A wanted top mobster turned himself in after his son posted a photo of him in Florida on social media 😂

Mob life ain't what it used to be; there was a time when a wiseguy could evade the authorities fairly easily, but now with social media it's hard for a fella to slip under the radar, ya know?

A high-ranking member of the Colombo crime family wanted in a federal racketeering case surrendered Friday — one day after his son posted a photo to Twitter of him standing in a glistening swimming pool in Florida.

Ralph DiMatteo, the clan's alleged consigliere, turned himself into the FBI at 26 Federal Plaza in Manhattan, according to Brooklyn prosecutors.

The 66-year-old mobster took off to Florida one day before the feds busted his 13-co-defendants on racketeering, extortion and other raps related to the infiltration of a Queens labor union.

Whoops! Well, at the very least, he apparently got to spend some time with his son before getting put in cuffs. Mobsters get a bad rap, but apparently—even when he's on the run!—Ralph DiMatteo understands the importance of family bonding.
