Steven Crea Sr

Gang Land‘s Jerry Capeci writes, 

In a sweeping roundup, the feds arrested 19 members and associates of the Luchese crime family yesterday, including its top three wiseguys, and one of their sons, hitting them with a slew of racketeering charges including the gangland-style slaying of a major drug dealer, and three attempted mob rubouts in the past five years.

Mr. Capeci writes,  In the blockbuster indictment, the family “street boss,” Matthew (Matty) Madonna, its underboss Steven (Stevie Wonder) Crea, and his son, Steven (Stevie Junior) Crea Jr. are charged with ordering the 2013 murder of Michael Meldish, leader of the Purple Gang, a rogue crew of heroin dealers and hit men. Madonna, 81, is already behind bars in New Jersey on gambling charges. The elder Crea, 69, of Crestwood, and Crea Jr., 45, of New Rochelle, were detained without bail.

Mr. Capeci writes, As Gang Land reported three months ago, the murder charge against Madonna and the Creas stems from a three-year grand jury investigation by the White Plains Division of the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office that led to the February indictment of the alleged hit team in the Meldish slaying – wiseguy Christopher Londonio and associate Terrence (T) Caldwell.
