Mongols motorcycle club returns to Palm Springs for annual event

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - The Mongols motorcycle club is back in Palm Springs for their annual event -- selling out all 255 rooms at the Hilton in downtown Palm Springs. The Palm Springs police department has implemented extra security measures in the surrounding area out of "an abundance of caution."

“You can’t escape the noise...there’s a couple hundred that come in at one time with all the bikes. So you got the vibrations of the bikes coming up and yeah...it’s a pretty large spectacle,” said Shannon Anderson, the General Manager of the Hilton Palm Springs.  

Some locals expressed concern with the return of the biker group. “If you even Wikipedia them...and it says rape, murder drugs...I think it makes people feel uncomfortable,” said Marsha Robinson, a local shop owner. One bar said they refuse to let anyone inside wearing a leather Mongol vest.

Undercover Pittsburgh detectives brawl with reputed Pagans in South Side bar

Undercover Pittsburgh narcotics detectives and uniformed officers brawled early Friday morning inside a South Side bar with what police say were armed reputed members of the Pagans motorcycle club.

Pagans and police threw punches, the two sides grappled and shoved one another and a sergeant deployed pepper spray in the close confines of Kopy’s Bar on South 12th Street, according to criminal complaints.

A customer at the bar recorded several videos of the altercation, in which both uniformed and plainclothes detectives can be seen fighting with men in leather vests, some officers with Tasers in hand.

One man in plainclothes shouts, “I’m a [expletive] cop,” as he shoves a vested man to the ground and then stands over him, shouting, “You’re a [expletive] [expletive]...why don’t you [expletive] grab on to me again!”

The man on the ground says, “I didn’t!”

Project Forseti informant facing charges had gun for protection, thought it was legal, defence says

Noel Harder thought he was legally allowed to have a gun he’s banned from possessing and needed it for protection from imminent danger, according to his lawyer Linh Pham.

Pham said police officers advised Harder to get a gun for protection. Pham said “dangerous people” were after Harder because he was an informant in Project Forseti – a 2015 investigation into organized crime.

Harder armed himself because he thought he was being set up and was afraid of being kidnapped or hurt after he got “negative vibes” when he met with someone to buy a used TV, Pham said during Harder’s bail hearing Friday.

Harder, 39, is facing 26 weapon-related charges after police received a call on Sept. 25 about a man in the driver’s seat of a Range Rover with a handgun on Powe Street and Rayner Avenue.

Bikies’ bad blood boils after assassination bid

The drive-by shooting on a suburban street was a clear sign that the feud between the Rebels and Comanchero gangs was heating up.

As a 53-year-old Rebels associate rode home from a meeting, an unmarked SUV with a blue flashing light signalled for him to pull over.

Used to police attention on anyone linked to a bikie gang, the motorcyclist likely had no sense of the impending danger that Tuesday evening last month in Calista. But instead of officers stepping out to question him, he instead found himself staring down the barrel of a gun.

As the unknown assailants sped away, nearby residents alerted by the gunshots found the man laying in a pool of blood, lucky to survive bullets that pierced his stomach and arm.

Police say the failed assassination attempt was an escalation of the stoush, which had previously been characterised by overnight firebombings at tattoo parlours and shots fired at a Rebels bikie’s house.

Judge orders release of man charged with witness tampering in Kauffman trial

MAYS LANDING — An Egg Harbor Township man accused of witness tampering in the April Kauffman murder trial was released from jail Friday for what a judge said was a change in circumstances.

Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Bernard E. DeLury said he granted the release of retired Pagans motorcycle club member John “Egyptian” Kachbalian due to the conviction in the murder case and the relocation of the alleged victim. He said he was also aware that Kachbalian’s health was deteriorating rapidly in jail, beyond the care that could be provided in the Atlantic County Jail.

Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Donna Weaver declined to comment regarding his release. 

Kachbalian, 56, was revealed to have a serious heart condition at a previous court appearance.

Kachbalian’s attorneys, Kenneth Young and Stephen Patrizio of Philadelphia, declined to comment after the hearing.
