43-year-old Robert Tutokey was arrested Tuesday at his residence in Mesa. He allegedly helped Paul Merle Eischeid, one of the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted Fugitives, escape the country.

Thursday, 31 March 2011



43-year-old Robert Tutokey was arrested Tuesday at his residence in Mesa. He allegedly helped Paul Merle Eischeid, one of the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted Fugitives, escape the country.

Tutokey has been charged with misuse of a passport, and providing false statements in application and use of a passport.

Officials allege that Tutokey obtained a passport in his name and allowed Eischeid to use it when fleeing the country in 2004.

Eischeid was wanted in the 2001 murder of a Phoenix woman. The Hells Angels member is also accused of drug trafficking and violating the RICO statutes.

10 years ago, Cynthia Garcia was attacked and severely beaten while attending a party at the Hells Angels clubhouse in Mesa, Ariz. She was thrown in the trunk of a car, taken to the desert, stabbed and left for dead.

Eischeid was indicted on drug trafficking, RICO violations, kidnapping, and murder charges, along with several additional Hells Angels members.

He was arrested in 2003, and due to his career as a Charles Schwab stockbroker and relatively clean criminal record, he was released on his own recognizance and put on house arrest.

But Eischeid removed his monitoring device and fled Arizona.

In 2007, U.S. Marshals added him to the 15 Most Wanted List.

Eischeid was apprehended in Buenos Aires in February. He is currently in custody in Argentina pending extradition to the United States.

Chop shop operator, outlaw motorcycle gang member arrested in Perris



Todd Payne, 36, was arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen firearms, illegal possession of assault rifles and operating a chop shop in his Perris home.


An outlaw motorcycle gang member was arrested for allegedly running a chop shop, and his dog was shot and killed by officers when it attacked while authorities served a search warrant at the 36-year-old’s home in Perris Tuesday morning, a sheriff’s sergeant said.

Officers from the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force and the West County Narcotics Task Force arrested Todd Payne on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen firearms, illegal possession of assault rifles and operating a chop shop after the 7:40 a.m. search warrant in the 24000 block of El Baquero Road, in an unincorporated area of Perris, Sgt. Sean Brown said in a news release.

Officers found multiple stolen motorcycle parts, gang paraphernalia and a total of 16 firearms, including one that was reported stolen during a residential burglary in December, Brown said.

During the search, a large mixed-breed dog at the home attacked a police dog, forcing officers to shoot the dog, in defense of the police dog and other officers in the area, Brown said.

The attacking dog was killed and the police dog is recovering from its injuries, Brown said. No one was injured during the investigation.

Payne was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center, but bail information was not immediately available

Gun stash linked to bikie gang Notorious,

Wednesday, 30 March 2011


In raids targeting the outlaw motorcycle gang, Notorious, police have seized a number of guns including a Soviet assault rifle.

Officers raided a storage unit at Castle Hill in Sydney's north-west yesterday.

They also found a sawn-off shotgun, a second rifle and about a thousand rounds of ammunition.

Detectives believe at least one of the guns had been used in recent shootings.

outlaw biker allegedly running a "chop shop" at his Perris residence, where illegal guns and drugs were stored, was arrested today - - but not before his dog attacked a police dog and was shot and killed, a Riverside County sheriff's sergeant said.

Todd Payne, 36, was taken into custody by members of the county's regional Gang Task Force around 8 a.m. at a house in the 24000 block of El Baquero Road, according to Sgt. Sean Brown.

Brown said Payne, who belongs to an outlaw motorcycle gang, which Brown did not identify, was arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, stolen firearms and assault rifles.

Payne was also dealing in stolen auto parts at the location, according to Brown.

"A total of 16 firearms were recovered, one of which was reported stolen during a residential burglary in December," Brown said. "Officers also recovered multiple stolen motorcycle parts, meth and gang paraphernalia."

According to Brown, during their raid, a large mixed breed dog on the property attacked a police dog, prompting task force members to shot and kill the aggressive animal.

The police dog was treated by a veterinarian and is doing fine, Brown said. No other injuries were reported.

Payne was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center, but bail information was not immediately available.

CONVICTED heroin dealer from Melbourne with links to a notorious motorcycle gang has been indicted by a grand jury and refused bail after buying three pistols in Arizona.

Sunday, 27 March 2011

Melbourne (City Guide)CONVICTED heroin dealer from Melbourne with links to a notorious motorcycle gang has been indicted by a grand jury and refused bail after buying three pistols in Arizona.

Elie Malkoun, 53, was deemed a ''flight risk'' after allegedly failing to reveal his criminal background on a US visa application.

