The last of the remaining fugitives in the historical mob take down last week surrendered on  Wednesday to the FBI in New York, authorities said.

Joseph “Joe Dogs” Lombardi,  a “made” Gambino crime family soldier, who faces extortion charges, was the last fugitive of the 127 indicted last week in what the FBI called the biggest mob roundup in its history. The indictments were aimed at the five New York families, one in New Jersey and the New England mob.

The multiple indictments unsealed last week — there were 16 in four jurisdictions — included allegations of murder, extortion, racketeering, loan sharking, gambling and shaking down businesses for protection.
