Hells Angel associate arrested in 2015 murder north of Denair

A more than year-long investigation into the Modesto Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, which already has resulted in federal drug charges against high ranking members, on Tuesday led to the arrest of a suspect in a 2015 homicide.

Hells Angel associate Jeffrey Velthoen, 35, was arrested on suspicion of killing 25-year-old Steven Losey on Feb. 17, 2015.

A bystander found Losey suffering from gunshot wounds in a pickup after seeing him driving erratically, then crashing off the road near the intersection of Santa Fe Avenue and Berkeley Road. Losey later died at a hospital.

Velthoen was arrested at his Modesto home in the 2000 block of Terrance Way, northeast of Norwegian and McHenry avenues, said Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Sgt. Josh Clayton.

It was one of four Modesto locations searched Tuesday morning by the Central Valley Gang Intelligence Task force, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department and the Modesto Police Department.

New Brunswick Hells Angels member granted day parole

A man the police describe as a full-patch member of the Hells Angels New Brunswick Nomads chapter has been granted day parole, despite opposition from local police and Correctional Service Canada.

Police believe Robin Moulton returned to his home province of New Brunswick in 2016 not just to sell motorcycle apparel, but with the purpose of setting up a chapter for Hells Angels, according to an Oct. 3 Parole Board of Canada decision.

The New Brunswick Nomads chapter is part of an eastern expansion for Canada's largest and most powerful outlaw motorcycle gang, which also established a chapter in Charlottetown this year.

Moulton, 50, was sentenced last October to 4½ years in prison for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a drug press with the intention of producing or trafficking a substance.

Motorcycle club aims to dispel perceptions -- Outlaws come to Anderson

(pics) --- ANDERSON — Anthony “Tony” Lupica sat on a bar stool inside one of three buildings he recently acquired from the former motorcycle club known as the Ratcoons.

Lupica, 67, said he purchased the property to open a chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club — a nationwide organization known as 1%ers.

The American Motorcycle Association helped coin the 1%er term during a motorcycle rally held in 1947 in Hollister, California.

The organization stated at the time that 99% of the people at their events were God-fearing and family oriented. The other 1% were hard riding, hard partying, non-mainstream people.

Lupica said the term isn’t about the baddest of the bad — they just like to do things in extreme.

WA Police out in force as 100 bikies attend funeral of fallen Outlaws club member

About 100 bikies and their associates have been monitored closely by police from Kenwick to Pinnaroo today during a funeral for a dead bikie member.

Up to 40 police kept a close eye on the bikies as the massive contingent of riders made their way to the two locations.

It’s understood today’s funeral was for a member of the Outlaws bikie gang.

Detective Superintendent Tony Longhorn said between 35 and 40 officers watched the bikies closely and managed them through various roads to ensure they followed road rules.

“We received information that a funeral was going to happen today...it was a number of clubs (involved) but predominantly the Outlaws motorcycle gang,” he said.

“Historically there is a disregard for the road rules for these particular individuals.”

But Det-Supt Longhorn said the bikies had been well behaved so far.

All of their activities and movements had been filmed.

Biker gang turf battles fuel rising violence in RI

(videos) --- PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Violent clashes between feuding biker gangs have been on the rise in Rhode Island as a turf war sparked five years ago continues to rage on.

And investigators who track outlaw motorcycle groups are increasingly concerned innocent bystanders could get caught in the crossfire.

Detective Ryan Mahoney of the R.I. State Police Intelligence Unit said motorcycle gangs are unlike traditional organized crime, such as La Cosa Nostra, because their violence is even more unpredictable.

Gang members in alleged home invasion over cellphone

The sale of a second-hand cellphone resulted in a home invasion involving a gun and baseball bat.

Police allege two patched Bandidos gang members bashed down the door of a house on Curletts Rd, Sockburn, on Sunday night and assaulted a man.

Two brothers, Rawiri Takuira Kiri, 26, of Waltham, and Lee Teomaori Kiri, 30, of Aranui, have been charged over the alleged incident, which The Star understands was a dispute over a cellphone which was sold but did not work properly.

They appeared in the district court on Monday, facing joint charges of possessing a firearm and armed robbery with a baseball bat.

Police allege they stole $15 from the male victim, who was assaulted during the incident.

More charges are likely.

They were remanded in custody until December, when they are next due to appear in court.

The Star understands the male victim’s parents and two children were at home at the time of the attack.
