NEW YORK (AP) — Nine reputed members of the Bonanno crime family in New York City have been charged with what prosecutors are calling old-school mob activity: gambling, loan sharking, extortion and drugs. 

A 158-count indictment was unsealed in New York on Tuesday. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said the two-year investigation "demonstrates that organized crime is still operating in New York City and has its hooks into the labor movement." 

Two of those charged in the indictment are members of a local Teamsters union.
