Dutch police call parliament to quickly ban outlaw motorcycle gangs

The police want parliament to speed up a legislative proposal that will allow the Justice Minister to immediately ban outlaw motorcycle gangs, especially now that new clubs are emerging in the Netherlands, said police chief Pim Miltenburg, in charge of the motorcycle gang file at the police, NOS reports.

This involves split-offs from existing outlaw motorcycle gangs or emerging clubs that do others' dirty work for them, according to the government. For example, was often in the news this year with connections to assassinations and an attack on the Panorama building in Amsterdam. Members of Kings Syndicate, a division of motorcycle gang No Surrender, are also being linked with serious crimes, according to the broadcaster. "As a police man I say: hurry up, because the street requires direct action", Miltenburg said.

Hells Angels purchases vacant Centereach church

The group will use the Lynbrook Street site as its Suffolk County chapter headquarters, Brookhaven Town officials said.

Brookhaven Town officials say the Hells Angels have purchased a former Centereach church and plan to use it as the club’s new headquarters.

The club's Suffolk County chapter, which held a children's toy drive at the Lynbrook Street site earlier this month, plans to modify the structure's interior and obtain town permits before moving in, officials said. Town officials said club leaders have been cooperative and plan to be "good neighbors." 

Brookhaven officials said some neighboring residents have expressed concern about the club's purchase of the property, but they said the town cannot prevent the group from using the site as long as members abide by local codes.

U.S. government wins first round in trial to take ownership of Mongols Motorcycle Club’s prized patches

Since the case is focused on the Mongols organization, no specific individuals are facing jail or prison time

A federal jury on Thursday found that the notorious Mongols Motorcycle Club is guilty of racketeering, setting up a second phase of the trial at a Santa Ana courthouse where the government will try to seize control of the organization’s trademark.

Federal prosecutors want to take possession of the trademark so they can keep members from wearing the prized patches worn on the bikers’ vests, an attempt to break the back of the Mongols.

In finding the Mongols guilty of racketeering, jurors decided that the outlaw motorcycle club itself is a criminal organization that has supported drug trafficking and encouraged vicious assaults and even murder.

Suspected drug dealer killed breaking into Whitewater Township home to collect debt

WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) - A man was shot and killed while breaking into a home in Whitewater Township early Wednesday, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. Investigators identified him as Andrew Naegele, 26. That homeowner, John Heard, is now charged.

Heard, called 911 and reported that he had shot a man in the chest as he was breaking into his home on Ohio 128 near Cilley Road just before 1 a.m.

During the 911 call, Heard said that the man he shot and killed was a member of the Iron Horsemen outlaw motorcycle club who also came to his house on Monday night to "rough him up," but he didn't know him.

"I told him to leave, leave, leave," the man said on the call to 911. "And he come at me and he knew that I had a gun. And he kept coming. I had to shoot him.”

Deputies interviewed the homeowner. They say Heard admitted that Naegele was his drug dealer there to collect money he owed for methamphetamine.

‘I like to make things.’ Meet the expert gun builder at the center of the R.I. biker gangs case

In March, two months before explosives experts blew open two Woonsocket motorcycle clubs, state police detectives say they listened in on a phone call between the clubs’ leaders. One talked of killing Christine DeSpain — the woman who made guns in her basement.

“I expected her to show up today,” an angry Rodney P. Lambert, head of the Kryptmen club, is quoted in an affidavit as saying, ”...and I would shoot her in the head.”

Obviously, relations between Lambert and a once ally who investigators say played an important role in the clubs’ illicit activities had dangerously soured.

DeSpain, 47, was a regular at the Kryptmen’s clubhouse, an old, fenced-in industrial building on Second Avenue that backed up to a wooded lot. There she rubbed elbows with who she calls “some of the last real men” and discussed shared hobbies: cars, motorcycles — and guns.

DeSpain knew more about manufacturing firearms and how to use them, investigators say, than any biker.

Strong police presence in Collie for Rebels club run

(video) --- Collie was inundated with police over the weekend, with approximately 100 officers from Perth making the trip down due to the Rebels’ club run.

Collie Police Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said with 60 Rebels members, nominees and associates staying in the area over the weekend, the contingent of police officers from the Gang Crime Squad had also arrived to ensure the bikies ‘behaved themselves’.

“We had no trouble here in Collie over the weekend,” he said.

“They spent the night just outside of Collie, and we had a lot of the police officers also stay the night in town so we would have been very well prepared if anything had happened.”
