New Orleans Mafia (Present)

Postby icegoodbarbPresident » May 2nd, 2008, 6:23 pm

Anthony Carolla,son of former boss Sylvestro, took controll of the family after Carlos Marcello died and when Carlo's brothers had no desire to became boss. Carlo's son "Little Joe" Marcello was never groomed to take over the reins and is more involved in New Orleans high society. Carolla and his underboss "Fat" Frank Gagliano have both been long time members of the Family. In 1996 both men were sentanced to a 3 year prison term on racketeering charges involving the video poker industry. They should be getting out soon if not already out. The Family keeps close ties to the New York Families. Narcotics and gambling are their main way of making money. The family has never recovered from the 80's and is much weaker than it used to be. There is a estimated 10 "made" members left.

Although Marcello is looked at as the best boss the New Orleans Cosa Nostra Family has ever had, he is often also looked at as the worst boss the family has ever had because of the reason that he never intended and never did make new members, no made members where made between the years of 1943 until 1993 in the New Orleans Mafia Family, since 1993 there is a chance a few have been made, but, there is not much of a chance. Because of Marcello never making any new members his crime family fell from one of the most powerful in America to "on it's last legs".

The New Orleans Mafia today has 5-10 made members amd are into narcotics and gambling. In 1999 they're were busted with the gambino family in video poker.

Since video poker was legalized in Louisiana in 1991, the blinking electronic machines have swept the state, showing up in barrooms, hotels, crayfish restaurants in the swamps and even at huge truck stops, where the main business is not refueling but playing video poker.

There are now 13,256 video poker machines in the state, and the number is growing. In just one week in April, players put $23.8 million into the machines, about the usual weekly amount, says Gregory Albrecht, the chief economist in the legislative fiscal office. A video poker machine at a truck stop collects about $1,000 a week; a machine at a restaurant, about $800. The state expects to receive $100 million in revenue from the machines this fiscal year.

Such numbers have not been lost on others. On Tuesday, 17 men, identified as members of two organized crime families in New York and one in Louisiana, were arrested on charges of engaging in a scheme to skim profits from the video games.

The men, including Joseph (JoJo) Corozzo of Queens, who has been identified by the United States Attorney's office here as a captain in the Gambino crime family, were indicted in an inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Louisiana State Police that began even before the first legal video poker machines were installed in May 1992. United Crime Move Charged

"It's a very significant case," said United States Attorney Robert J. Boitmann, "because the indictment alleges organized crime families in New Orleans and in New York united to infiltrate legalized gambling -- that is, the video poker industry in Louisiana."

Video poker machines accept bets of $1, $5 and $10, up to a maximum of $200 at a time, with the maximum payout $500. The state collects 9.7 cents for every dollar bet, Mr. Albrecht said, and turns over 2.4 cents of that amount to local governments.

The dollars are good for the state but a bad investment for the player, Mr. Albrecht said. "For every dollar you put in, you get back an average of 57 or 58 cents." But that has not stopped Louisiana gamblers.

The indictment accuses the Genovese and Gambino families in New York and the Marcello family in New Orleans of engaging in a pattern of racketeering by forming an enterprise to profit from video poker operations while hiding their connections to organized crime. Ties to Organized Crime

Mr. Corozzo is a close associate of Peter Gotti, whose brother, John, is serving a life sentence in Federal prison. Among those arrested was John Gammarano of Brooklyn, also known as Johnny G., who was identified by the law-enforcement authorities as a Gambino "soldier.

Among those arrested in New Orleans were Anthony S. Carollo of Slidell, La., who was named in the indictment as the boss of the Marcello crime family, and Joseph Paul Marcello Jr., brother of the late Carlos Marcello, who was long regarded as the head of the Mafia in Louisiana.

The others arrested were Steven R. Bolson of Linwood, N.J., a lawyer; Eugene Gilpin of New York; Kenneth A. Jowaiszas of Clifton, N.J.; Paul Morabito of Port Washington, L.I.; Christopher J. Tanfield of Navarre Beach, Fla.; Frank J. Gagliano Sr. of Metairie, La.; Joseph F. Gagliano of Kenner, La.; Cade R. Farber of Metairie; Felix A. Riggio 3d of Hammond, La.; Murton Schlesinger of Metairie, and Aaron Mintz, Anthony Joseph Tusa Jr. and Victor Joseph Tusa Sr., all of New Orleans.

