Leader of Tijuana MC Gang Admits to Leading Jeep Theft Ring in SD

After stealing more than 150 jeeps worth $4.5 million in San Diego County, the suspects would strip down the vehicles and sell the parts in Tijuana, according to the U.S. Attorney.

The leader of a Tijuana motorcycle gang pleaded guilty Tuesday to leading a sophisticated vehicle theft scheme that targeted Jeep Wranglers north of the border.

According to court documents, Jimmy “Motas” Josue Martinez and his gang, the Hooligans, are responsible for stealing more than 150 Jeep Wranglers within this county alone since 2014.

Martinez, 33, admitted that he and other gang members hacked security systems in the trucks and used secret codes and duplicate keys to take $4.5 million worth of Wranglers, some right out of the driveways of unsuspecting owners.

The jeeps were taken and transported south of the border to Tijuana where they were sold or stripped for valuables, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Alleged bikers want charges thrown out

Lawyers for three reported Vikings members argue for dismissal under Jordan ruling

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. —

Lawyers for a trio of alleged Vikings Motorcycle Club members charged with drug trafficking and criminal organization offences are arguing for a dismissal of the charges, given the length of time it has taken to bring the men to trial.

Vincent Leonard Sr., James Curran and Wayne Johnson were arrested Sept. 28, 2016 as part of a joint RCMP/RNC investigation called Operation Bombard.

However, much of the disclosure in the case against them — which amounts to hundreds of thousands of pages of documents in total — was not given to their lawyers until October 2018.

The men had been scheduled to go to trial Jan. 15 of this year. Proceedings were postponed after their lawyers successfully argued they didn't have enough time to review the 60,000 pages they received in the fall in order to build a defence.

JOHN SMITH: BIKIES TURN OUT IN THEIR HUNDREDS TO FAREWELL MINISTER TO THE MARGINALISED

They came in their hundreds - bikers from Christian clubs like God's Squad and Longriders alongside those wearing the colours of so-called outlaw clubs like the Immortals and the Bandidos, to join in paying their final respects to preacher John Smith at a memorial service in the Victorian coastal community of Ocean Grove on Saturday.

The bikies were among an estimated 1,500 people who attended the service held at the Wave Church to bid farewell to Smith - who founded the God's Squad Christian Motorcyle Club as an outreach to other clubs - after he died on 6th March at the age of 76 following a long battle with cancer.

Smith, known to many simply as "Smithy", was remembered by those who gathered as a man who had ministered to the marginalised, as a pioneer of counter-cultural mission and as a John Wesley of his age with the impact of his ministry for the cause of Christ felt across the nation and beyond.
