Alleged biker gang member testifies at own trial

Joseph McIntyre admits he had a suspicion something sketchy was going down on March 21 of last year.

He was driving to a residence on Salmonier Line with two acquaintances in the backseat of his car, both members of the Vikings motorcycle club. McIntyre thought he was going with them for another look at a Harley-Davidson bike he was hoping to purchase. It turns out the men in the back had worked out a heroin deal instead.

At least that’s what McIntyre, 42, told provincial court in St. John’s Tuesday as he took the stand at his own trial for trafficking cocaine and fentanyl.

He said he knew the two men — whom he identified as James Curran, who is also facing charges, and a man now known to be a Viking-turned-police informant, who was wearing a hidden recording device — were having a conversation about business, but he wanted nothing to do with it.

He was charged with Mr Starkey's murder, and did not apply for bail when the matter was mentioned briefly in Gosford Local Court on Wednesday.

As Symons was being questioned, police released CCTV footage showing the lead-up to the brutal assault, and called on anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin described the crime as particularly violent.


Rebels bikie charged for allegedly moving cars with forklift

A SENIOR Rebels bikie has been charged by police after allegedly using a forklift to stack cars blocking the entrance to a bike storage unit.

Police claim that the senior member of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang picked up a Holden Rodeo ute and dropped it on top of a Daewoo Matiz after the owners failed to move them.

A police spokesman said that the incident happened on Friday last week after more than 50 motorcycles had participated in the Rebels’ national run in Tasmania.

After organising for the bikes to be transported by truck to a Malaga factory unit, they had asked occupants of the neighbouring unit to move the cars so that the bikes could be off-loaded.

The occupant says the two cars could not be moved because of mechanical issues and when staff returned to work on Monday morning, they discovered the vehicles had been stacked.
