That was that. I wonder who is next...
Outlaws Motorcycle National President Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison
WASHINGTON – The national president of the American Outlaw Association (Outlaws) motorcycle gang was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for leading a violent criminal organization.
U.S. Attorney Neil H. MacBride of the Eastern District of Virginia; Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division; and Rich Marianos, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) Washington Field Division made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson.
“Jack Rosga led an outlaw motorcycle gang that was violent at its core,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “As the gang’s national president, Mr. Rosga declared war on the rival Hell’s Angels and ordered violent acts on rival gang members. Mr. Rosga admitted to undercover federal agents that he expected to go to jail for leading this violent motorcycle gang, and the jury convicted him of conspiracy to commit racketeering and violent acts. He spent decades dedicated to a criminal way of life, and he’ll now spend decades in prison paying for those crimes.”
“The Outlaws motorcycle gang that Jack Rosga led is responsible for numerous crimes across multiple states,” said Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Mr. Rosga’s conduct, and the violent activities of his organized criminal enterprise, must have severe consequences. Today’s sentence reflects that. We will not tolerate organized criminal gangs in our communities.”
“This investigation is one of many that reinforces ATF’s commitment to fighting violent crime,” said ATF Acting Special Agent in Charge Rich Marianos. “In partnership with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, we will continue to focus our efforts on putting the worst of the worst violent criminals behind bars so that our neighbors can feel safer in their communities.”
The national president of the Oulaws organization, Jack Rosga, aka “Milwaukee Jack,” 53, was found guilty on Dec. 21, 2010, of conspiring to engage in racketeering activities and conspiring to commit violence in aid of racketeering. To date, 27 individuals have been charged as a result of a long-term investigation into criminal activities of the Outlaws motorcycle gang. Twenty have either pled guilty or were convicted at trial.
According to court documents and evidence at trial, the Outlaws motorcycle gang is a highly organized criminal enterprise with a defined, multi-level chain of command that is ultimately overseen by Rosga, the national president. Leaders and members of the Outlaws in multiple states including Wisconsin, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina and Virginia are charged in a June 2010 indictment. Under Rosga’s leadership, the enterprise is alleged to have engaged in violent racketeering activities with the intent to expand its influence and to control various parts of the country against rival motorcycle gangs, particularly the Hell’s Angels.
Court records indicate that the Outlaws planned multiple acts of violence against rival motorcycle gangs, including shows of force at the Cycle Expo in Henrico County, Va., in 2006; Dinwiddie Racetrack in Virginia in 2008; the Cockades Bar in Petersburg, Va., in 2009; Daytona Bike Week in Florida in 2009; and the Easyrider Bike Expo in Charlotte, N.C., in 2010. The indictment alleges that in the Cockades Bar show of force, members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club joined the Outlaws in the assault against rival gangs.
In addition, the evidence showed that in 2008, the Outlaws established a clubhouse in Rock Hill, S.C., in territory traditionally controlled by the Hell’s Angels. The Outlaws understood that this act would create violent friction between the two organizations.
Court records also established that in September 2009, two members of the Outlaws were assaulted in Connecticut by members of the Hell’s Angels. This caused the Outlaws to increase their already violent approach to the Hell’s Angels in retaliation. In October 2009, this led to the alleged attempted murder of a Hell’s Angels member outside the Hell’s Angels’ clubhouse in Canaan, Maine. The victim was seriously injured from gunshot wounds to his neck.
In addition, the evidence showed that on April 17, 2010, Outlaw members of the Milwaukee and other Wisconsin chapters in the Gold Region, participated in a charitable event known as the Flood Run, crossing from Wisconsin into Minnesota where they brutally beat members of the Hell’s Angels and stole their club patches, also known as “colors.”
Witnesses at the trial also testified that the Outlaws regularly used and distributed narcotics and regularly used firearms or other dangers weapons.
The case was investigated by the ATF’s Washington Field Division; the FBI’s Washington Field Office; the Virginia State Police; the Chesterfield County Police Department; the Maine State Police, and numerous other law enforcement partners throughout the country. The prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Dennis Fitzpatrick and Peter S. Duffey, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Sam Kaplan, and Trial Attorney Theryn G. Gibbons of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division’s Gang Unit.

Sleazy Riders: Crime fears as notorious biker gang The Outlaws set up their first Scottish chapter
By Paul O'Hare, Daily Record, Friday, September 2, 2011
A NOTORIOUS biker gang with links to organised crime have set up their first chapter in Scotland.
The formation of the Scottish branch of the Outlaws comes just months after European police agency Europol warned we were an "untapped market".
The new branch have already received good luck messages from chapters across Europe, including Germany, France, Poland, Iceland and the Czech Republic.
Police last night confirmed they are monitoring the development.
A message posted by the chapter in Newport, Wales, read: "Congratulations to our Brothers in Scotland - The First Outlaw MC Chapter in Scotland.
