This is all I have for Outfit-related news that came after Sarno was first indicted in May 2009 -

In September 2009, Chicago LCN member Rudolph "Uncle Rudy" Fratto was indicted in Chicago on charges of tax evasion.

In December 2009, 10-12 locations on the South Side were raided for video poker machines, which were tied to the late Outfit member Joseph "Shorty" LaMantia.

In March 2010, Chicago LCN member Rudolph "Uncle Rudy" Fratto and an associate were indicted in Chicago on charges of mail fraud involving a contract bid-rigging scheme to provide forklift trucks for local trade shows.

In April 2010, Chicago LCN member James Inendino was investigated regarding his operations outside a local currency exchange.

In April 2010, it was reported that the family-owned bank of a Democratic Senate candidate, Alexi Giannoulis, had loaned $20 million to Chicago LCN associates Michael Giorango and Demitri Stavropoulos; who had prior convictions for bookmaking and running a prostitution ring. Stavropolous would later be identified in November 2011 as a $5,000 a week consultant to the politically connected Polekatz strip club.

In April 2010, as well as a superseding indictment in January 2011, 3 Chicago LCN connected burglars, Joseph Scalise, Robert Pullia, and Arthur Rachel, were were indicted in Chicago on charges of racketeering conspiracy to rob both a bank and the home of late Chicago LCN member Angelo "The Hook" LaPietra.

In August 2010, Anthony Boscarino was indicted in Tuscon, AZ on charges of wire fraud, money laundering, mail fraud, tax evasion, and firearms involving an internet gambling investment scam that took $7.7 million from investors.

In December 2010, the All Stars strip club, owned by Chicago LCN associate William "Billy" Galioto, caught fire. Organized crime experts said that the club had been struggling financially and had several tax liens.
