Queens motorcycle club members sentenced to prison terms for armored car theft

Three members of a Queens-based motorcycle club were sentenced Wednesday to lengthy prison terns for their roles in the theft of $510,000 from an armored car two years ago.

The three included the driver of the GardaWorld armored car from which the money was taken in November 2018 , and a son and father who also were fellow members of the Unknown Bikers Motorcycle Club, according to officials.

The armored car had been left parked and unlocked in front of a Valley Stream HSBC branch in the early morning while the driver and an accompanying GardaWorld employee, known as a messenger, went into the branch to replenish ATMs, officials said.

The son, Raymond Soto, Jr., 29, of Richmond Hill, who uses the nickname “Rambo,” was driven near to the site by his father Raymond Soto, Sr., 49, also of Richmond Hill, entered the unlocked armored car, drove it several blocks away, and removed three bags containing a total of $510,00, officials said.

Youngstown motorcycle club remembers history celebrating anniversary

The club started back in 1939

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – On Saturday, a Youngstown motorcycle club celebrated their 82nd anniversary.

The Pirate Motorcycle Club started back in 1939.

Photos show some of the original members dating back to that time.

Provided by members, the photos showcase past hill climbs, poker runs and drag race events.

Eventually, the club purchased property near East Palestine to host events which were family oriented for members.

“Afterwards, we always had a picnic with the family and the kids, and we’d bring go karts and mini bikes for the kids to ride and we’d have soccer games on our bikes and entertain ourselves,” said the club president Rabbit.

The club hasn’t hosted any events since the 80’s.

Now, they gather yearly to share their history with the public.

Suspected motorcycle gang leader caught

CANNONSBURG The long arm of the law caught up with the suspected leader of a local motorcycle gang early Thursday.

Anthony “Gibby” Gibbs, 50, was wanted on a warrant for methamphetamine trafficking following a Jan. 9 raid of a house on Booth Quillen Road in Meads. The Ashland Police Department SWAT raided his home following an investigation by the Northeast Kentucky Drug Task Force.

An arrest citation shows Gibbs didn’t go far.

The Boyd County Sheriff’s Department received a tip Thursday that Gibbs was staying at the Cannonsburg Fairfield Inn, 2 miles from where the raid took place. The tipster told deputies Gibbs was driving an early 2000s Dodge flatbed pick-up truck spray painted black, according to the citation. When the deputy saw the truck pull into the hotel’s parking lot, records show he stopped it.

Witness IDs defendant as shooter in motorcycle club homicide

A man injured in a shooting at a Pontiac motorcycle club last year that left another man — 41-year-old Mecca Ramsey — dead, testified in Oakland County Circuit Court on Thursday that prosecutors have it right in charging Gregory “Transformer” Kincade for the crimes.

As the trial continued Thursday before Judge Shalina Kumar, Malcolm “Tank” Chamber told jurors that he was in the Night Riders Motorcycle Club’s bathroom with Ramsey when Kincade came through the door and bullets began to fly on April 27, 2019. Kincade told him to turn away or he’d be killed, Chambers testified.

There’s no evidence of anyone witnessing the shooting.

Bombs, drugs, white supremacist literature part of case against Niagara Falls man

The federal government says Jeffrey Richards is a self-proclaimed white supremacist who makes bombs, sell drugs, owns a small arsenal of guns and holds membership in an outlaw biker gang.

In a photo posted on Facebook, Richards holds his right arm up in a Nazi-style salute between two friends, one wearing a T-shirt with a Confederate flag image and the other holding a Viking horn.

Yet, his defenders say the 29-year-old Niagara Falls man is mentally troubled, possesses a heart of gold and is willing to do anything to please others, even if it leads him into bad company.

“He is not a racist," Kathleen Kephart said of her son, "but I won’t say he’s not prejudiced.”

The year-old case against Richards in U.S. District Court in Buffalo comes at a time when hate group members and supporters are often linked to horrific crimes that have Americans concerned about their safety in public places.

Is Richards an agent of this hatred?
