Investigators arrested people from all five prominent New York Mafia families — the Gambino, Colombo, Bonanno,
Genovese and Lucchese families, Attorney General Eric Holder said.
Some of those arrested were charged with murder conspiracy, arson, extortion, narcotics trafficking, illegal gambling, labor racketeering and murders that date back as far as 1981, sources with knowledge of the case said.
About 110 people, including several high-ranking family members, were in custody by mid-morning, a source said.
