Police: 5 with ties to Outlaws Motorcycle Club found with guns, meth in Brockton

BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - Five people with ties to a motorcycle club are facing gun and drug charges after police seized handguns and methamphetamine while the group was in Brockton for a funeral Friday, state police said.

Troopers patrolling the Motel 6 on Westgate Drive at 2 p.m. talked to a Tennessee man they believed to be a member of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club and found out he was carrying a handgun without a Massachusetts license, police said. Troopers also allegedly found ammunition, brass knuckles and crystal methamphetamine in his car.

Troopers allegedly learned another Tennessee club member with a gun was staying at the motel and allegedly saw a .45 caliber pistol on his nightstand. The man allegedly did not have a license to carry in Massachusetts.

President of Outlaws Motorcycle Club Indicted on Firearms Charges

BOSTON — The regional president of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury in Boston for possession of an unregistered firearm.

Bruce Sartwell, a.k.a. “Monster,” 48, of East Bridgewater, was indicted on one count of possession of an unregistered firearm. Sartwell was charged by criminal complaint and arrested in October 2019.

As alleged in the charging documents, Sartwell is the Regional President of the Brockton/East Bridgewater Chapters of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. On Oct. 19, 2019, agents intercepted a package originating in China and addressed to Sartwell that was declared as a “Fuel Filter” but actually contained a firearm silencer. A review of importation records revealed that Sartwell had received approximately 65 shipments from Asia (over 55 from China), many of which were labeled as innocuous items that could have been more easily and cheaply purchased in the United States.

Police to enforce new laws on Outlaw OMCG run

Tasmania Police is now enforcing the new laws banning the wearing of insignia of five outlaw motorcycle gangs, including at a planned run of the Outlaws OMCG today.

The new legislation affects five identified outlaw motorcycle gangs: Bandidos, Outlaws, Devils Henchman, Black Uhlans and Rebels. These are criminal gangs and their colours are designed to show affiliation with this criminality and intimidate others. The new laws don’t affect other motorcycle clubs.

Commander Brett Smith said that Tasmania Police was aware that a group of Outlaws OMCG members plan to hold a memorial run in northern Tasmania today.

“Tasmania Police has been liaising with them to ensure members understand that they will be closely monitored, and that criminal and anti-social behaviour won’t be tolerated in our state,” he said.

Motorcycle club aims to dispel perceptions -- Outlaws come to Anderson

(pics) --- ANDERSON — Anthony “Tony” Lupica sat on a bar stool inside one of three buildings he recently acquired from the former motorcycle club known as the Ratcoons.

Lupica, 67, said he purchased the property to open a chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club — a nationwide organization known as 1%ers.

The American Motorcycle Association helped coin the 1%er term during a motorcycle rally held in 1947 in Hollister, California.

The organization stated at the time that 99% of the people at their events were God-fearing and family oriented. The other 1% were hard riding, hard partying, non-mainstream people.

Lupica said the term isn’t about the baddest of the bad — they just like to do things in extreme.

60 years for ‘calling shots’ in grisly death

A judge has sentenced a man to 60 years in prison after hearing a video statement of the defendant giving a detailed description of how he helped dismember and dispose of the body of a woman found in Greene County in 2013.

Brandon Chittum, 36, formerly of Alton, was sentenced Friday by Associate Judge Neil Schroeder after prosecutors introduced a taped statement that was excluded from the trial in which Chittum was found guilty of first-degree murder, dismembering a human body, and concealing a homicidal death.

Chittum was found guilty under the accountability theory, which holds that he helped participate in the act and was accountable for the acts of co-defendant Patrick Chase, who admitted to carrying out the killing.

Assistant Madison County State’s Attorney Crystal Uhe argued that Chittum deserved the same 70-year sentence as Chase was given for the crime. She had argued during the trial that Chittum coached Chase in killing Coats, his then-girlfriend.
