Included in the charges that were filed were bribery charges. They were related to the gambling operations, although authorities did not elaborate on the extent of the charges. One thing had become evident to the police, however, and that was the operations had ties to the mob.

"These investigations uncovered the intricate netork that organized crime families had developed in Staten Island," said Richmong County District attorney Daniel M. Donovan in a statement.

A state court officer was at the center of the investigation. The officer, who was arrested, was a middle man for bettors and the bookmakers that was serving the gamblers. The Luchese and Gambino crime families were targeted in the raid.
