Hell's Angels clubhouse in Kelowna still active despite civil forfeiture claim

KELOWNA - Despite a civil forfeiture claim against it, the Hell’s Angels clubhouse in Kelowna’s North End has been busy lately with lots of big bikes coming and going.

That could come to an end early next year when the Angels and their lawyers face off against the B.C. Civil Forfeiture office in a Vancouver courtroom.

Senior public affairs officer Kate Trotter said the litigation against the clubhouse owner continues but the property is still theirs to use, although she would not comment on the recent activity.

“The registerd owner has possession of the clubhouse at this time,” Trotter said. “Because the civil forfeiture case remains before the courts, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."

The Kelowna clubhouse at 871 Ellis Street has been a target of the civil forfeiture office since 2012 when it began proceedings against the registered owner.

Gladiators OMCG - Council ‘unaware of breaches’

GUNNEDAH council will take action against an outlaw motorcycle club’s local clubhouse if it breaches conditions, the mayor said.

Owen Hasler said council was unaware of any concerns in relation to people living at the Gladiators Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMCG) base on Bloomfield St before last week’s raid by Oxley police and officers from Strike Force Raptor – the state’s gangs squad.

“We are always seeking to ensure our community is a safe one, but I have to say in regards to my knowledge, we have not had any notifications [in the two years] since the last police action there,” he said.

“We are pleased that the police are actively monitoring the situation.

“And we would take action ourselves should we be notified, but to my knowledge there has been no notification.”

Senior Bandidos bikie gang member and associate charged over Sydney brawl

A high-ranking Bandidos bikie gang member and an associate have been charged over a brawl outside a hotel in Sydney's north-west.

NSW Police said the charges related to a fight in which a man was knocked unconscious and kicked in the head as he lay on the ground.

A police statement said the brawl, which involved 10 people, took place outside a hotel in Rydalmere after a man was punched in the face on April 16.

Detectives today arrested a 38-year-old Bandidos member after searching a home at Wentworth Point.

He was charged with affray and two counts of breaching bail and was denied bail to appear at Burwood Local Court today.

Police found and seized a substance believed to be a steroid at the property.

Later, in a search of a home in Epping, they arrested a 39-year-old associate of the Bandidos and charged him with affray.

He was granted bail and is due to appear at Parramatta Local Court on July 19.

Court of Criminal Appeals lifts Twin Peaks gag order

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals lifted the gag order Wednesday initially issued by a McLennan County state district judge in the case of a biker arrested in the Twin Peaks shootout.

In a one-line opinion, written by Justice Cheryl Johnson, the CCA said, “We deny mandamus relief and withdraw our order staying the proceedings.”

The opinion lets stand an order by the Tenth Court of Appeals that overturned the gag order on Aug. 7, 2015, in the case of Matthew Clendennen, a member of the Scimitars Motorcycle Club who was arrested at Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015.

The intermediate appellate court held that 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson abused his discretion when he limited pretrial publicity in Clendennen’s case before the court issued a gag order on June 30, 2015, which remained in effect until Wednesday.

The CCA intervened at Reyna’s request on Aug. 13, 2015, ruling that the 10th Court’s ruling be stayed until it made a ruling.

Texas' Top Criminal Court Blocks Waco Biker Case Gag Order

Texas' highest criminal court has reversed a gag order in the case of one of the nearly 200 bikers arrested after a shooting last year outside a Waco restaurant that left nine dead.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals released the opinion Wednesday, a year after Matthew Clendennen filed a lawsuit against the city of Waco, the local district attorney and the Waco police officer who drafted a warrant for Clendennen's arrest.

The gag order, requested by prosecutors, barred parties in the case from speaking about it publicly. Sixteen news organizations, including The Associated Press, also asked the court last summer to overturn the order.

Prosecutors and Waco's police spokesman have repeatedly cited the gag order to not comment on the investigation. Neither immediately returned a call for comment Wednesday.

Undercover officer confronted by gang member

A member of the Black Pistons motorcycle gang, who was under investigation by police for drug trafficking, used his black Hummer to block in a vehicle in a parking lot that was being occupied by an undercover Niagara Regional Police officer.

The incident took place on Oct. 23, 2013, shortly after 11 p.m., in the parking lot of KoKo's Lounge on Scott Street in St. Catharines where NRP Sgt. Matt Hodges and other members of his team were conducting surveillance.

That same Hummer had been at Private Eyes in Niagara-on-the-Lake earlier in the evening where its owner, Randy McGean and passenger Isaac Lucas were observed leaving the strip bar, getting into the vehicle and leaving the area.

Infamous bikie club the Bandidos confirm plans to form Tasmanian chapter

THE feared Bandidos bikie gang has confirmed it is expanding its presence in Tasmania.

National Bandidos spokesman Grey Norman said several men in the state’s North-West had reached out to the club to get involved.

“We were approached by certain individuals who would like to be involved … a group of guys who have been riding around for awhile,” he said.

The Bandidos rose to infamy after the bloody 1984 Father’s Day Massacre in Sydney, which left seven people dead, including 14-year-old bystander Leanne Walters.

But Mr Norman said the club had changed its ways and was now promoting a message of “love, loyalty and respect” not violent lunacy.

He said there would be no turf war with other bikie gangs in Tasmania, which include the Rebels, Outlaws, Satan’s Riders, Devil’s Henchman and the Black Uhlans.

“This process has been done with consultation with the existing clubs on the island, without any problems,” he said.
