Thomas “Tommy Karate” Morello is a known Australian crime boss, believed to have links to the Calabrian clans operating in Italy. He’s known as a top narcotics man with links to Colombian drug cartels and is rumored that he and his crime family dominate the cocaine market in Australia. This lucrative business is reportedly making him millions due to the high price of cocaine, but with the heat from both local and the Australian Federal Police increasing, he’s decided to move his operations to the United States.
Rumor is that he arrived in New York City within the last few weeks and is using his connections to bosses in America to set up a new base for his own Crime Family that was reportedly set up with a handful of loyal men he brought with him from back home. Though he portrays himself to be a legitimate businessman with interests in construction, trucking, shipping, as well as owning multiple restaurants and grocery stores, the Feds in New York and back in Australia believe these businesses are all fronts set up to provide him with a method of showing a legal means of income as well as to launder his money and transport his drugs easily across the globe.
One of his men, Frank LoCascio, has been seen roaming the predominantly Italian neighborhoods of New York, such as Howard Beach in Queens as well as Bensonhurst in Brooklyn, attempting to recruit men for the Family. With things at the moment seeming relatively calm in the streets of the American Mafia, newer Families are starting to appear and are hoping to carve out a piece of the pie and possibly become one of the top dogs on their own!
