A heist that took place 36 years ago and was portrayed in the movie “Goodfellas,” came back to haunt five aging gangsters recently. The FBI has indicted the men on suspicion of their involvement in a ton of mob activity over the years. Including the “Lufthansa Heist.” In the Martin Scorcese film “Goodfellas” they talk about the fabled “Lufthansa heist” at JFK airport in 1978. It was not fiction and the was a real heist. The largest of its kind, at the time. With over $6 million in cash and jewels stolen.

According to CNN

In an indictment that reads like the script of “Goodfellas,” alleged mob captain Vincent Asaro, 78, and other alleged members of the Bonanno organized crime family are accused of murder, racketeering, armed robbery, arson and extortion.
“These ‘goodfellas’ thought they had a license to steal, a license to kill, and a license to do whatever they wanted,” George Venizelos, assistant director-in-charge of the FBI’s New York office. “However, today’s arrests of the five members of the Bonanno crime family brings an end to their violent and ruthless ways.”
