This New York Daily News investigation finds that "Carmine Agnello quietly built a $60 million empire in the New York City scrap industry by banking on his association with two powerful forces - the Gambino crime family and Caterpillar, one of the most recognized name in heavy machinery." The story reveals that Agnello is a "son-in-law" of jailed Gambino crime boss John Gotti" and "the feds say mob muscle is behind it all." The investigation has started with Agnello's arrest "on charges that he hired an associate to firebomb a competitor's business ... run by undercover New York City police officers."
