    FBI Arrests More Than 100 People in Mafia Crackdown

    U.S. FBI agents have arrested more than 100 Mafia members and associates, in the largest single-day operation in the history of the agency.

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, speaking to reporters in Brooklyn, New York, said Thursday that the arrests took place early Thursday morning. He said people were detained in the northeastern U.S. states of New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island for crimes including drug dealing, extortion and murder.

    Holder said agents arrested people from seven Italian-American organized-crime groups in the northeast, and one person was arrested in Italy.

    The famous "Five Families" of New York were among the La Cosa Nostra organized crime groups targeted. The families are historically linked to the Sicilian Mafia.

    The head of the FBI's New York office, Janice Fedarcyk, told reporters the arrests are the result of years of investigative work, including use of cooperating witnesses who carried court-authorized wire taps and recording devices.

    Holder said Thursday's arrests, a collaboration among federal and local law enforcement agencies, mark an important step forward in the fight against La Cosa Nostra, but he cautioned that the fight is far from over. He said fighting organized crime will remain a top priority for law enforcement.

    They didn't mess around on this one. Seen the story on FOX and I think I read that they used 700 or so agents to do the round up.