Malkoun was arrested last Sunday when he attended a gun show and purchased three weapons: a Smith and Wesson 9 millimetre pistol; a Sig Sauer .45 calibre pistol; and a Colt model Mustang Pocket Light .38 calibre pistol.
He was visiting the US on a 90-day tourist visa, which made it illegal for him to buy the guns.

Malkoun has pleaded not guilty to a federal charge of possessing firearms while holding a US visa that did not allow him to do so and his trial is set for May 3.

On Friday, when he was refused bail, Malkoun appeared in the District Court in Phoenix in an orange prison jumpsuit, with ankles and wrists shackled.

Malkoun and his brother, Amad ''Jay'' Malkoun, were caught in 1988 with $5.5 million worth of heroin after raids in Melbourne and Perth.

They received 18-year prison sentences for what was regarded as Victoria's biggest drug smuggling syndicate at the time.

A former kick-boxer and strip club manager, Amad Malkoun was appointed president of the Comancheros bikie gang when they moved to Melbourne in 2009. He refused to comment about his brother's arrest when contacted by The Sunday Age yesterday.

In evidence presented in an Arizona court, Malkoun also allegedly tried to buy another gun with a laser sight and ''extended capacity magazine'' in a Mesa, Arizona, sports store.

After store employees refused to sell him the weapon because he had only Australian identification, he allegedly offered more money but was again refused, according to a US prosecutor. He then went to the store's car park and allegedly asked other shoppers if they would buy the gun for him.

Agents from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives first detected Malkoun at the gun show, and have launched an investigation into his movements in the US.

He is believed to have landed in Los Angeles on March 13 and travelled to Mexico for six days, before returning to the US in a rental car. He is understood to have been on the way to Las Vegas.

When arrested, he was carrying Victorian and New South Wales driver licences, which had different names, addresses and dates of birth.

Rock Machine is paving the way for another violent outlaw motorcycle club - the Bandidos - to launch a foray into WA.


Police sources this week told The Sunday Times there was a real possibility the Bandidos could infiltrate the state, given their close ties to the Rock Machine. Detectives are intently monitoring interaction between the two gangs.

The revelation comes as tensions escalate between the Rock Machine and rival gang the Rebels, with WA Rebels leader Nick Martin being shot last week and tattoo shops firebombed, bikies assaulted and a massive stash of explosives seized in recent months.

On Thursday, Gang Crime detectives uncovered high-powered weapons during dawn raids on the homes of Rebels and Rock Machine members across Perth.

Some of the guns were found within arm's reach of bikies as police smashed through front doors, heightening concerns of retaliation attacks in the tit-for-tat motorcycle gang war.
"We are concerned about outlaw motorcycle gangs nationalising and internationalising ... linking with other clubs, and patching over, which is another process they engage in," Assistant Commissioner Nick Anticich said yesterday.

In 2000, Rock Machine members in Canada voted to "patch over" to the US-based Bandidos after a bloody seven-year turf war with arch rivals, the Hells Angels.

The feud led to the deaths of 162 people.

Police sources said the "patching over" appeared to be an attempt by the Rock Machine to gain protection from the Bandidos and an end to the war with the Hells Angels. But some Rock Machine members defected to other clubs, unhappy about the move.

While police say WA is the only state in Australia with known Rock Machine members, the Bandidos have a presence in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, but no membership in WA.

In 1984, six bikies were killed along with a 14-year-old bystander when Bandidos and Comancheros were involved in a shoot-out in south-west Sydney.

Det-Supt Charlie Carver, head of the Serious and Organised Crime Division, said criminal syndicates and interstate bikie gangs had long sought to capitalise on WA's rich economy.

Rock Machine, Finks and Comancheros chapters had set up in recent years.

A man has died after a shooting at a tattoo parlour in Sydney's northwest.

Ravensburger Sydney Opera House - 1000 Piece PuzzleA man has died after a shooting at a tattoo parlour in Sydney's northwest.

Police were called to the parlour on Victoria Road in West Ryde about 9.50pm (AEDT) on Saturday and found a 40-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

He was shot after two men with their faces disguised entered the premises via a rear lane.


Several other people inside the tattoo parlour at the time were not hurt.

Paramedics treated the wounded man at the scene and then took him to the Royal North Shore Hospital, where he died later.

Police are looking for two men, one of whom is described as about 183cm tall, of medium build. At the time he was wearing a black bandanna over his face and a grey hooded top.

suspected member of the Rock Machine biker gang has been charged in connection to a police-involved shooting in Winnipeg

Saturday, 26 March 2011

suspected member of the Rock Machine biker gang has been charged in connection to a police-involved shooting in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old man, Ashley Sandison, had been wanted after an incident on Atlantic Avenue in the city's North End on Tuesday.

