In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agent Joaquin "Jack" Garcia reviews several of his early undercover roles and his final role infiltrating the New York mob as "Jack Falcone." During this UCA role, Jack played a self-described Sicilian jewel thief and drug dealer from Miami, Florida. In New York, after gaining the trust of mobster Greg DePalma, Jack was able to penetrate the Gambino crime family for nearly three years. The case resulted in the arrest and conviction of 35 mobsters, including the top members of the Gambino crime family. Jack played his undercover role so convincingly that he was proposed for membership into La Cosa Nostra. Jack served in the FBI for 26 years. During his career, he was assigned to the Newark, San Juan, Philadelphia, and New York Divisions. However, for 24 out of his 26 years of service he traveled all around the country successfully working undercover in over 100 FBI operations.
