Bikie war fears as Victoria Police on high alert after gang tit-for-tat attacks

POLICE are on high alert as two of the state’s leading bikie gangs could be set to reignite a war, after tit-for-tat attacks on each other by the Comancheros and Rebels.

A bashing and retaliatory firebombing in recent weeks has heralded an end to a truce between the two rival outlaw motorcycle gangs, which had lasted just over a year.

Police brokered the peace deal between the gangs in a meeting in Sydney in May 2015. But the recent violence in Melbourne has shattered the peace and it is understood police could consider turning to anti-consorting laws in a bid to stop the feud.

REBELS outlaw motorcycle gang members have been targeted on their return to Tasmania this morning, with Tasmania Police conducting a traffic operation within the grounds of the Spirit of Tasmania terminal in Devonport.

Man who pulled in front of deputies is accused of impeding chase; cyclist is accused of witness tampering

OSCEOLA, Mo. - A man from Stockton is charged with interfering with a law enforcement chase on Missouri 13 last summer. St. Clair County deputies were trying to stop two speeding motorcycles on July 16 when they say Jeremy Schies, 31, got in their way and then tried to cause a crash.

The chase started in Osceola when an officer tried to pull over two motorcyclists who were speeding north on Missouri 13. The bikers kept going seven miles to Lowry City and then turned back south. Several deputies joined the chase by that time. When the motorcyclists passed back through Osceola, deputies say, they were going about 135 miles per hour.

North of Collins, the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department says, the motorcycles passed a truck driven by Schies, who was pulling a trailer. Deputies said the truck switched lanes in front of a deputy to prevent the deputy from chasing the bikers.

Outlaws comply with laws during Tasmanian run

THE convoy of Outlaws motorcycle club members who flocked to Tasmania last weekend were well behaved for the most part, police say.

More than 120 members of the group arrived on the island via the Spirit of Tasmania during their national run last Friday.

The Outlaws have “well-established” international links to crime, police believe.

Tasmania Police said it was aware of the group’s travel plans and upped patrols across the state to monitor criminal activity.

But the force was pleasantly surprised with the results, Serious Organised Crime Unit Detective Inspector Glen Ball said.

“The vast majority of the (outlaw motorcycle gang) members complied with the road rules and only a small number of infringements (less than 10) were issued during the course of their attendance,” he said.

“Outlaws OMCG members were subjected to in excess of 100 RBTs and 20 drug tests with one positive drug test reported.”

Judge Refuses To Remove Prosecutor In Waco Biker Shootings

WACO (AP) — A judge has refused to disqualify a Central Texas district attorney who’s prosecuting more than 150 bikers indicted in last year’s deadly gun battle at a Waco restaurant.

District Judge Matt Johnson on Thursday denied a motion, on behalf of two bikers, to have McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna removed.

Critics say Reyna overstepped his authority in having so many bikers arrested following the May 2015 shootout that left nine people dead. Records show 154 bikers face charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Reyna is also the subject of lawsuits by some bikers alleging they were unlawfully arrested and jailed on bonds of $1 million.
An attorney for one biker who sought to remove Reyna said he’s disappointed with Thursday’s decision and will evaluate his next step.

Austin-area men sue Waco police over arrests in biker shootout

Two Austin-area men who were present at a 2015 shootout during a gathering of motorcycle clubs and riders in Waco have filed federal civil rights lawsuits against law enforcement officials there.

Complaints filed on Tuesday allege Waco Police Department Chief Brent Stroman, Detective Manuel Chavez, District Attorney Abelino Reyna and an unnamed Texas Department of Public Safety employee arrested William Brent Redding of Travis County and Thomas Paul Landers of Williamson County solely based upon their presence at the incident and the clothes they were wearing. Redding and Landers are both members of the Escondidos Motorcycle Club, according to the complaint, whose patches bare a similar color scheme to that of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, which is listed as an outlaw motorcycle gang by the FBI’s National Gang Report.

Bikies nabbed in Melbourne raids consider themselves ‘untouchable’, cops tell court

TWO Rebels bikies ran down a member of the Comancheros after bashing him at a family restaurant in one of three public attacks in recent weeks, a court has heard.

Clayton Foelmli, 24, and Dale Moore, 33, are behind bars on a string of assault charges after raids on several Melbourne homes by Victoria Police’s anti-bikie taskforce this morning.

Detective Senior Constable Emma Hayes told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court this afternoon the men were arrested over three separate attacks in the past month.

“The pair have a total disregard for others in the community and have an untouchable mentality,” Sen-Constable Hayes said.

Magistrate Julie Ann O’Donnell heard Mr Foelmli and Mr Moore set upon a patron at the Sandown Park Hotel in Noble Park at 6.30pm on October 1, telling him “no one f---s with our club.”

The victim didn’t report the incident to police but it was captured on CCTV, the court heard.

Murder charge laid in shooting death of Hells Angels member

(video)--A murder charge has been laid in connection with the shooting death of a Hells Angels member in B.C.

Burnaby resident Robert Keith Green was found gravely wounded on Sunday morning in Langley, and later died of his injuries. The 56-year-old is described by homicide investigators as a well-connected member of the gang who has a criminal record.

Cpl. Meghan Foster said 27-year-old Jason Francis Wallace was determined to be a suspect in the homicide on Monday, and he was subsequently arrested at a Surrey road stop.

Wallace, whom police have previously linked to Langley's 856 gang, is now charged with second-degree murder.

Foster says the motive in the homicide remains unclear and that the investigation remains in its infancy.

"Homicides related to organized crime can be complicated and lengthy," she said in a statement.