The manhunt began at about 3:30 p.m. when an officer fired his weapon while responding to a domestic dispute behind a home in the 700 block of Atlantic, near Sinclair Street.

Sandison then fled the scene in a pickup truck, ramming a police cruiser on multiple occasions, police said.

The truck was later found abandoned on Mandalay Bay in The Maples neighbourhood.

Sandison turned himself in at the Public Safety Building on Thursday afternoon.

He has been charged with several domestic related offences including failure to comply with the conditions of a recognizance, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while disqualified, assaulting a peace officer (two counts) and assault with a weapon (two counts).

He is detained in custody.

Atlantic Avenue residents told CBC News on Tuesday that they heard up to four shots but police have only confirmed an officer fired at least one shot.

Police have not said what prompted the confrontation but there were no reports of injuries.

Bail has been granted for one of two men police say are associated with the Outlaws biker gang.



But Mark Cleary, of Peterborough, will remain in custody at the Central East Correctional Centre until an approved surety is found.

A justice of the peace approved releasing the 29-year-old on $25,000 no-deposit bail on Friday.

Bail was denied for Cleary's co-accused Keith Nolan, 36, of Richmond Hill on March 18.

Nolan and Cleary were charged following a single-vehicle collision on Hunter St. E., in front of the Quaker Oats office building on March 11.

A publication ban prevents reporting any evidence heard during Friday's hearing.

Cleary will appear in court Tuesday by video to see if a surety has been found.

Cleary is charged with impaired driving, breach of probation, careless storage of a firearm, occupying a vehicle while a firearm is present, possession of a restricted firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon and possession of a controlled substance.

Nolan is charged with careless storage of a firearm, occupying a vehicle while a firearm is present, possession of a restricted firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon and possession of a controlled substance.

Strike Force Raptor officers have arrested an alleged Outlaw Motorcycle Gang member and seized firearms at St Marys.


About 7:35am today (Friday 25 March 2011), a search warrant was executed at a home in Moira Crescent.

He’s been granted conditional bail to appear in Penrith Local Court on 11 April 2011.

Investigations are continuing.

Strike Force Raptor was established by the State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad and is a proactive and high-impact operation targeting outlaw motorcycle gangs and their alleged associated criminal enterprises.

suspected member of the Rock Machine biker gang is being sought in connection to a police-involved shooting

Thursday, 24 March 2011

suspected member of the Rock Machine biker gang is being sought in connection to a police-involved shooting in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

The manhunt began at about 3:30 p.m. when an officer fired his weapon while responding to a domestic dispute behind a home on Atlantic Avenue near Sinclair Street.

Area residents told CBC News they heard up to four shots but police spokeswoman Const. Natalie Aitken could only confirm an officer fired at least one shot into the rear of a home in the 700 block of Atlantic.

Police have not said what prompted the confrontation but there were no reports of injuries.

"They attended and it was very quickly that this incident occurred. So, what happened just prior to the firearm discharge and subsequently what happened after is certainly going to be part of this investigation," Aitken said.

The suspect took off in a pickup truck and hit cruiser cars and possibly other vehicles on his way, she noted.

The truck was later found abandoned on Mandalay Bay in the Maples neighbourhood. It had a bullet hole in it and the passenger-side window had been smashed out. It's still unclear how the truck was damaged.

Network Ten has commissioned a mini-series based on Australia's infamous Milperra massacre.


Bikie Wars: Brothers In Arms enters the closed world of Sydney's motorcycle gangs to tell the true story of two men's journey from loyalty to rivalry and then to tragedy.
It is based on the best-selling book Brothers In Arms by late ABC reporter Sandra Harvey and Lindsay Simpson.
The six-part program will be produced by Showtime and the creative team includes writer and executive producer Greg Haddick, who has worked on Underbelly, The Society Murders and Cloud Street, and Roger Simpson, who has worked on Satisfaction, Stingers and Halifax FP.
"This event mini-series will shine a light on this fascinating tribal culture and its code of honour - as intriguing now as it was when the word Milperra became synonymous with one of our blackest days," Ten's chief programming officer David Mott said.
Bike Wars: Brothers In Arms will go to air in 2012.

70 bikie gang members descended on Geelong Court for the sentencing of the Bedson brothers.

New Kakadu Rugged Geelong Hat Rust LargeTENSIONS ran high both in and outside court as more than 70 bikie gang members descended on Geelong Court for the sentencing of the Bedson brothers.

