NotesPrinted under cartoon: 100 police accused in swoop on 'Mafia men' From Sydney Young in New York: More than 100 policemen suspected of collaborating with the Mafia have been ordered to appear before a grand jury in New York. They were caught in the same net as more than 500 suspected Mafia members who were also handed grand jury warrants during Monday's swoop. Evidence against them was collected by police "spies" who taped conversations and telephone calls coming from an alleged "Mafia headquarters" - a caravan parked in a Brooklyn car-breaker's yard. The conversations were picked up by a tiny electronic "bug" smuggled into the caravan by a daring undercover agent. As a result, more than 1,200 policemen swooped on homes in New York handing out the warrants. Hasty conferences were being held yesterday between the alleged "Godfathers" and their lawyers.
