they were a highly trained organized crime ring.
as far as I know, they caught most of them now.
that’s not to say there aren’t copycats but this one group was large and very organized.
I don’t know if they got the higher ups – in most org crime the higher ups manage to escape – but growing up in the New York New Jersey area, you always know at least a couple of guys that had a box of stuff that “fell off the back of the truck”
it didn’t matter if it was Russian mafia, Italian mafia, black mafia, it was all the same idea.
nowadays they can sell online much more quickly.
