to New York newspapers.
Among the charged is Louis Lombardo, 41, of Brooklyn, a five-year veteran of the New York City Sanitation Department who works in its transportation unit, according to a report in the New York Post.
According to the indictment, filed by the state attorney general’s office, Lombardo was the “bank” in the loan sharking enterprise.
According to court records, Lombardo faces 21 felony gambling charges, a misdemeanor conspiracy charge and a more serious enterprise corruption charge, which carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison, according to a news release from the state AG’s office.
State and city police, in a joint investigation called “Operation Flat Rate,” used wiretaps, surveillance and GPS devices to gather evidence. According to the AG’s office, they discovered two illegal sports gambling operations with “millions of dollars worth of wagers” operating through offshore wire rooms that handled bets on college and pro sports, and horse racing.
“The charges also assert that one of these three enterprises was a ´policy operation,´ or an illegal playing the numbers scheme, in which bets were placed on the New York Lottery’s Numbers and Win 4 games,” the AG’s news release said. “In some instances, victims of the loan sharking enterprise would be required to place wagers on the numbers – all to finance the policy betting operation.”
Among the other people charged was part-time actor John Marinacci, 56, who starred in a bit role in two episodes of “The Sopranos,” according to the New York Post.
