THUMPERRRR's picture

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Las Vegas say telephoned bomb threats are reasons to deny bail to a defendant in a criminal racketeering case involving 23 accused Vagos motorcycle club leaders, members or associates.

Defense attorney Chris Rasmussen on Thursday dismissed the account by prosecutors as a desperate and unsubstantiated attempt to keep his client, John Seimer (SEE'-mer), in federal custody until trial.

Court filings cited two telephoned threats last Saturday to the FBI and Los Angeles police.

Prosecutors said both referred to the June 16 arrests of Vagos case defendants and named Seimer.

One caller also named two other defendants and said a bomb had been placed to explode on or before Friday.

The FBI and U.S. prosecutors didn't immediately respond to telephone and email messages.