"Hopefully many more to follow."
Details about the membership of the Scottish chapter, who were set up in July, are sketchy but sources have indicated it is based in Dundee.
It is understood Scots bikers recently travelled to Pentrich, Derbyshire, to meet English counterparts.
One of the group's leaders, nicknamed Lopez, used the gang's website to express his gratitude for the good wishes.
He posted: "On behalf of Outlaws MC Scotland, we would like to thank our brothers across the nation for their messages of support and the opportunity to expand the nation."
Four years ago, motorbike gangs hit the headlines after Hells Angel Gerry Tobin was shot dead on the M40 in Warwickshire.
Seven men, who were members of the South Warwickshire chapter of the Outlaws, were jailed for the murder.
There are 24 English chapters, six in Wales and six in Ireland.
Experts believe there are around 500 motorcycle gangs in Europe.
The Outlaws, founded in 1935 in a bar on Route 66 near Chicago, is one of the biggest.
The gang have a nwe presence around the globe, with more than 200 chapters in Europe, Australia, Asia, the US and Canada.
Members wear black leather jackets with a crossed piston and skull motif on the back.
The threat posed by biker gangs was highlighted by the Record last November after we travelled to Europol HQ in The Hague, in the Netherlands.
Detective Sergeant David Wilson told us it was only a matter of time before gangs such as the Outlaws, Hells Angels and Banditos reached Scotland.
Wilson, Scottish liaison to Europol, said: "They are the Mafia in leather jackets, a real worldwide network that can supply drugs and firearms.
"The gangs are into prostitution and extortion and will control a town."
The team at Europol gave the Record unprecedented access to witness first hand their war on the underworld.
One of their key tasks is identifying the criminal threats of the future - and biker gangs are near the top of the agenda.
Europol director general Rob Wainwright told us: "These gangs are certainly responsible for a large amount of criminal activity and in some cases a very serious criminal activity, including drug trafficking."
He added: "They have an infrastructure already in the UK and I'd expect them to treat that as a natural opportunity."
Wilson, of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, said the gangs present a major challenge to police.
He said: "You can't argue with what has happened elsewhere in Europe.
"They profit from drugs and extortion and they are also very public in what they do. Because they have a network which spawns right across the Atlantic, to a certain extent, it is secure.
"They have their own systems in place and their own trust.
"They only deal with certain people who are already members of these gangs.
"To disrupt them is very, very difficult."

Biker 'overwhelmed' by 60-year sentence
Member of Sarno crew planned 2003 Berwyn bombing
October 29, 2011|By Annie Sweeney, Chicago Tribune reporter
The hulking biker stood before a federal judge, his thick forearms crossed behind him and turned up just enough to reveal a hint of tattoos with ominous messages such as "GFOD" — God Forgives, Outlaws Don't.
This is also stamped on Mark Polchan's arm: "1%er," which law enforcement officers say is a boast that Polchan is among the 1 percent of bikers who live a criminal lifestyle.
On Friday, a federal judge sentenced the reputed officer of the Outlaws motorcycle gang to 60 years in federal prison.
Prosecutors said Polchan was part of a reputed Outfit crew that resorted to stabbings, shootings and even a pipe-bomb attack to protect its illegal gambling and robbery operations.
U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman called Polchan's actions nothing short of "terrorizing to the rest of us."
Polchan's attorney, Damon Cheronis, argued for a 35-year sentence, the minimum possible for a bombing in Berwyn in 2003, saying that was long enough for the married father of three to send a message of deterrence.
Guzman disagreed, saying the violence spawned by Polchan and the crew required an even stronger signal to anyone who might think of trying something similar.
Last December a federal jury convicted Polchan, 44, as well as reputed mob boss Michael "The Large Guy" Sarno and three others of running a lucrative illegal video poker racket, pulling off a string of armed robberies and planting a pipe bomb in front of a rival business cutting into their gambling turf.
Prosecutors allege the ring netted more than $1.2 million in jewelry that was then fenced at a Cicero pawn shop owned by Polchan. Polchan also helped authorize the robberies, prosecutors said.
Polchan was paid to plan the bombing outside C & S Coin Operated Amusements, a video poker business targeted by Sarno to protect his illegal gaming operations. No one was injured, but the late-night blast blew out windows and caused extensive damage.
Sarno faces sentencing next month.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Amarjeet Bhachu, who prosecuted the case, said Polchan's pawn shop was the "epicenter" of the crew's criminal schemes. Authorities bugged the shop, hiding three microphones and a video camera there.
Bhachu said Polchan showed a complete disregard for the law, referring to officers as "… suckers."
"That's what his attitude is about federal law enforcement and the law," the prosecutor said.
Guzman noted Polchan's upbringing — by all appearances a positive one — as well as the countless letters of support he received on his behalf.
