A fascinating conversation with former FBI Agent Jack Garcia who shares his experiences on the cases he worked on in his 24 years working undercover. Now the owner of the Undercover Academy....
You'll hear how he infiltrated the Gambino family and why it was his most challenging case. Born in Havana and a self-professed eater of rice and beans, Jack was able to separate his Hispanic roots to work as Jack Falcone. In his 26 years of service with the FBI and as an undercover FBI Agent in over 100 major Undercover operations, Jack Garcia is best known for his undercover role as “Jack Falcone,” a self-described Sicilian jewel thief and drug dealer from Miami, Florida, who infiltrated the Gambino crime family of La Cosa Nostra in New York for nearly three years. The case resulted in the arrest and conviction of 39 mobsters, including the top members of the Post John Gotti Gambino crime family.
