Forget Election Hacking–Russian Mobsters Busted for Jacking 10,000 Pounds of Chocolate in NYC
Forget hacking the US elections, these Russian mobsters in New York City went for something completely different. The feds have arrested dozens of members of a Russian organized crime group connected with some real' serious and not so sweet crimes .
WNBC, New York says thirty two members and associates of a New York City-based mob are named in federal court papers facing charges of racketeering, murder for hire and many other crimes, including (oddly) the trafficking tens of thousands of pounds of stolen chocolate!
Those arrested Wednesday were associated with the New York City based, Shulaya Enterprises, and all born in either the former Soviet Union, the Ukraine, or the nation of Georgia, according to Business Insider. There’s no doubt that if the charges stick they’ll be doing decades of prison time.
For law enforcement, getting these guys off the street was sweet.
