HACKENSACK, N.J. - Authorities are announcing arrests in a New Jersey organized crime investigation that seized more than $5 million.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office says 42 individuals were involved in racketeering, gambling, money laundering and drugs.

The group operated in Bergen, Hudson, Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Authorities say several of the suspects controlled a large-scale illegal gambling ring that is allegedly controlled by members of the Genovese organized crime family.

Authorities say the gambling probe eventually uncovered a widespread drug distribution network.
