Events of GTA IV
Luca, along with the other members of his sub-crew (Joseph DiLeo and Johnny Barbosa), were introduced in the GTAIV mission Taking in the Trash in which Ray sends Niko to assist them in picking up the Diamonds that Johnny Klebitz left in two Algonquin trashbags in the TLAD mission Diamonds in the Rough (which took place at the same time as the TBOGT mission Frosting on the Cake). The foursome were ambushed by unidentified attackers (potentially Gay Tony associates), but escaped. After escaping, Dileo along with the other members betrayed Boccino and Bellic by taking the money for themselves (mentioning that they were planning to go to Las Venturas; but Niko killed them and reclaimed the Diamonds for Ray.
