Vic Hells Angel to stand trial for bombing

A Victorian member of the Hells Angels has been committed to stand trial over his alleged hand in bombings targeting rival bikie gang the Bandidos.

Dennis Basic, 34, of Frankston, is alleged to have made an explosive device detonated at the Bandidos Dandenong clubhouse in July and two undetonated devices found at the Nitro gym in Hallam in September.

Basic pleaded not guilty to more than 30 charges that also include weapons charges, in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.

He also faces charges relating to the bombing of a car in Narre Warren last May.

The device used in the Narre Warren car bombing was consistent with the type of explosive used in the Dandenong bombing, Detective Senior Constable Glen Hatton said in a court statement.

The device used in the Dandenong bombing was "identical in manufacture" to the devices used at the gym, he said.

Trial day set for Hells Angels case

LAKE COUNTY -- A battle for information in the case of three Hells Angels Motorcycle Club members who allegedly severely beat a member of a rival motorcycle club member concluded Friday afternoon after the judge instructed the prosecution what information it must turn over. A trial date was also scheduled.

The defense presented the motion for the information in July on behalf of defendants Timothy R. Bianchi, Nicholas F. Carrillo and Josh L. Johnson in July.

The motion was reviewed several times in court and both sides presented arguments for what the defense was entitled to receive from the prosecution, with the last two hearings approaching a compromise for a narrower and specified request from the prosecution.

Feds drop criminal charges against San Jose lawyer in gang case

In a surprise move, federal prosecutors on Tuesday abandoned their criminal case against a San Jose lawyer who had been charged with playing a role in tipping off the target of a major South Bay drug investigation.

The U.S. attorney's office dropped a January indictment against Michael Edward Hingle, who was accused of revealing the drug probe to a notorious Hells Angels officer later shot to death in an unrelated incident. Hingle is known for representing Hells Angels

Federal prosecutors did not explain a reason for the decision, which was disclosed in a brief court filing. But Hingle's lawyer told this newspaper that prosecutors dropped the case after being presented evidence showing there had been no wrongdoing.

"The government did the right thing," said Mary McNamara, Hingle's lawyer.

Hell's Angels disturb the peace at Sittard

Tens of thousands of visitors to the traditional Saint Joep market in Sittard furrowed their brows when the marketplace was suddenly overrun with Hells Angels.

In their Hells Angels MC jackets, the gang members spoke Flemmish as well as German. A mobile unit quickly sprung into action and descended on the mass armed with baton, shield and helmet.

Many families with children were slightly shocked at being so unceremoniously interrupted of their calm day in the sunshine, shuffling from stall to stall, just looking for a relaxed day. Part of the shopping center was even shut down by the mobile unit.

Here and there, some people tried to get through the barriers, out of curiosity or just a desire to get back to their cars. Some diversions needed to be set up for this.

Jake Sawyer

Here he comes just’a walkin’ down the street, commanding the space he occupies. The swagger, the sculpted body, the outrageous clothes. It’s gotta be Jake Sawyer, and it is. Jazzed about something, as usual. Whatever Jake’s into, he’s into all the way. He’s got a way of meeting life head on and going for it, consequences be damned.3-13-14-gallant-cliff

TEST CASE: Hells Angel Steffen, who has no criminal convictions, will challenge Queensland’s bikie laws in the High Court. Source: Facebook

 

MEET the “straw man” Queensland bikies are banking on in a high-stakes bid to knock down the Newman Government’s criminal gang laws.

The Courier-Mail can reveal that Hells Angels tattooist “Steffen” will be the face of a High Court challenge by peak body the United Motorcycle Council.

Legal sources said the Poland-born bikie – who is believed to have no businesses, properties or major assets – is a “smart” choice for legal action that could cost the loser up to $500,000.

The tattooist has no recorded criminal convictions but is barred from working in his former home state of NSW under laws banning bikies from the industry there from last year.

Riders fined at Poker Run

Gang members descend on city for group ride

MASS TURNOUT: Hells Angels and other riders at the Vanguard and Gloucester streets roundabout on Saturday.

 

 Police who shadowed a Poker Run in Nelson say they were disappointed at the behaviour of motorcycle gang members and their associates.

Around 95 motorcyclists, including gang members, took part in the group ride in the Nelson Bays area over the weekend.

Police issued more than 50 infringement notices to members of the group, the majority for speed, careless driving or riding on the wrong class of licence.

One rider travelling to the event was caught travelling at 104kmh in a 50kmh zone. He received a roadside suspension and will face court action, a police spokesperson said.
