He's considered by many to be the most prolific undercover operative in FBI history. One of his big cases was described by the FBI Director in New York as "perhaps the most significant and successful undercover operation in law enforcement history." Big Frankie also infiltrated the Vegas underworld as a shady manager and fixer of fights, so that he could expose corruption in boxing at the highest levels.
During Ari's long career as an FBI agent, he worked Group One undercover operations, the most sensitive kind.
Jay was born in Queens to a reform Jewish family that wanted him to become a doctor or a stockbroker. But he always wanted to be a cop. So he earned his shield in Bronx Narcotics and then got his dream posting with the NYPD’s elite Organized Crime Investigative Division. Soon after, he became an undercover, and a make-believe Italian, and then infiltrated the Lucchese and Bonanno families.
Rob was with the FBI, where he handled a number of high profile cases, including the Quest crisis (he told that story recently on FBI True) as well as multiple stints undercover. For years, he lived undercover in the Miami underworld, while targeting and befriending a kingpin named Boca Bob.
Here is the FBI True trailer...
Here are some clips from a recent zoom chat, about his undercover adventures while targeting Boca Bob...
