Members of the FBI, NYPD and state police returned to two Orange County farms where officials were previously seen during what they said was a probe into the Gambino crime family.
News 12 saw roughly two dozen officials swarming one property at 117 Hamptonburgh Road on Tuesday – this time with K-9s and the New York City Medical Examiner.
FBI New York confirms it is present at the 117 Hamptonburgh Road location, as well as the second farm it was at last year at 51 Hampton Road in Goshen. Officials were seen in Goshen blocking the property driveway and with tents set up.
The agency would not release any further information. The NYPD has not responded to News 12's request for information, and a representative for state police tells News 12 they’re unaware of any law enforcement activity.
News 12 first reported on the property last November when authorities were seen digging for evidence, and neighbors sent video and photos of holes that officials left behind in the dirt.
At the time, authorities said the investigation was tied to a Gambino crime family probe, after 10 alleged mafia members were indicted for alleged violent attempts to take over the New York City garbage hauling and demolition industry.
The farms are 50 miles away from Manhattan. News 12 found the properties are both tied to the Dilorenzo family and an upscale home in West Islip on Long Island, according to a search of online county records.
A person named Sal Dilorenzo is among the defendants rounded up in the alleged scheme, but authorities have yet to reveal how the probe landed them here.
Authorities never said what they were looking for or if they found anything last year, but it appears they’re looking for evidence again.
News 12 reached out to Sal Dilorenzo’s attorney, Andrew Lankler, who says the farms have no connection to his client and are owned by a separate Dilorenzo family. Lankler says the case is in the early stages of court proceedings and that he's waiting for discovery from federal prosecutors.