"He was not abandoned. He was not abused. He was not mistreated," Guzman said. "Why we find ourselves here today is really difficult to comprehend."
Polchan, whose family sat stone-faced in the courtroom, offered little insight. He shook his head often during the sentencing and when Guzman invited him to speak, he said he was "overwhelmed" by what he had heard and declined to deliver his prepared remarks.
"I can't do it," he said.

Judge bans bikers from holding office in Outlaws gang after drugs case
BBC News, June 25, 2012
A judge has banned two Welsh bikers from holding office in a motorcycle gang after they were convicted of drugs offences.
Stuart Dawson and Adrian Sherriff were both jailed in 2010 after being convicted of conspiring to supply amphetamines.
The prosecution sought a serious crimes prevention order to restrict their activities on their release.
Agreement on the orders was reached before trial at Mold Crown Court.
The court heard Dawson, 47, was the European and Asian president of the Outlaws Chapter, and was believed by police to be the most influential member of the Outlaws outside the United States.
Sherriff, of Abergele, Conwy, was believed to be a close aide.
When they were jailed, the judge acknowledged that the Outlaws motorcycle organisation was "perfectly lawful" and that the defendants had brought it into disrepute by their activities.
Dawson, from Old Colwyn, was previously jailed for five years, and Sherrif for four years after they were convicted of conspiring to supply amphetamine.
Initially the police suggested both should be banned from becoming members of the Outlaws but Judge Niclas Parry said that it was his preliminary view that was disproportionate.
Following negotiations between lawyers it was agreed that the two men must not hold office, or seek to hold office in the Outlaws or any affiliated Hells Angels or Black Pistons chapters.
Dawson order runs until May 2015 and Sherriff's order until May 2014.
The order also means they must register any mobile phones, bank accounts or vehicles they have with the police.
They must also notify the police of any foreign trips, giving reasons for the trip, destinations and travel times and dates.
The pair must also register their addresses with the police and notify of any changes or any temporary addressed where they stay for more than 48 hours.
Judge Parry thanked the barristers in the case, and the defendants, for reaching agreement and saving what could have been a week-long trial.

Today the 11th of july, a lot of Outlaws in Indiana were arrested. Here is the indictment.
And a press release.
U.S. Attorney Announces Largest Federal Organized Crime Prosecution in Indianapolis History
Hogsett Says Arrest of Nearly Four Dozen Gang Members is Pivotal Step Toward Safer Indianapolis
U.S. Attorney’s Office
July 11, 2012 Southern District of Indiana
— filed under: Breaking News, Financial, Fraud, Gangs, Major Thefts/Violent Crime, Organized Crime/Drugs, Press Release
INDIANAPOLIS—Early this morning, more than 300 federal, state, and local law enforcement officers, including 11 different SWAT teams, simultaneously converged on more than a dozen locations across Indianapolis. In a matter of hours, 42 arrest warrants and 17 search warrants were successfully executed without incident or serious injury. It was the largest combined federal-local operation in Indianapolis history.
This afternoon, joined by these law enforcement partners, United States Attorney Joseph H. Hogsett announced the arrest and federal indictment of 42 Indianapolis-based members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club (OMC), an international criminal organization alleged to have operated out of a clubhouse located at 305 Jefferson Avenue, on the near-eastside of Indianapolis.
“If you are operating an organized criminal gang in this city, the clock is ticking,” Hogsett said. “It might be tomorrow, it might be weeks from now, but it is only a matter of time before you wake up to the sound of law enforcement at your door.”
In the seventy page, 37-count charging document unsealed this morning, it is alleged that beginning in May 2009, members of Indianapolis OMC engaged in organized criminal activity in Indianapolis and across the state. The indictment charges the 42 alleged gang members with a wide variety of offenses, including racketeering, mail fraud, money laundering, extortion, drug charges, wire fraud, witness tampering, and operating an illegal gambling operation.
“For more than three years, a volatile mixture of guns, drugs, and motorcycles allegedly fueled a dangerous criminal organization in Indianapolis as sophisticated as any business in this city,” Hogsett added. “This morning, we closed down that business for good.”
“This enterprise-based investigation and today’s takedown focused on disrupting and dismantling what the indictment alleges to be a violent, criminal outlaw motorcycle gang by targeting its senior leaders and key members,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Allan Jones. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office, FBI Safe Streets Task Force, and our partner agencies are committed to making the streets of Indiana safer by the disruption and dismantlement of gangs like the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.”
Examples of alleged criminal activities include numerous instances in which OMC members used violence and the threat of force to collect personal debts from individuals in Indianapolis and elsewhere. The members are also alleged to have operated an illegal lottery scheme in Indianapolis that trafficked in thousands of dollars a day.