Sentencing was delayed for more than an hour as onlookers formed a lengthy queue, and were individually scanned with metal detectors and had bags and identification checked before being allowed into the packed courtroom.


Rival gang members largely ignored each other, instead directing their frustrations towards members of the public queuing for entry.

The upper foyer of the courtroom was swarming with Victoria Police and uniformed court security staff, but the benefits were questionable as bikies openly intimidated and swore at members of the public.

One bikie told the queuing people that gang members were pushing through, saying: "If you have a problem with that, you have a problem with me".

Security staff ejected one bikie but allowed the rest to barge their way in. Once inside the courtroom, both smartly-dressed Bedson brothers avoided eye contact with the dozens of affiliates who had come to witness their fate.

Gasps echoed around the room as John Bedson was sentenced to 23 years jail, but Bedson himself remained stoic, merely blinking hard and swaying slightly at the news.

As the brothers were led away, supporters called to them, promising an appeal, but their encouragement was greeted with silence from two young men resigned to a future behind bars.

Michael "Madman" Pedini has been sentenced to 63 months in federal prison

Wednesday, 23 March 2011

Michael "Madman" Pedini has been sentenced to 63 months in federal prison, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
Pedini, a former state and national enforcer in the Outlaw's Motorcycle Gang, pleaded guilty last September to one count of racketeering and one count of conspiracy to commit violence in aid of racketeering.
Pedini was involved in the ambush shooting of a member of the Hells Angels in Clinton in 2009.

Walls come down at the Coffin Cheaters' headquarters in Bayswater.




The Coffin Cheaters motorcycle gang has begun removing fortification around their Bayswater headquarters, two days early.

The bikers had been given four weeks to remove heavily-fortified walls after being issued a fortifications removal notice in February.

Today heavy wooden panels were being replaced with see-through security mesh.

The headquarters is the second to be tackled using anti-fortification laws through exceptional powers granted to police by the Corruption and Crime Commission.

WA Police applied to the CCC on the grounds the fortress-style walls surrounding the premises and its structural design were beyond the norm and the headquarters was utilised by a significant number of people reasonably believed to be involved in organised crime. 

The owners of the Raleigh Road premises, Cheetah Investments Pty Ltd, were given the chance to respond, which they did through lawyers, and police have since pushed ahead with their demands to remove fortification from the premises.

Although the owners had seven days to appeal the decision in the Supreme Court, they instead brokered a deal with police and are now complying with the conditions set out in the notice.

Assistant Commissioner for Crime, Nick Anticich, previously said Cheetah Investments had until March 25 to modify and remove fortifications to the satisfaction of the Police Commissioner or else they would be altered by police.

A rival gang, the Gypsy Jokers, also had their fortress-style walls pulled down at their Maddington headquarters after their appeal to the High Court failed.

POLICE raided nine homes simultaneously yesterday as detectives dismantled several elaborate clandestine drug laboratories believed to be supplying associates of an outlaw motorcycle gang.

Wednesday, 16 March 2011

POLICE raided nine homes simultaneously yesterday as detectives dismantled several elaborate clandestine drug laboratories believed to be supplying associates of an outlaw motorcycle gang.

Six men were arrested in the raids when officers from the Asian crime squad and tactical operations unit allegedly uncovered methylamphetamine labs in Marrickville and Homebush about 7am.

Two men were later charged with drug and firearm offences after detectives allegedly seized a number of unregistered firearms, including a .38 calibre revolver, replica pistol, air rifle, a 9mm automatic pistol and eight double shot key-ring pistols, as well as fake credit cards and cash.

Quantities of heroin, cannabis, methylamphetamines and the drug ice were also allegedly seized.

Police with sledgehammers executed the search warrants on homes in Marrickville, Strathfield, Wattle Grove, Villawood, Homebush and Hinchinbrook.



The 21-year-old man from Wattle Grove is believed to be an associate of the Rebels bikie gang, police alleged.

Asian crime squad commander Detective Superintendent Scott Cook said the raids had "put a significant dent" in the organised network.

"All these men ... are part of one big network syndicate," he said.

The arrests follow a four-month investigation.

A 32-year-old from Strathfield and a 28-year-old from Villawood were both refused bail yesterday and will face court again later this month.

major drug bust on the Headhunters' Auckland headquarters saw police recover more than $1 million worth of methamphetamine yesterday.

Tuesday, 15 March 2011

major drug bust on the Headhunters' Auckland headquarters saw police recover more than $1 million worth of methamphetamine yesterday.

Eight suspected gang members were arrested and appeared in Waitakere District Court charged with drug possession and supply offences.