According to the indictment, Mr. Bolson and Mr. Tanfield, both believed to be associated with the Gambino and Genovese families, and Mr. Mintz established a company called Worldwide Gaming in December 1991. Mr. Mintz allegedly acted as the majority stockholder because Mr. Bolson and Mr. Tanfield did not meet Louisiana's residency requirements. Company Called a Victim

The United State Attorney's office here says Worldwide Gaming, which is now in bankruptcy, became the distributor of video poker machines for Bally Gaming Inc. of Las Vegas, Nev., and Bally Gaming agreed "to furnish Worldwide Gaming with approximately $20 million worth of credit, inventory and cash." Collections from the video poker business were "skimmed, stolen and diverted to the organized crime families," the authorities said. Law-enforcement officials here said Bally Gaming, one of the nation's largest manufacturers and distributors of gaming machines, was a victim of fraud and had cooperated with the F.B.I.

Neil Jenkins, a spokesman for Bally, said the company was claiming in Worldwide Gaming's bankruptcy proceedings that it owes Bally Gaming $10 million.

Mr. Albrecht and others say the video poker scandal comes at a critical time for Louisiana. The State Legislature, which is scheduled to resume work next week, will be considering proposals to curb the video poker industry's wild growth.

That growth has been helped by the loosely written 1991 video poker law, says Capt. Ronnie Jones of the Louisiana State Police, which oversees the machines. But he said Louisiana "has always had a romance with gambling." Trying to control video poker, he added, is "like trying to plug a dike: you run out of fingers and toes."

That video poker bust involving the Marcello, Gambino, and Genovese families was in 1994. Even at that point, the New Orleans family was considered virtually extinct. The skimming operation was largely stage mangaged by the New York families. What was left of the Marcello organization was brought in because it was still technically their territory. Today, there is probably less than 5 members left.

I don't even know if Carollo is still alive. There might be a few members left but I couldn't name them and I haven't seen any modern day charts for the New Orleans family. It is basically defunct, if not extinct.

Anthony Carollo is still alive at 84 but pretty much just an advisor if that. Frank gagliano known as the underboss 77 and his son joseph gagliano 49 probably are in charge and there is probably a younger generation of mobsters just there are probably only like 5-10 members

Anthony is in all probability dead, just like Carlos and the other Marcello brothers. I'd be surprised if the family even had 5 members left.

There are Marcello decedents around the area, but I don't think they are even involved in any "organized crime" anymore. In the 90's there were some Marcello "wanna be's that were hitting the Gulf Coast with petty crimes and got busted....Most of the Old timers turned to real estate down here and probablyhave more "legal" action going on right now. The New Orleans mafia differed from the New York, etc mafia because most of what was accomplished was done through bribery of government officials, all the way up to the governor. As "straight" politicians started taking office, the power of bribes diminished.

Yeah, the last major criminal activity involving the Marcello family was the video gambling operation that had going with the Gambino and Genovese families in the 1990's. Of course, that was eventually broken up. Marcello's descendants inherited millions of dollars (mostly in real estate) after he died. When he was alive, Marcello never made a lot of members into the crime family, choosing to keep it built around himself, his personal family, and a small group of made members. Most of Marcello's political contacts went with him when he died in 1993, and by then the family was already in decline. Whatever members there are remaining (and it is probably no more than a few at most) are likely old and relatively inactive. As such, the LCN in New Orleans is considered basically extinct.

Some of what's left of the old New Orleans family got involved in the levee construction after Katrina as well as a lot of the general construction boom. The main reason why none of the kids of the old grease balls got into the rackets is because these guys left millions in cash and legitimate businesses and real estate to thier kids. In other words, these kids never had to work a day in their lives and they sure as hell wouldn't risk the family fortune by getting into anything shady.

Basically New Orleans is an open city and it's a shame because there is more opportunity here than probably ever before. The drug trade is almost totally run by the blacks so it is very sloppy and the murder rate is out of sight. Illegal gambling is very popular since there are a few local casinos in town and dozens more within a 2 hour driving radius. Some small operations are run out of neighborhood saloons but they aren't organized in any way. Nobody is paying tribute because there is nobody to need protection from.

Local law enforcement would probably welcome a renaissance just because things are so sloppy here like the old wild west. Any enterprising wise guys from up north would probably do well by teaming up with some locals and getting something going. New Orleans needs a sense of respect restored to its former kingdom of crime under Don Marcello instead of all these hood rats ruining the city.

Anselmo's have been around New Orleans for quite a long time so it's possible that an Anselmo could have been involved in the local LCN scene. It doesn't appear that anyone from that family held a postion of significance though.

