Series May Be Gone, But the Mob Isn't

The Sopranos tv series may have gone off the air, but the government says the traditional mob continues on.

Nearly a dozen Palm Beach and Broward county residents were indicted today (Thursday) after federal prosecutors outlined their alleged roles in a organized crime ring specializing in fraud, illegal narcotics, gambling and mob-style shakedowns.

The crew operated out of South Florida, but regularly reported and paid tribute to the powerful Bonanno Family, a New York City-based Mafia unit, according to the indictment from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami.

Boynton Beach resident Thomas Fiore, 46, is an associate of the Bonanno family and leads its South Florida operation, prosecutors said. Each of the 11 alleged criminals were indicted on federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, charges after a two-year undercover investigation.

The other defendants include Billie Robertson, 34, and Lee Klein, 39, both of Boynton Beach; Daniel Young, 57, and Guy Alessi, 81, both of Delray Beach; Kenneth Dunn, 44, and Nicholas Fiore, 49, both of Boca Raton; and Frank D’Amato, 48, of West Palm Beach. The indictment also included Coral Springs residents Pasquale Rubbo, 43, Joseph Rubbo, 45, and Marc Broder, 42.

None of the defendents are formally inducted, or “made” members of the Bonanno family.
