Authorities tapped phone of leader of biker gang

Court affidavit outlines Deric “Tuna” McGuire’s rise to head of Pagans motorcycle club.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — For almost a year, state and federal agents wiretapped the many different telephones used by a Burrillville man, capturing, they say, his recruitment to lead a new Rhode Island chapter of the Pagans outlaw motorcycle gang and documenting his illegal drug enterprise.

Hundreds of transcribed pages of recorded conversations between Deric “Tuna” McGuire and his associates were unsealed Tuesday as part of the state police’s Operation Patched Out investigation, which in May led to more than 50 people arrested.

The recorded conversations are part of a 1,274-page affidavit that supported dozens of searches of homes, cars and motorcycles when scores of agents swept across northern Rhode Island making arrests.

Sussex Hells Angel accused calls mob claim 'absurd'

A Hell's Angels leader accused of attacking a biker outside a pub told a court he "wasn't put on this planet to scare people".

Prosecutor Nicolas Cooper told the Old Bailey Matthew Barnes, 48, had led a "mob" to confront Christopher Harrison.

But Mr Barnes denied intimidating anyone and said Mr Cooper's suggestion was "absurd".

Mr Barnes, from Hastings, and Oliver Wilkinson, of St Leonards, deny causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

They are both accused of attacking Mr Harrison outside The Carlisle pub in Hastings in February 2016, causing him serious eye injuries.

Mr Harrison has alleged former Sussex chapter president Mr Barnes head-butted him and Mr Wilkinson, 50, of Duke Road, St Leonards, punched him.

They think the camaraderie is there based on the TV show and they're joining up,' says Const. Scott Morrison

"Ever since the phenomenon of Sons of Anarchy, more people want to join that life, [they] think it's a brotherhood, " said Const. Scott Morrison. "They think the camaraderie is there based on the television show and they're joining up."

Morrison was part of a presentation on biker gangs to the Halifax Board of Police Commissioners.

RCMP Const. Scott Morrison said many of the friend or support clubs in Nova Scotia are affiliated with either the Bacchus or the Hells Angels. (Radio-Canada)

Don't support organized crime by buying biker gear in Port Dover: OPP

Provincial police are reminding people planning to attend Friday the 13th in Port Dover they could be unwittingly supporting organized crime groups by purchasing and wearing gear related to outlaw biker gangs.

They say the purchase of gang gear directly fuels illegal activities such as drug trafficking, violence, intimidation and human trafficking.

The O-P-P also says tensions between members of the Outlaws and the Hells Angels have been mounting.

And they say wearing any recognized gang-related clothing or paraphernalia may put people at risk of being targeted by rival outlaw motorcycle gang members.

Port Dover is on the north shore of Lake Erie, about an hour southwest of Hamilton.

Portuguese police nab dozens of Hells Angels biker gang members

LISBON (Reuters) - Over 400 Portuguese police, including the antiterrorism unit, detained several dozen members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club in raids on 80 homes and localities across the country on Wednesday.

Police said the operation followed investigations into the international group’s activities in Portugal, adding that some of its members were “extremely dangerous”, with long criminal records and long experience of organized violent crime.

The raids took place about a week before an annual international motorcycle gathering in Faro in southern Portugal, which brings together thousands of bikers from all over Europe.

One of the investigations has been looking into an attack in March by a group of Hells Angels members, some of them foreign, against a rival motorcycle gang and their allies from a neo-Nazi group in what the authorities believe is a turf war for control of illicit guns and drug trade.
