Biker Gangs in Germany: Hell's Angels and Bandidos Agree to a Truce - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

Tuesday, 25 May 2010

Biker Gangs in Germany: Hell's Angels and Bandidos Agree to a Truce - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International: "the Hell's Angels and Bandidos are arranging a truce in Germany. For over a year the two biker gangs have been involved in violent conflict. But on Wednesday a ceasefire will be sealed with a handshake in Hanover.
At the end of April, the biker gangs Hell's Angels and Bandidos were banned in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein -- a result of a rash of violent incidents between the two groups in the recent past. This month, other German states were considering following suit.
Now, though, that may no longer be necessary. The two gangs, sworn enemies who have been involved in an escalating conflict over control of various criminal activities and terrain since early 2009, said on Monday that they want to make peace.
The truce -- agreed to by the vice president of the Bandidos in Europe, Peter M. and Frank H., the president of the Hell's Angels Charters in Hanover -- will be sealed 'by a handshake' on Wednesday in a lawyer's office in Hanover."

leader of one of Europe's most notorious biker gangs is facing a prison sentence after being found guilty of drug offences.

Friday, 21 May 2010

Stuart Dawson, known as Dink, was convicted of conspiracy to supply class B drugs at Caernarfon Crown Court.
He is the Europe and Asia head of the Outlaws gang and was found guilty after extensive surveillance work in his stronghold of Colwyn Bay.
It was from there that he oversaw the rapid growth of the gang as it challenged bitter rivals the Hells Angels in its heartland.
The feud led to the murder of Hells Angel Gerry Tobin on the M40.
He was shot by Outlaws who were angry that a rival festival had been held in Warwickshire, an area they considered to be their turf.
After the shooting the killers were in contact with the Outlaws hierarchy within minutes.
Outlaws and Hells Angels also clashed at Birmingham Airport, using machetes and iron bars to attack each other in the arrivals hall.

Dink ran the Outlaws from his chapter's clubhouse in Colwyn Bay, but travelled widely overseeing the setting up of new chapters all over the world.
It is thought he spent £200,000 in the last ten years on foreign travel, but his undoing came just a few miles from home.
Detectives noticed a pattern in phone calls between high-ranking Outlaws prior to drugs deals.
On the last occasion, Dink was present. Amphetamines worth £20,000 had been sold.
Last year Dink spoke exclusively to Sky News, denying police assertions that he was the head of one of Europe's biggest organised crime gangs.
Detectives believe Outlaws are involved in drug dealing, murder, prostitution and extortion across the world.
Last July Dink told me: "If any of our members have done anything wrong they've been duly punished for it.
"It's ridiculous to say we're an organised crime group, we're disorganised really, we're just different."
The Outlaws gang was established in 1935 in Chicago.

Prosecutors had jailed the man two weeks ago for withholding information, believing he knew the gang member was behind the crime but was afraid to say anything."

Wednesday, 19 May 2010

Project Divide sting leads to additional jail time - Winnipeg Free Press: "Ryan Cory Sawatzky admitted Tuesday to selling two ounces of poor quality cocaine to a long-time biker associate who was actually working undercover for the police.
Sawatzky, 28, was given 33 months behind bars, in addition to six months of time already spent in custody under a joint-recommendation from Crown and defence lawyers. He was one of 31 people arrested last December as part of 'Project Divide' and is the seventh to plead guilty.
Crown attorney Mark Lafreniere said Sawatzky was caught on camera delivering the drugs to the secret agent outside his home last November. Sawatzky had been a prospect with the Zig Zag Crew, which is the feeder crew to the Hells Angels, but had turned in his vest weeks earlier in an apparent bid at a fresh start in life.
He quickly got pulled back in when the agent, Michael Satsatin, came looking $150 in unpaid dues that he still owed, court was told. Sawatzky agreed to eliminate his debt by selling the cocaine, which had been severely diluted by cutting agents and was only seven per cent pure."

Cop acquitted of leaking documents to Hells Angels

Bikers Of America, Know Your Rights!: Cop acquitted of leaking documents to Hells Angels: "Although some of Dean Rudge's actions were questionable, Judge Harrison Arrell says he was unable to determine without a reasonable doubt that the Niagara Regional Police constable was responsible for leaking confidential information to the Hells Angels. In a Welland courtroom Thursday, Rudge was acquitted of a breach of trust by a public officer charge stemming from his April 2007 arrest.
The 47-year-old has been with the NRPS since 1985. He pleaded not guilty to the charge in February of this year and chose to be judged solely by judge. Rudge was an officer working out of the Port Colborne detachment when police were investigating the Hells Angels through Project Tandem. When raids were executed throughout southern Ontario and in Niagara in 2006, police found that members of the gang were in possession of confidential documents including police memos about the ongoing investigation and information about the rival Outlaws motorcycle gang considering a return to Niagara."

Rival biker gangs brawl in Minneiska

Rival biker gangs brawl in Minneiska: "eight members of the Hells Angels and Outlaws motorcycle clubs fought about 2 p.m. Saturday in the parking lots of the Eagle View Bar and Grill and Buck's Bar and Grill, while scores of other bikers watched, Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude said.
No one involved in the fight would speak to police, so no citations were written for the brawl, though two people were cited for possessing brass knuckles.
The two bars are stops during the annual Spring Flood Run, which was held Saturday and commemorates when bikers helped save the area from flooding in 1965.
It was unclear Monday if the rival gangs were in Minneiska on Saturday for the run; bikers generally don't make their way to the Winona area until later in the day, Ganrude said.
Deputies were dispatched after a report that several motorcycle gang members were beating up a person outside the bars, Ganrude said. When deputies arrived, they learned a large group of bikers involved in the fight had left and were driving south on Hwy. 61."
