Biker Éric Leclerc charged with attempted murder

~~Victim Claude Fleury refuses to help police investigate shooting~~

 

MONTREAL — A man who was kicked out of the Hells Angels because of his problems with drug addiction is expected to appear in court Tuesday in an attempted murder case involving a recent downtown shooting.

Éric Leclerc, 43, was charged on Saturday with the attempted murder of 36-year-old Claude Fleury, a victim who refused to help the Montreal police in their investigation of the early Friday morning shooting. Leclerc is scheduled to return to the Montreal courthouse Tuesday for a bail hearing that is likely to be a mere formality. He was still serving a 15-month sentence for armed robbery when he was arrested Friday.

Three nabbed over bikie extortion ring

Police expect to lay more charges over a violent bikie extortion and drug racket on the Gold Coast.

 

Three men linked to the Hells Angels outlaw bikie gang were arrested in simultaneous dawn raids at Varsity Lakes early on Monday.

It's alleged one of their victims was bashed in an attempt to recover a debt.

The trio's also accused of using threats of violence against others who owed them money, with some victims forced to hand over their cars.

Police say the men were also involved in the supply of the drug ice.

Two patched Hells Angels members and another man with links to the gang were arrested in Monday's raids.

"Investigations are continuing surrounding allegations of additional victims who were also assaulted and extorted by the accused," police said.

"Investigators are confident there are others and urge for them to come forward."

Motorcycle group member found guilty in fatal shootout

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —A jury has found Victor Amaro guilty in a deadly motorcycle group shootout in Seminole County.

It took the jury until almost 11 p.m. Friday to convict Amaro of two counts of second-degree murder.

Amaro may spend the rest of his life behind bars after a jury convicted him on two counts of murder when gunshots erupted at a Winter Springs VFW.

Three members of the Warlocks, Harold Liddle, David Jakiela and Peter Schlette were shot and killed in late September 2012.

Amaro wasn’t convicted of two attempted first-degree murder charges and found not guilty on a third second-degree charge, but jurors didn’t buy that he was defending himself when he shot two others.

This was his second trial after the first was ruled a mistrial when prosecutors played a piece of audio they weren’t allowed to play. The shooting landed several people behind bars and facing murder charges.

Girlfriend of Mongols MC member Mark Sandery avoids jail for hiding sem-automatic rifle in parents’ home

THE girlfriend of Mongols Motorcycle Club sergeant-at-arms Mark Sandery has avoided a prison term for gun charges.

Jemma Caroline Trevean was convicted of offences including possessing a firearm without a licence after police found a sawnoff semi-automatic rifle and silencer hidden inside a cupboard at her parents’ house in December 2011.

District Court judge Gordon Barrett said he and the jury rejected Trevean’s claims at trial that she knew nothing of the gun.

“I am satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that you secreted the firearm and the silencer in your parents’ wardrobe on behalf of someone you knew,” he said.

“In all likelihood I think that person was Mark Sandery or fellow members of the Finks Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, of which he was then a member. He is now the Sergeant-at-arms of the Mongols Motorcycle Gang.”

New plan to tackle motorcycle gangs: Justice minister

The minister of Security and Justice, Ivo Opstelten (VVD) wants to tackle motorcycle clubs within the current law, if there is sufficient grounds for this to be possible.

Outrightly banning biker clubs is not possible, as club formation is not against the law, but the minister does say that there is enough room within legislation to tackle motorcycle clubs in the Netherlands. He said this after discussions with the police, the Public Prosecution Authority (OM), the national strategic discussion outlawbikers and several mayors, Elsevier reports.

“As government we cannot and do not want to tolerate this”, Opstelten says. “The aim is to tacke these gangs and the law gives us that ability.”

"Dob in a bikie"

Police are asking the WA public to "dob in a bikie". 

They've organised a special  phone-in day hoping that people will call with information about bikies involved in violent crime, drugs, firearms and prostitution.

Callers can remain anonymous.

Assistant Commissioner Craig Ward said: "The public can help us in this fight and they can do so without fear of being identified.

The phone-in day will happen on May 20.

As well as stopping crime the police want to stop the bikie gangs recruiting new members. They're urging people who have a loved-one who is considering becoming a bikie to let the police know.

Assistant Commissioner Ward said: "Bikies are the primary movers of crystal meth in WA, then there is the extortion and the violence. Do you really want to see your family member go down this path? We would implore family members to come forward now before their love one gets too involved."
