The GPS tracking device was found under the car of a well-known NYC gangster after he was executed


Federal agencies investigating a mob hit in New York City reportedly found a GPS locator under the victim's car.

Respected mafia employee Sylvster (Sally Daz) Zottola, 71, was in the car when he was killed in October at a McDonald's in the Bronx. His 41-year-old son survived an attempted execution in July, which was arrested in front of the camera.

The prosecution told a judge on Friday that they had a surveillance video featuring Zottola's suspected killers coming and going from a location where the GPS device was activated six days before the murder, the New York Post reported

The hit may have been raided by Albanian gangsters who intimidated Zottola's "Joker Poker" video game bats, the paper said.

Five alleged members of Bloods Street Gang were charged with murder.

Defense lawyers filed a lawsuit challenging the closure of the government for delaying the Justice Department's decision to seek capital punishment if the case is brought to court, the newspaper said.

Newsday reported that the GPS device claim failed to generate a statement from one of the defendants' lawyers before a public court.

The older Zottola had longstanding relationships with Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano, the former head of the Bonanno crime family in New York City, according to the newspaper.