There is an Anselmo family that owns an Italian restaurant in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie but their claim to fame is their son is Phil Anselmo, front man for the 80s-90s speed metal band "Pantera". You can see pictures and rock memorabilia from the band hanging on the wall at the restaurant so if you were a big Pantera fan it's worth stopping by to see. The food is pretty good too.

Was this a relation to the Chicago gangster Anselmi? Where do both families come from in Italy?

With regard to the dominant names in the New Orleans mafia, as was stated earlier in this thread there are very few, if any made members of the original Marcello organization left. Marcello's main motivation was money, not necessarily the proliferation of his crime family after he was gone as evidenced by the small number of members that were "made" during his tenure as boss. His two top capo regimes were Nick Karno and Frank Caracci - both French Quarter night club owners. The widows of Karno and Caracci still own many of the bulldings on Bourbon Street to this day. Carlos Marcello knew that after he died the family would lose much of its political protection as well as stroke with the commission. Rather than naming a successor he allowed the family to be broken up into factions that would continue to work together loosely going forward after his death. Karno and Caracci each formed their own families and the remainder of the Marcello organization came under the control of Carlos' brother Joe. While there have been discrepencies as to who was the actual "boss" of New Orleans, it appears as though this may have been by design and was Marcello's plan all along - to head fake the feds.

The Karno and Caracci factions kept a very low profile after Marcello's death and quite frankly had grown so rich that by the time they died, their wives and children inherited such a fortune that none of them needed to work much less become criminals. The Marcello family continued to control much of the illegal gambling, prostitution, and drug trafficking on the Gulf Coast until the video poker bust of 1995. After that there has been little to no OC activity to speak of in New Orleans. In fact, most of the "organized crime" in New Orleans inthe last 10-15 years has been committed by the local politicians. The FBI in New Orleans has probably indicted more politicians in Louisiana in the last 10 years than all New Orleans mobsters in the 20th century. The sad part is that post-Katrina New Orleans is run by loosely organized street gangs that operate more like terrorists than gangsters. The Police Chief is afraid to go after the gangs because they are "too crazy" and blood thirsty.

[quote="nolawiseguy"] I am not sure about any relation to Chicago or from what part of Italy the Anselmo's came from.[quote="nolawiseguy"]

Whatever heirs still living are multimillionaires from the inhertances they've received from the Marcello family fortune. They have no need to involve themselves in criminal activity.

The last 15 years of what's left of the New Orleans mob can be summed up in the paragraph below -


In March 1993, long time family Boss Carlos "The Little Man" Marcello died of natural causes. In June 1994, 17 members and associates of the Gambino, Genovese, and Marcello crime families were arrested following a two year investigation involving the skimming of poker machines in Lousiana. The FBI has originally become aware of the operation while investigating a local bookmaking ring. Among those arrested was Gambino family Captain Joseph “Jo Jo” Corozzo, Genovese associate Eugene “Noogie” Gilpin, Marcello family Boss Anthony “Mr. A” Carolla, Marcello family Underboss Frank Gagliano, as well as Joseph Marcello Jr., brother of the crime family’s late Boss Carlos Marcello. The defendants had used frontmen to set up two companies, Worldwide Gaming of Louisiana Inc. and Louisiana Route Opertors Inc., that were licensed to sell, distribute, and receive revenues from video poker machines in the state on behalf of Bally Gaming Inc. of Nevada. From 1991 to 1994 the mob members and associates involved were able to skim money from the machines before taxes were due and funnel the money to their respective crime families. Bally Gaming, which had worked with the FBI in the investigation, ultimately reported a loss of $25 million. Within a year a total of 25 people involved, including a Louisiana state legislator, had been tried and convicted or pled guilty.


Other than that, there has been no identifiable significant LCN activity in the New Orleans area. There are still a few old time members left but they appear to be no longer active. The family is all but extinct.

Then I guess the new generation's strategy to fly below the radar is working.

FYI - A&E's Biography Channel is profiling Carlos Marcello this weekend on their "Mobsters" series.

I talk to a lot of people (on the internet) who live in Cleveland, Kansas City, St. Louis, Milwaukee, etc. and say the same thing. But whatever is left of these families, including New Orleans, federal authorities don't see them as a serious investigative priority. The truest way you can judge the state of an LCN family is how much effort law enforcement making in going after them. In all of the above families I listed, you have to go back to the 1990's or before to find the last indictment.