Court officials refused to reveal anything more about the appearances but the suspects have been ordered to reappear tomorrow. It came just hours after 240 police and Air Force personnel uncovered a "warehouse" full of weapons in a raid on the emerging Red Devils gang in Nelson.

A police spokeswoman said 28 people were arrested, and pipe bombs, motorbikes, shotguns and rifles confiscated.

Police said the operation had dealt a blow to the gang, who are affiliated to the Hells Angels.

Air Force personnel flew police from the North Island to Nelson. The Air Force also put their bomb disposal unit on standby. The spokeswoman said a complex and committed undercover operation helped bust the Red Devils.

"We had one of our own embedded in their organisation. We were listening in to their most intimate conversations," the spokeswoman said.

The raids were said to be unrelated to those on the Auckland Headhunters, though police have been co-ordinating many anti-gang efforts at a national level.


Two suspects appeared in the Nelson District Court on Friday and were bailed. The spokeswoman said these two were "bit-part players".

A further 17 suspects appeared yesterday and were remanded in custody.

The spokeswoman described those arrested as "a motley crew" ranging in age from about 30 to their late 50s.

Police say they are conscious of the fact other aspiring gangsters may fill the void created by the mass arrests, so their focus will "now turn to like-minded groups".

One of those groups are apparent Red Devils allies the Hells Angels, the world's oldest and biggest bikie gang.

Police continued tormenting the Angels yesterday afternoon, shadowing an Angels poker run in the scenic Tasman region. While police appeared pleased with the poker run operation, it was largely a symbolic gesture, with no reported arrests.

Another gang police seem to be watching closely are the Rebel Motorcycle Club, recent arrivals from Australia.

The Rebels' entry into local gang life attracted publicity in January, when Police Minister Judith Collins and a senior detective from the Organised and Financial Crime Agency publicly threatened to annihilate the Rebels.

Police followed up her rhetoric quickly when guns, bikes, cars, drugs, cash and gang patches were seized from the Rebels in raids in February.

This week's Upper South Island raids were bigger still.

The police spokeswoman says these clampdowns are "a clear indication" of hardened police resolve in tackling organised crime.

Red Devils, a "puppet gang" of the Hells Angels.

Friday, 11 March 2011

NEW ZEALAND police seized explosives, drugs and firearms in a series of dawn raids on biker gangs today following an 18-month undercover investigation, officials said.

An air force Hercules flew 90 officers to the South Island town of Nelson, where they used a backhoe to smash their way into the headquarters of the Red Devils, a "puppet gang" of the Hells Angels.

Another 150 officers raided more than 30 properties in the South Island and Auckland, including the Hells Angels' headquarters, Supt Gary Knowles said.

Knowles said the operation, in which undercover police officers joined the gangs and gained access to their fortified headquarters, was a "huge" blow to the Hells Angels' plans to expand operations in New Zealand.

"The Hells Angels are part of a global crime organisation and the fact that we were able to infiltrate them will send a ripple around the world," he said.



Twenty-eight people were arrested and charged with a range of drug offences and being members of an organised crime gang.

Knowles said the discovery of pipe bombs among the bikers' weaponry showed the gangs had "raised the stakes" in attempts to increase their criminal activities, saying such devices were intended only to kill or maim.

"The fact they are now manufacturing explosive devices to be used against members of the public underpins the danger these criminals pose to this community," he said.

Knowles said the operation exploded the myth put forward by the Red Devils and their legal representatives that they were simply a social club for motorcycle enthusiasts and had no links to the Hells Angels.

"These gangs are not a bunch of good old boys with bikes, they are organised criminals," he said.

"What we have revealed today is the extent of the gang's firearms trading, the work they have done to develop drug supply lines, extortion, burglaries and moving stolen property around the country."

The operation follows raids last month on dozens of properties linked to the Rebels biker gang, an Australian group police say are also trying to expand in New Zealand.

Police Minister Judith Collins said police and the government would "use every tool at their disposal" to close down the gangs.

Police in New Zealand made dawn raids on biker gangs

Police in New Zealand made dawn raids on biker gangs on Friday, seizing drugs, explosives and weapons including pipe bombs.

More than 30 properties were raided in the North Island city of Auckland and across the South Island.

Properties searched included the headquarters of the Hell's Angels.

Twenty-eight people were arrested and charged with a range of offences.

Superintendent Gary Knowles says the operation took 18 months to plan.

He called it a huge blow to Hell's Angels plans to expand operations in New Zealand.

