So much for organized crime being a thing of the past in Kansas City …

Organized crime in Kansas City may not be dead (although a long way from the city’s bloody history). In a story hidden away in this morning’s Local section, The Kansas City Star reported that the FBI served several search warrants yesterday at the Northland homes of people who “have been investigated in the past for organized crime in Kansas City.”  That’s what a law enforcement source told the Star, adding that the investigation may be part of a federal gambling probe.

I called Don Ledford, spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, and he confirmed that no one’s been arrested and no charges have been filed with the investigation yet.
