Jake Sawyer

Here he comes just’a walkin’ down the street, commanding the space he occupies. The swagger, the sculpted body, the outrageous clothes. It’s gotta be Jake Sawyer, and it is. Jazzed about something, as usual. Whatever Jake’s into, he’s into all the way. He’s got a way of meeting life head on and going for it, consequences be damned.3-13-14-gallant-cliff

A NOTORIOUS bikie gang is suspected of going online in search of motorbikes to steal from under their owners' noses.

The Bandidos-linked suspects are believed to be behind a rebirthing racket with more than 150 motorbikes stolen in the past 12 months across the south-eastern suburbs after they were located on internet sites such as Gumtree and eBay.

Police targeting the rebirthing racket have launched an operation codenamed "Gillis", which is also investigating whether motorcycle auto shops are also tipping off outlaw bikies and associates to addresses where they can find desirable bikes.

Prime targets for the team of offenders are late model Japanese and American motorcycles valued at more than $10,000.

Many sellers are divulging their addresses, making them easy targets for the organised racket.

Cops want bikie colours banned from Byron and Tweed pubs

BIKIES wearing colours look set to be banned from pubs and clubs in Byron Bay and on the Tweed following police calls to crack down on outlaw motorcycle gang members.

Byron Bay Liquor Accord chair Hannah Spalding said while banning bikies wearing colours was not new, the accord would vote at its AGM next month whether to adopt the policy at all licensed venues in the town.

"The OLGR (Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing) have a poster venues can put up if they choose to not allow people in 'one percenter' uniforms," Ms Spalding said.

"It's something the police put forward and the members are normally happy to abide by it, but until we vote on it we don't know."

"Troubling" move punishes people for what they might do, says lawyer

She said the ban would only apply to bikies in colours.

CODY, WYO. — Tourism and business boosters in this Yellowstone National Park gateway town have long worked to convince travelers to spend an extra day in Cody, and to come back a few years later for a repeat visit.

Those efforts may have proven successful with members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club, who last gathered here in 2006, and are reported to be planning a return trip this summer.

Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam said he had been told by “a federal agency” that approximately 600 Hells Angels members and their associates may spend 4-5 days in Cody for their U.S. Run in late July or early August.

Outlaw enforcer to serve 15 years in federal prison

 

INDIANAPOLIS — An enforcer in the Outlaws Motorcycle Club was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Thursday.

Joshua Bowser was accused of participating in instances of fraud, extortion and a drug conspiracy as a member of the group the government paints as a criminal organization.

Bowser's public defenders, Monica Foster and Gwendolyn Beitz, were able to convince Judge Tanya Walton Pratt to shave about a decade off the upper level of an advisory guideline. The government, represented by Brad Blackington, painted Bowser as a leader in several of the illegal acts he and other people associated with the motorcycle club participated in.

Bowser was among 42 people indicted across the state in 2012 as part of raids conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Marshal Service and U.S. Attorney’s Office.
