Mongols affilliates planned Bakersfield attack on Hells Angels days in advance of fundraiser, reports say

Two days before a motorcycle wash fundraiser in Bakersfield organized by the local chapter of the Hells Angels, Ricardo Viera received a text message from an affiliate of the Mongols, another decades-old motorcycle club — and one of the Angels' biggest rivals.

"Light-em-up," read the message sent from the phone of Eliseo Ray Miranda, recently released court documents say. He also texted Viera, a "patched over" Mongols member, a photograph of an advertisement for the event.

On May 5, Miranda and two other Mongols affiliates — Christopher Clay Wilson and Arturo Desiderio — arrived at the motorcycle wash in the 3200 block of Buck Owens Boulevard in one vehicle, according to court documents. Viera, armed with a pump-action pistol grip shotgun, drove separately to the event and parked near them.

Augello attorney seeking Kauffman suicide note, informant | Kauffman Case

MAYS LANDING — A lawyer for the man charged with murder in the 2012 killing of April Kauffman requested Dr. James Kauffman's suicide note as well as the confidential informant in the case.

Alleged Pagans motorcycle gang leader Ferdinand "Freddy" Augello, 62, of Upper Township, appeared before Judge Bernard DeLury on Thursday for a status conference in Atlantic County Superior Court. 

“One of our primary issues or concerns right now is obtaining Dr. Kauffman’s suicide note,” public defender Mary Linehan said, adding the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office has said it does not have the note and that the Hudson County jail’s position is that its investigation is still open.

“We’ll also be filing a motion to reveal a confidential informant,” she said. “Although this is public information that is already out there. It’s been in the media as well.”

When the Angels came to town

The Hells Angels made Healdsburg their playground in the late 1960s

Wander the tree-lined downtown streets of Healdsburg today and listen. Do you hear the vibrant tunes from the Tuesday evening concerts?

Splashing water from the Plaza fountain, or shoppers and the hubbub of commerce?

If you lived here in the 1960s, you might have heard a different sound — the loud and distinctive rumble of V-twin engines and straight pipes. The Hells Angels were roaring into town. Again.

Federal Judge Delays Mongols Trial But Warns The Gang About Manners

Inside a stately Orange County federal courtroom on June 4, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter silently eyed a wild looking bunch of at least 25 Mongols Motorcycle Club members dominating the public seating section.

Several of the club’s crew looked bar-room ready to rumble with anyone who held their probing gazes, but Carter, a heroic U.S. Marine survivor of one of this nation’s most brutal military battles in the Vietnam War and one of the nation’s most colorful judges, wanted the motley crew to know who is in charge and not to be challenged: him.

“What a great impression you make,” the federal judge sarcastically said to the Mongols during the pre-trial hearing.

Founder of firefighters' biker club poses with Hells Angels

(video)---B.C.’s public safety minister says he has serious concerns about a new motorcycle club of Lower Mainland firefighters called Florian’s Knights that has been attending events with the Hells Angels.

“This is just disturbing on so many levels,” Mike Farnworth said after Postmedia obtained a photo of a founding member of the Knights posing with three Hells Angels.

Farnworth said firefighters face incredible danger on the job, made worse in recent years by “a rise in fires in homes where drug labs are located.”

“And many of those labs allegedly have links to the Hells Angels. So I find it more than a bit disturbing that you’ve got a motorcycle gang composed of firefighters associating with Hells Angels who may be making their job even more dangerous than it already is.”

Three facing charges after raid on Oshawa home allegedly linked to Hells Angels

ORILLIA, Ont. -- Provincial police say a woman and two men are facing a dozen charges each after searches at an Oshawa, Ont., home allegedly linked to the Hells Angels.

Police say weapons, ammunition, drugs and outlaw motorcycle gang paraphernalia were seized.

They say the seizure supports recent reports of rising tensions and violence between the Hells Angels and Outlaws MC groups and their support clubs.

Three people from Oshawa -- a 26-year-old woman and men aged 32 and 33 -- face charges that include careless storage of a firearm, unauthorized possession of firearms, and possession of GHB for the purposes of trafficking.

OPP say they are searching for a fourth suspect.

The three accused were to appear for a bail hearing Monday in an Oshawa court.
