No Major Incidents During Hells Angels Ride Though Province

It was a wary truce, but a gathering of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the province stayed relatively peaceful.

Staff Sergeant Steve Conohan is with RCMP Criminal Intelligence. He says a large group of Hells Angels from New Brunswick, along with Bacchus club members and supports were in the province, and have since left.

He says RCMP and RNC were watching them the entire time, and were in no way subtle about it.

He says as soon as the one-percenters arrived RCMP met with their leadership to talk about expectations, and they made their presence known every step of the way during their stay.

He says the overwhelming majority of motorcycle clubs in the province are law-abiding riders.

Police: Suspected members of the Pagans motorcycle gang threatened to harm Franklin County man

FRANKLIN COUNTY — Four suspected members of the Pagans Outlaw Motorcycle Gang were arrested Sunday after they allegedly threatened to injure a Franklin County man at a convenience store — then later showed up at the man’s house while police were talking to him about the incident, according to State Police.

The unidentified victim told police the suspects threatened him with “bodily harm” during a confrontation at a Rutter’s store on the 4400 block of Lincoln Way West in St. Thomas Township at about 3:28 p.m., according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed by State Police.

The men threatened the victim and his family inside and outside the store, the victim reported to police. Fearing for his safety, the victim told police he left the store and went home to contact authorities about the incident.

The victim told police he knew the men were members of the Pagans, the complaint says.

Mongols’ probation means headquarters of motorcycle club is subject to search, not riders on the street, judge says

Federal judge clarifies conditions of probation for outlaw motorcycle club

A federal judge on Friday, June 28, made clear that his decision to place the notorious Mongols motorcycle club on probation means the headquarters for the outlaw organizations mothership chapter is fair game for random search by probation officers, not individual bikers themselves.

U.S. District Judge David O. Carter in May ordered the Mongols’ organization to pay a $500,000 fine, and to serve five years on supervised probation, after a Santa Ana jury found that the Southern California-based club itself — rather than specific members — was guilty of racketeering.
