SCOLLO, OTHERS INDICTED FOR EXTORTION AT HOWLAND HOOK TERMINAL
A U.S. District Attorney in Brooklyn, N.Y., has indicted Frank “Red” Scollo, vice president of the International Longshoremen’s Association and president of ILA Local 1814, along with 16 other people on charges of allegedly operating dock-related extortion rackets in the New York-New Jersey port region.
The labor racketeering indictment said that, among other purported scams, members and associates of the Gambino crime family allegedly collected thousands of dollars each month from the Howland Hook Container Terminal on Staten Island. The terminal had been operated until last year by Carmine Ragucci. Management of the terminal has since been changed.
A spokesman for Howland Hook had no comment.
