Two of the 11 Hudson Valley residents who were charged Thursday in a massive mob bust have been characterized as "prolific offenders," by Rockland District Attorney Thomas Zugibe, according to a report by lohud.com.

Pasquale "Patsy" Parrello of Tuckahoe reportedly participated in the illegal activities in spite of being under Federal supervision as a result a past mob-connected conviction, lohud.com said.

Parrello, the highest-ranking Genovese mobster arrested in that case, allegedly received cash from operators of an illegal gambling club in Yonkers and directed other crimes, including the brutal assault of a man panhandling near his business, the report said.

Stony Point resident Anthony "Harpo" DePalma, another area resident indicted on Thursday, has also previously been arrested.

He is alleged to have run gambling and loansharking entities from a since-closed Mr. Tony's Barbershop in Haverstraw, said the report.

DePalma is one of two Rockland residents involved in the bust, along with Paul Cassano of Nanuet.

In all, 11 residents from either Westchester, Putnam or Rockland are among 46 people charged in the massive bust.

Also charged on Thursday were Yonkers residents Agostino, Camacho, Mitchell Fusco, Vincent Terracciano and Joseph Tomanelli, Brewster resident Anthony Vazzano, Nanuet resident Paul Cassano, Stony Point resident Anthony DePalma, Pelham resident Richard LaCava, Scarsdale native Mark Maiuzzo, Mount Vernon resident Bradford Wedra. Each faces up to 20 years in prison.
