NJ mob-arrestsNEWARK, N.J. (AP) – Eleven reputed members and blankociates of a major New York-based organized crime family are facing charges in New Jersey.

Acting state Attorney General John Hoffman announced details of the arrests during a news conference in Newark Tuesday. Ten of the suspects are from New Jersey, while the other is a New York City resident.

The attorney general’s office alleges the suspects reaped millions of dollars through loansharking, sports gambling, unlicensed check-cashing and money laundering. They say the loansharking operation brought in more than $1 million in illegal interest each year.

Authorities say those charged include Charles Tuzzo, 80, of Bayside, New York, who is a reputed capo in the Genovese crime family, and Vito Alberti, 55, a New Providence resident and a reputed soldier in the same crime family.
