Wagswoofs – Law enforcement officials from the FBI and NYPD are currently conducting a search of two farms located in upstate New York as part of an ongoing investigation into a case related to organized crime.
According to various local news outlets, law enforcement sources have disclosed that the recent searches conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday were carried out as part of an investigation into the notorious Gambino crime family.
One of the farms underwent excavation using a backhoe.
According to a source in law enforcement who spoke to the New York Post, the search is aiming to locate potential buried bodies on the properties.
It came as no surprise to the neighbors when the search was conducted.
According to WCBS-TV, resident Mary Nally has reported strange occurrences in her neighborhood. She claims that people gather at odd hours of the day near the end of the driveway, and that there have been unusual noises and bright lights emanating from the barn at night.
According to prosecutors, a group of ten individuals associated with the Gambino crime family were recently charged in Brooklyn Federal Court for conspiring to commit racketeering. The charges include violent extortions, assaults, arson, and union-related offenses.
According to a statement released by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, the individuals on trial were identified by nicknames such as “Joe Brooklyn,” “Vinny Slick,” and “Uncle Ciccio.”
According to a report by News 12, one of the farms that underwent a search is linked to Salvatore DiLorenzo, who is among the indicted alleged mobsters.
Reports on Wednesday stated that the search did not yield any remains. However, authorities planned to resume the search on Thursday.