He says the discovery of pipe bombs suggests the group was willing to main or kill members of the public.

two alleged members of the notorious Mongols biker gang accused of stabbing a man to death

Thursday, 10 March 2011

A preliminary hearing continued Wednesday for two alleged members of the notorious Mongols biker gang accused of stabbing a man to death in 2009 at a Gustine bar.
Albert Aleman, 37, Brandon Carvalho, 32, Ruben Silva Jr., 23, David Silva Jr., 24, Mark Oseguera, 25, and Richard Naudin, 31, had been accused of killing 33-year-old Bill James outside the bar late Nov. 6, 2009.
Only Aleman and Ruben Silva Jr. were in court Wednesday.

Five witnesses were called during the hearing. One of the witnesses positively identified Ruben Silva Jr. as the stabber.
Another witness, whose name isn't being used for safety reasons, was sitting next to James just before the killing. She described the scene as "chaotic" and admitted that she didn't want to recollect what happened that night. "I remember wanting to leave and being scared," she said as she cried on the witness stand. "I don't want to remember it."
Later, a witness recalled someone saying something about "Mongols" and heard James saying, "I don't give a s---."
During Tuesday's hearing, three of the defendants signed plea deals and were sentenced, while David Silva Jr. had charges against him dropped.
Naudin pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to three years in prison.
Oseguera pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to six years in prison.
Carvalho pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to seven years in prison. His prison term was extended by a year because of a previous term he served.
Several witnesses were interviewed before it was determined that David Silva Jr. wasn't involved, said John Garcia, the attorney who represented him.
The night of James' killing, as many as 10 men walked into the bar at 431 Fifth St. in Gustine, and a fight erupted with James. He was stabbed several times by at least two of the men. After the fight spilled out into the street, James was stabbed again and collapsed, according to Merced County sheriff's detectives.
Shortly afterward, he was pronounced dead at Memorial Hospital Los Banos. Detectives have said there's no evidence James was gang-affiliated.
The same weekend of James' killing, members of the Mongols had booked every room of a Santa Nella hotel. The hotel staff abandoned the business out of fear of the gang, according to a sheriff's report.
In the months after the stabbing, sheriff's detectives rounded up a total of nine suspects throughout Southern California and the Bay Area, with help from agencies in those areas.
However, three were released because of a lack of sufficient evidence against them.

major bust on the puppet gang for the Hells Angels biker gang, the Red Devils.

Dozens of police officers have flown into Nelson on a Defence Force plane this morning where they carried out a major bust on the puppet gang for the Hells Angels biker gang, the Red Devils.

The operation involved more than 120 police staff from around New Zealand. Several arrests were made and drugs, weapons, cash and other property were seized.

Police used a digger to bulldoze through the front entrance to the Red Devils' pad in Natalie St.

Tasman Police District Commander, Superintendent Gary Knowles, said the operation had produced significant evidence to support the police stance over the past two years that the gang's primary focus was organised crime.

He said the evidence also confirmed the gang's relationship with the Hells Angels.

"We never thought for a moment these were just good old boys on motorbikes, despite what their supporters and legal representatives tried to present them as," Superintendent Knowles said.

The operation involved the NZ Defence Force, NZ Customs and the Organised and Financial Crime Agency New Zealand (OFCANZ).

Police did not say how many people had been arrested, but said they would provide more details at a media briefing this afternoon.

New Zealand branch of the Rebels motorcycle gang have more than 200 criminal convictions between them and have spent nearly 170 years in jail.

Members and prospects of the recently formed New Zealand branch of the Rebels motorcycle gang have more than 200 criminal convictions between them and have spent nearly 170 years in jail.

Police intelligence has identified 17 patched members of Australia's largest gang here in New Zealand, with nearly 100 convictions for serious drug and violence offences between them.

Prison sentences for those patched members total 77 years, a figure topped by the 90 years of jail time for a further 14 identified Rebel prospects or associates.

Detective Superintendent Brett Kane, of the Organised and Financial Crime Agency, released the information yesterday after a major police operation arrested 30 people accused of running a methamphetamine ring across the North Island.

Vehicles were seized during the armed raids in Manawatu, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Northland, as well as $120,000 cash, drugs, guns and gang patches. Four Rebels were arrested in Operation Stamp as the police target the expansion of the major Australian criminal group before it gets a foothold here.

members of the Banditos biker gang that has been around the city for a long time. Investigators said the gang has been quiet for several years, and now that one of the members is behind bars, authorities are worried his fellow gang members could retaliate.
Albuquerque police swarmed Knockouts at Third Street and Central Avenue late Monday night after a bloody fight in the club's back alley landed four people in a hospital.
Police said Halmayr and his friend attacked two brothers leaving the club. A police report said Halmayr threw a bottle at them and pulled out a knife to attack the men. But one of the brothers grabbed the weapon and stabbed Halmayr 20 times in self-defense, police said.
Police said Halmayr was arrested in connection with the incident, but they still have a lot of questions about the case. Police said the biker gang's members don't typically go downtown, and their crimes haven't been frequent.
“I'm not aware of anything they've been involved in recently or that we've come across,” said Trish Hoffman, of the Albuquerque Police Department.
Hoffman said they are still investigating if the incident was gang-related or an isolated incident.
Police said all four men were treated at hospitals across Albuquerque. Halmayr was taken to the Metropolitan Detention Center and was facing a number of charges, including aggravated battery with great bodily harm.

