Police raid motorcycle club in Fall River days after fatal shooting

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) – Police conducted a search of the Sidewinders Motorcycle clubhouse in Fall River Thursday, nearly a week after a biker brawl ended in a fatal shooting in the city.

Fall River police vehicles, including a large van, as well as unmarked Massachusetts State Police cruisers, could be seen behind an industrial building on Kilburn Street.

Multiple businesses are in the building, and an employee who asked not to be identified confirmed the Sidewinders have space there.

“They have been great tenants,” the employee said. “Never a problem.”

He said he did not know what the police operation was about.

Investigators also raided a building with ties to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club on Thursday.

Winnipeg police raid Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouse for selling booze without a licence

Club believed 'Donations only' signs above bar would prevent police from busting them, search documents say

Winnipeg police raided two Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouses and charged three people with selling liquor without a licence under the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act.

The search warrants were executed in December 2018 after police said they received information from three people that the Hells Angels were selling liquor without a licence inside two clubhouses in rural Manitoba houses. One is in the rural municipality of Rosser, the other on Redonda Street in the rural municipality of Springfield.

Police affidavits say the informants told investigators there is a set price for booze at the clubhouse bars and the Angels believed that law enforcement couldn't investigate them if they put up signs that said "Donations."

No grounds for murder try charge; Burlingame gets assault misdemeanor

The former Lathrop Manteca firefighter that was facing charges of attempted murder for a stabbing outside of a Manteca nightspot in December of 2017 has received probation.

Brandon Dean Burlingame, 36, accepted a plea deal Monday morning in which he pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery. 

According to Burlingame’s attorney Allen Sawyer, his client – who was facing felony charges that could have landed him in prison for life – will serve no additional jail time and will be placed on informal probation for three years, after which time the charge will be dismissed. 

As long as Burlingame’s probation isn’t violated, Sawyer said, the charge agreed to in the plea is eligible to become a simple assault charge.

‘This ain’t “Sons of Anarchy” ': Savage Assassins say officers trashed their party

The Savage Assassins might look tough. Many are covered in tattoos and wear patches depicting a satanic figure. All drive big Harleys.

But the motorcycle group’s founder, J. Upton, says Fresno deputies are the savage ones.

Upton said deputies crashed a Savage Assassins party last weekend, damaging property and toting off personal belongings in their search for an armed felon. The Savage Assassins said they don’t know the wanted man.

Fresno sheriff’s officials said seven “affiliates of a motorcycle gang” were arrested and 43 were detained early Sunday morning after an hours-long standoff. Of those arrested, only Rey Rodriguez, 31, of Fresno and Stephen Meza, 58, of Tulare were accused of being gang members in possession of firearms.

Upton, 39, said his group and the party’s guests were discriminated against because of their appearance, and they were slandered by being called a “gang.”

Judge Refuses to Dismiss Murder Charge Involving Officer’s Killing

A judge refused Thursday to dismiss a second-degree murder count against a man charged with the shooting death of a Pomona SWAT officer who was helping to serve a search warrant at the San Gabriel home of the defendant’s family.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo said dismissal of the most serious charge against David Martinez was “not warranted,” telling attorneys that it will be up to a jury to decide if the defendant should be convicted or acquitted of the Oct. 28, 2014, killing of Officer Shaun Diamond.

The 45-year-old officer — who had 16 years of law enforcement experience with the Los Angeles, Montebello and Pomona police departments — died a day after the early-morning shooting.
