According to the release, the Montreal and Laval police forces are involved in trying to locate him.

Accused denies misleading full-patch Hells Angel in attempt to get him involved in petty dispute

A prosecutor suggested Thursday that a Hells Angels associate accused in the brutal slaying of a Kelowna dad had lied to and manipulated a full-patch member of the notorious motorcycle club into helping him fight the victim’s sons.

Court has heard that accused Daniel McRae and his brother and co-accused Matthew McRae were engaged in a long-running petty dispute with the sons of Dain Phillips, who was beaten to death in June 2011.

Crown counsel Joe Bellows suggested during his cross-examination of Daniel McRae that the accused had manipulated Hells Angel Norman Cocks into joining them in their fight with Kody and Kaylin Phillips.

“I completely disagree with that,” McRae told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark McEwan.

Several hours prior to the slaying, Cocks punched Kaylin Phillips at a recycling depot after McRae had spotted him as he and Cocks were driving by, court has heard.

Former bikie jailed for nightclub king-hit

A former senior bikie will spend two months in prison for the bashing of another man outside a Brisbane nightclub.

Former sergeant-at-arms of the Bandidos' Centro chapter Zivko Stojakovic was sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment on Wednesday but is to be released on parole after eight weeks.

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm after hitting a student in the back of the head outside a Brisbane nightclub in 2012.

The Brisbane District Court heard the 27-year-old victim had walked between Stojakovic and another man who were arguing loudly outside The Beat nightclub in Fortitude Valley in the early hours of December 29, 2012.

When the student asked what was going on, Stojakovic, who was wearing a shirt with a Bandidos insignia, hit him in the back of the head.

The Bosnian-born bikie then tackled his victim onto the road and punched and kicked him in the head, inflicting a cut above the eye that required stitches.

Senior Comanchero figure pleads guilty over international drug syndicate

A SENIOR figure in the Comanchero Motorcycle Club has pleaded guilty to his part in an international drug syndicate operating between Mexico and Australia.

Justin Clark appeared today in the County Court, where he pleaded guilty to two charges over the international drug ring.

It is understood the drug syndicate manufactured cocaine and other drugs, and exported them from Mexico using airline passengers as couriers.

Clark pleaded guilty to one count each of importing a marketable quantity of a border-controlled drug, namely cocaine and methylamphetamine.

The court heard the offending happened between 2011 and 2012, but Clark’s exact role in the operation was not detailed.

He was charged in 2012 after a 16-month investigation by a joint multi-agency taskforce, including Victoria Police.

Judge: David Maloney can carry guns while waiting retrial

WINTER SPRINGS -- 

A judge has ruled that David Maloney, the Warlocks motorcycle gang leader, can carry guns while he awaits a retrial.

David Maloney was found not guilty by a Seminole County jury on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.

But, Maloney will go back to court on May 14 on a count of attempted first-degree murder. The judge declared a mistrial on that count after the jury couldn't reach a verdict after deliberating for about nine hours on April 9.

Maloney was the first of four men to stand trial for the 2012 shooting deaths outside a VFW hall in Winter Springs. He was initially charged with three counts of second-degree murder, but one of the counts was later dropped.

Trial begins for 2nd Warlocks MC member in VFW shootout case (video)

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

Opening arguments will start Tuesday in the trial of a second member of the Philadelphia Warlocks Motorcycle Club accused of killing two rival club members in 2012.

Prosecutors argue that bullets from Victor Amaro's gun killed two Orlando Warlocks MC members at a charity poker run at the Winter Springs Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

The state believes its case against Amaro is stronger than the case against David Maloney, who was acquitted of murder charges last week.

Prosecutors are still deciding whether to re-try Maloney on the one count of attempted murder that the jury deadlocked on.

Maloney is now a free man and a judge recently denied a request from the state to put him on electronic monitoring and under house arrest.

Maloney's attorney argued his client has been getting threats online and he fears for his life. He said keeping Maloney at home would make him an easy target for his enemies.

Police target outlaw biker gangs over flow of illicit drugs to Territory

Police say they are cracking down on organised crime gangs supplying drugs in the Northern Territory.

They are working with a national anti-gang drug task force to address the flow of drugs coming into the Territory from interstate.

Outlaw motorcycle gangs are key players in the local and national illegal drug industry, police say.

Earlier this month, three outlaw motorcycle gang members were charged with drug possession, robbery and firearm offences in the Territory.

Assistant Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw says drugs in the Territory are being sold at double the price of those in southern states.

He says motorcycle gangs pose a threat in the Territory because they see it as such a lucrative market.

"They have a significant share [of drug dealing] across Australia," he said.

"Approximately 63 per cent of amphetamines seized [in the NT] this year were sourced from interstate."

Police angered by reduced speeding fine for notorious bikie caught doing 55km/h over limit in club colours

A LENIENT Gold Coast magistrate has reduced the fine handed to a member of the ­notorious Finks Terror Team caught travelling at almost twice the legal speed limit.

Graeme Anthony Keating, 50, was clocked doing 115km/h on his Harley Davidson through the 60km/h construction zone at Mudgeeraba on the M1 in May last year. ­Keating — the older brother of Mongols national sergeant-at-arms Greg Keating — was wearing Finks colours and carrying a female passenger when he was caught about 8.30pm.

The court was told Keating claimed he was rushing to help someone who was threatening to commit suicide.

When questioned by police, he admitted the person lived at Redbank Plains, was with other people and he had not called 000 for help.

At that speed — 55km/h over the legal limit — Keating was ­issued a mandatory $1026 fine and given an automatic six- month driving suspension.

The court was told Keating had a “substantial” eight-page traffic history.
