    The New York Daily News reports:

    The informant and undercover agents working with him hired various members of the team to transport slot machines that the cops believed had been stolen on the way to a casino.

    They took a cache of guns, including M-16 rifles and handguns that had their serial numbers defaced, across state lines.

    Some of them even used a bolt cutter to break into tractor-trailers filled with cigarettes, which they then drove from Virginia to New York.