Jason Simmons, 36, was arrested at the VIP Show Club following an altercation that ended with a stabbing early Sunday morning.

Sunday morning stabbing that left one man injured at an Anderson strip club stemmed from a shooting 20 years ago involving rival motorcycle gangs, the suspect told Police investigating the incident.

Jason Simmons, 36, was arrested at the VIP Show Club following an altercation that ended with a stabbing early Sunday morning.

According to court documents, cameras inside the club show Simmons facing Jesse Stone. The video allegedly shows Simmons reaching behind his back “and suddenly making stabbing motions towards the victim.”

According to court documents, Simmons told detectives the altercation started when the victim, Jesse Stone, started making comments about insignias on his black leather vest.

The probable cause illustrates how Simmons told detectives that Stone and another man were “there to kill him.”

Simmons faces a charge of aggravated and battery and possession of marijuana.

Stone was transported to a hospital in Indianapolis where he is listed in fair condition.

Two members of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Gang went on trial in Common Pleas Court

Two members of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Gang went on trial in Common Pleas Court for their alleged role in a $5 million crystal methamphetamine drug trafficking ring.

Jeffrey J. “Death Row” Hampton, 37, of Berlin N.J., and Charles D. “The Panhead” Rees, 55, of Norristown, were charged in August 2008 as part of a state Attorney General’s Office drug investigation known as “Operation Ice Breaker.” In the months since, dozens of the 40 suspected drug dealers arrested in the operation have pleaded guilty before Judge Howard F. Riley Jr., and are either awaiting sentencing or have been sentenced.

Hampton and Rees, who is acting president of the Outlaws, have steadfastly maintained their innocence.

On Tuesday, Deputy Attorney General Andrew Rongaus, in his opening statement to the jury of seven men and five women hearing the case, urged them to use their common sense in fitting the testimony they will hear over the next week to the behavior of the two men with the actions of a drug ring.

Rongaus said that much of the evidence in the case would be recordings of wire-tapped phone conversations between Hampton and a Philadelphia meth dealer named William Lees. Timothy J. Deery, the state Bureau of Narcotics Investigation agent who led the investigation into the massive drug ring, which saw drugs shipped from Latin America to Philadelphia, would lead them through the maze of drug jargon they would hear, he said.

“This case is not one of your typical drug cases,” where a police informant would testify about buying drugs from a dealer. Instead, the jury would hear testimony that Rongaus said were conversations about shipments of meth, cocaine and marijuana coming in, and those drugs being picked up.

Jenks has a “disturbing history of violence” that includes manslaughter and has been aided by his association with the Hells Angels

Wednesday, 9 March 2011

Ricky W. Jenks, 33, poses a threat to the community based on his criminal history and the seriousness of the allegation, U.S. Magistrate Judge Cynthia Imbrogno said Tuesday before approving a request from the U.S. Attorney’s Office to keep Jenks in custody.

Fallen Angel: The Unlikely Rise of Walter Stadnick and the Canadian Hells AngelsAssistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Van Marter said Jenks has a “disturbing history of violence” that includes manslaughter and has been aided by his association with the Hells Angels.

Jenks was the only person arrested at the outlaw motorcycle group’s Spokane headquarters, 1308 E. Sprague Ave., last Thursday. He’s prohibited from possessing firearms because of felony convictions; investigators say they found six loaded guns in the clubhouse, including one that had been reported stolen.

A jacket with Hells Angels sergeant-at-arms patches was found nearby.

Jenks was wearing that jacket when a detective stopped him on his Harley Davidson motorcycle about two weeks before the raid, Van Marter said.

The sergeant-at-arms is known as the gang’s “enforcer,” Van Marter said.

Five others at the clubhouse were not prohibited from possessing weapons, she said.

Hells Angel Michael R. Fitzpatrick, 33, was arrested on a marijuana charge at another location. He was released from jail on his own recognizance Thursday after appearing in Superior Court.

In addition to six firearms, investigators say they found two large bags of marijuana in the clubhouse.

