Harley-Davidsons belonging to the Hells Angels stolen

The H-D Dyna (Soft-tails) were stolen from outside a hotel near Rainton

The story which has been shared widely on social media has attracted attention for the sheer brazen nature in which the bikes were taken (the Hells Angels are known for never contacting the police about such matters and prefer to employ their own kind of justice) as it would’ve been easily noticed that the bikes belonged to the Hells Angels, as both bikes wore the famous Death Head motif that is synonymous with the group.

Stuart Hack shared a post in the UK Motorcycle Theft Protest group on Facebook purporting to be from one of the group. It read:

‘STOLEN LAST NIGHT, 2 Harley Davidson Dynas.

Dutch court tackles another biker gang; No Surrender banned

On Friday the court in Assen banned No Surrender in the Netherlands, ruling that the motorcycle club poses a danger to public order. No Surrender is the fourth outlaw motorcycle gang to be banned in the Netherlands, after Hells Angels, Satudarah and Bandidos.

"A large number of members of No Surrender are or have been structurally involved in numerous serious crimes", the court said in its verdict, NOS reports. The ruling also mentions intimidation, public violence, extortion, unauthorized possession of weapons, drug trafficking, and arms trafficking. 

The judge considered it proven that the club management has an "important steering role in committing and facilitating criminal offenses". The ban  applies to all No Surrender chapters and brotherhoods, because they are not independent due to the strongly hierarchical structure of the motorcycle club.

PITTSBURGH - A new lawsuit has been filed in the bar brawl between motorcycle club members and undercover Pittsburgh police officers.

This is the fourth lawsuit filed by a member of the Pagans motorcycle club stemming from that October fight at Kopy’s Bar on the South Side.

Criminal charges against the four Pagans were dismissed, and the officers have been on paid suspension since the fight.

In this newest lawsuit, Bruce Thomas claims the officers used excessive force and he's accusing them of malicious prosecution and false arrest.

Ignore teddy bear image, RCMP warn ahead of biker gang awareness campaign

'We're not trying to scare the public here, we're trying to inform'

As the weather turns warmer, a new joint effort by police across Canada is focusing on educating people about the risk biker gangs pose to communities.

The RCMP, in a joint effort with the Canadian Integrated Response to Organized Crime, is co-ordinating a social media effort with the hope of raising the public's awareness of the dangers biker gangs pose.

"In the Bombard investigation, we had murder, drug trafficking, there's other types of violence," said Supt. Deanna Hill, the federal criminal operations officer for RCMP N.L.

"Just a host of other offences. Anything that these groups can do to profit."

 

We're not trying to scare the public here. We're trying to inform.

Defendant in shooting death of Pomona SWAT officer testifies he fired a warning shot, thought Mongols were breaking in

LOS ANGELES — A man charged with killing a Pomona SWAT officer testified Wednesday that he fired a “warning shot” because he feared members of a motorcycle club to which he belonged were trying to break into his family’s home in San Gabriel and he did not know that police were at the front door.

Testifying in his own defense, David Martinez said, “I would never fire at police or law enforcement ever. I have family that’s (in) law enforcement.”

Police reveal they blocked Hells Angels from entering the country ‘because they posed a risk’

Officers refused entry to convicted murderers and kidnappers

Officers refused to let certain members of the Hells Angels even step foot in the country for the Euro Run this weekend.

Some of the violent criminals who were barred entry have been convicted of murder, kidnap, torture, drug supply, violent assaults and firearm offences, according to police.

They had anticipated around 3,000 members of the motorcycle club would be visiting from all over the world to mark the 50th anniversary of the Hells Angels in the UK.

These members were staying on the Surrey and Sussex borders for a private event at a hotel in east Surrey.

Authorities arrest man charged in Akron shooting. He was on run for more than a month

AKRON — U.S. Marshals in northern Indiana arrested Monday evening a man who is believed to be a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and had been on the run since April after he cut off his court ordered ankle monitor, according to a news release.

In September 2018, the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Robert Lee Greathouse, 53, who was facing charges of felonious assault after a shooting in Akron. Members of the task force tracked Greathouse to a rural cabin in Cadiz. Two pistols and a rifle were found in the home at the time of his arrest.

In April, Greathouse was given a short term furlough prior to beginning his prison sentence on the felonious assault case.

60 years for ‘calling shots’ in grisly death

A judge has sentenced a man to 60 years in prison after hearing a video statement of the defendant giving a detailed description of how he helped dismember and dispose of the body of a woman found in Greene County in 2013.

Brandon Chittum, 36, formerly of Alton, was sentenced Friday by Associate Judge Neil Schroeder after prosecutors introduced a taped statement that was excluded from the trial in which Chittum was found guilty of first-degree murder, dismembering a human body, and concealing a homicidal death.

Chittum was found guilty under the accountability theory, which holds that he helped participate in the act and was accountable for the acts of co-defendant Patrick Chase, who admitted to carrying out the killing.

Assistant Madison County State’s Attorney Crystal Uhe argued that Chittum deserved the same 70-year sentence as Chase was given for the crime. She had argued during the trial that Chittum coached Chase in killing Coats, his then-girlfriend.
