Suspected drug dealer killed breaking into Whitewater Township home to collect debt

WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) - A man was shot and killed while breaking into a home in Whitewater Township early Wednesday, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. Investigators identified him as Andrew Naegele, 26. That homeowner, John Heard, is now charged.

Heard, called 911 and reported that he had shot a man in the chest as he was breaking into his home on Ohio 128 near Cilley Road just before 1 a.m.

During the 911 call, Heard said that the man he shot and killed was a member of the Iron Horsemen outlaw motorcycle club who also came to his house on Monday night to "rough him up," but he didn't know him.

"I told him to leave, leave, leave," the man said on the call to 911. "And he come at me and he knew that I had a gun. And he kept coming. I had to shoot him.”

Deputies interviewed the homeowner. They say Heard admitted that Naegele was his drug dealer there to collect money he owed for methamphetamine.

‘I like to make things.’ Meet the expert gun builder at the center of the R.I. biker gangs case

In March, two months before explosives experts blew open two Woonsocket motorcycle clubs, state police detectives say they listened in on a phone call between the clubs’ leaders. One talked of killing Christine DeSpain — the woman who made guns in her basement.

“I expected her to show up today,” an angry Rodney P. Lambert, head of the Kryptmen club, is quoted in an affidavit as saying, ”...and I would shoot her in the head.”

Obviously, relations between Lambert and a once ally who investigators say played an important role in the clubs’ illicit activities had dangerously soured.

DeSpain, 47, was a regular at the Kryptmen’s clubhouse, an old, fenced-in industrial building on Second Avenue that backed up to a wooded lot. There she rubbed elbows with who she calls “some of the last real men” and discussed shared hobbies: cars, motorcycles — and guns.

DeSpain knew more about manufacturing firearms and how to use them, investigators say, than any biker.

Could a notorious biker club's survival hinge on a trademark? The feds are betting on it

When federal prosecutors finally managed to put mobster Al Capone behind bars, it wasn’t for murder or bootlegging, but tax evasion.

Fast forward several decades and government lawyers in Southern California say a similarly novel tactic could be the key to taking down the Mongols, a notorious motorcycle club that has long been targeted by authorities for killings and drug trafficking.

Instead of tax returns, the court battle this time will be won or lost in the decidedly unexciting trenches of trademark and forfeiture law.