Authorities will not say why they were authorized to search the clubhouse, but Van Marter told Imbrogno the investigation involves drugs and guns. A search warrant remains sealed.

Jenks’ lawyer, public defender Kailey Moran, said Jenks has a state prescription for medical marijuana that he’s willing to relinquish if released.

Van Marter said Jenks admitted to using meth on several occasions, but Moran said he only confessed to using the drug on one occasion several months ago.

Jenks’ did not begin associating with the Hells Angels again until after his probation, which prohibited such contact, ended in December 2009, Moran said.

Moran emphasized that Jenks always showed up for court hearings in a previous federal case. In that case, Jenks served 16 months in prison after he admitted to forcing a man to make regular cash and drug payments, then threatening him when he stopped paying. The same case led to a seven-year prison sentence for Hells Angels chapter president Richard “Smilin’ Rick” Fabel, who is scheduled to be released next year.

Moran said Jenks is employed at Fessco Fleet & Marine, and while he hasn’t worked recently because of an accident, the job still is available.

Jenks lived with his mother and stepfather in Spokane for three years before moving in with his girlfriend four months ago, Moran said.

Jenks’ family, including two young sons and his pregnant girlfriend, attended the hearing. They declined comment.DISCLAIMER:Text may be subject to copyright.This blog does not claim copyright to any such text. Copyright remains with the original copyright holder.

Oslo police have detained a person they believe is a Hells Angel head for several criminal offences.

51-year-old man, who is also suspected of handling stolen goods, is now being kept in custody following several major police raids yesterday on tattoo shops in Trondheim, Tromsø and Lillehammer in connection with tax offences. The three properties are believed to be connected to the gang.
Superintendent Egil Gabrielsen in South-Trøndelag Police District tells Dagbladet the man, “is the central character in this matter.”
According to Adresseavisen, police investigations have revealed the suspected leader is involved with the businesses in some way.
Sør-Trondelag District Court has already indicted the man for drugs offences, aggravated battery, and making death threats. It has also ruled he visited several competitors in Trondheim, making threats and extorting money.
His trial for these former offences is scheduled for 28th March, following which police will be considering further charges relating to yesterday’s raid, reports Dagbladet.

Police have declared war on the Rebels Motorcycle Club of Australia

Monday, 7 March 2011

"Police have declared war on the Rebels Motorcycle Club of Australia, saying it will not be allowed to establish here. But is it too late? And how big is the threat, really? By Tony Wall.

YOU WOULD think the devil incarnate had arrived in New Zealand astride a Harley-Davidson. 'Rebels not welcome here,' screamed the press release, as police vowed to stamp out the gang before it begins 'peddling the misery of methamphetamine in our communities'.

Of course, the Rebels say they are not a gang at all, but a 'club' dedicated to riding bikes. To dispel that myth, police released figures showing that the 17 patched Rebels members identified in New Zealand have nearly 100 convictions for serious drug and violence offences between them, and cumulatively have served 77 years in prison. A further 14 associates have notched up an impressive 90 years' jail time between them."

The one-paragraph affidavit, signed Thursday by Jeff Barrington, alleges the transaction occurred in October.

Superior Court Judge Michael Price allowed Fitzpatrick to leave jail Friday without posting bail, which pre-trial services recommended and is common in marijuana cases. Fitzpatrick has three felony convictions from several years ago, Price said."

Coffin Cheaters ordered to tear down 'fortress walls'

Thursday, 3 March 2011

Coffin Cheaters ordered to tear down 'fortress walls': "The Coffin Cheaters motorcycle gang has been given four weeks to remove heavily-fortified walls around its Bayswater headquarters or face having police do the job for them.

The headquarters is the second to be tackled using anti-fortification laws through exceptional powers granted to police by the Corruption and Crime Commission.

WA Police applied to the CCC on the grounds that the fortress-style walls surrounding the premises and its structural design were beyond the norm and that the headquarters was utilised by a significant number of people reasonably believed to be involved in organised crime.

Advertisement: Story continues below
The owners of the Raleigh Road premises, Cheetah Investments Pty Ltd, were given the chance to respond, which they did through lawyers, and police have since pushed ahead with their demands to remove fortification from the premises."

Tasman District Commander Superintendent Gary Knowles said the search warrants came as a result of information from the public that the gang and the properties of its members were involved in drug offences and that the bar at its headquarters was back operating.

Albuquerque police said they are more concerned with a biker gang the man is connected with.
Out in Bad Standings: Inside the Bandidos Motorcycle Club--The Making of a Worldwide DynastyPolice said the instigator, Ervin Halmayr, and his friend admitted they are members of the Banditos biker gang that has been around the city for a long time.