Additionally, the indictment describes an alleged March 2010 scheme in which members of OMC allegedly recruited and paid an individual to purposely drive a U-Haul truck into the rear of a vehicle containing numerous OMC members, all of whom then filed insurance claims totaling tens of thousands of dollars. In other instances, OMC members are alleged to have hidden the vehicles of other OMC members so as to allow them to collect auto insurance claims for their supposedly stolen vehicles.
Defendants named within the indictment include:
Joshua N. Bowser, age 32
Kent D. Whitinger, age 49
James W. Bain, age 50
Dominic R. Mangine, age 71
Michael A. Schlicher, age 38
Stephen M. Whitinger, age 57
Lawrence Gregory, age 47
Stephen D. Duff, age 22
Steve A. Reynolds, age 37
Joseph Alarcon, age 32
David L. Whitinger, age 54
Ronald P. Taylor, Jr., age 43
Jose Diaz, age 36
Justo Rojas, age 43
Hector Nava-Arrendondo, age 29
Jorge Sedeno-Callejas, age 27
James Stonebraker, age 58
Norvel Terry, age 45
Thomas Swan, age TBD
Michael A. Knoll, age 47
Michael E. Hamilton, age 53
Edward J. Bolen, age 47
Michael Medlin, age 68
Jamie A. Bolinger, age 34
Vance Canner, 43
Bryan E. Glaze, age 20
Richard C. DeMarco, Jr., age TBD
Mark A. Bisel, age 49
Charles N. Ernstes, II, age 52
Joseph Maio, age 59
Pamela K. Cummins, age 44
Rigo Rocha-Lopez, age 34
Carlos Mena, age 47
Jorge Daniel Ledezma-Cruz, age 26
Cesar Granados, age 31
Brian T. Peacock, age 60
Russell Pryor, age TBD
Steven Lecclier, age TBD
Anthony Leach, age 44
William Anderson, age 42
Terrell Adams, age 28
Scharme L. Bolinger, age 34
The indictment further describes the structure and hierarchy of local OMC chapters. Each chapter has a president, vice-president, treasurer, and enforcer. OMC maintained chapters in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne. These local chapters answer to a regional chapter—in this case, the “Black Region”—and finally are under the umbrella of a national leadership body, which coordinates the activities of the numerous regions within OMC.
According the indictment, members are admitted to the OMC after a lengthy, phased process designed to measure a potential member’s commitment to the organization and to guard against law enforcement infiltration. After associating with OMC for a period of time, an individual may become known as a “hangaround,” and, after one year, a hangaround may be sponsored as a “probate,” or prospective member. At all times during this process, it is alleged that these individuals must follow orders by OMC members, often including criminal activity.
After at least six months of acting as a probate, individuals are eligible to become a full member of the OMC by unanimous vote, at which point they may be “patched” and wear identification associated with the gang. This OMC identification involves a leather vest and often includes numerous symbolic patches, including “MC” (motorcycle club), “AOA” (American Outlaws Association), and “1%er” (meant to describe a non-law-abiding motorcycle rider). Other patches and tattoos identified within the indictment include “Snitches are a Dying Breed,” as well as “GFOD,” which stands for “God Forgives, Outlaws Don’t.”
Today’s arrests are the culmination of a lengthy investigation as part of the U.S. Attorney’s Violent Crime Initiative involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, FBI Safe Streets Task Force, the Indiana State Police, the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, as well as the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
According to Senior Litigation Counsel Bradley A. Blackington, who is prosecuting the case for the government, all 42 defendants face up to decades in prison and substantial fines if they are found guilty. Blackington also noted that, if convicted, many of the assets gained through the alleged criminal activity would be eligible for federal forfeiture. A large portion of those proceeds would be reinvested in local law enforcement efforts.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

And now it is Georgias turn...
23 Defendants Charged with Drug and Gun Offenses
Defendants include regional president of Outlaw Motorcycle Club and Georgia president of the Outlaw-Affiliated Black Pistons Motorcycle Club
GAINESVILLE, Georgia – Twenty-three defendants, most with ties to the Outlaw Motorcycle Club in Georgia and its affiliated clubs, have been charged with federal drug and gun offenses arising from an undercover investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
FBI agents and local law enforcement officers cooperating in the investigation arrested 21 of these defendants on Thursday, while also executing seven search warrants at the Outlaw Motorcycle Club clubhouse on Cascade Road in Southwest Georgia; the Hoodlums Motorcycle Club headquarters on South Waterworks Road in Buford, Georgia; and the residences of several defendants.
Six indictments charging 20 defendants and one criminal complaint charging three defendants were unsealed on Thursday in federal court in Gainesville, Georgia, and 20 of the defendants arrested Thursday morning began appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan S. Cole for their initial appearances. Another defendant, arrested in Dallas, Texas, appeared in federal court there also on Thursday. Agents continue to seek the whereabouts of two defendants.
The indictments charge crimes including methamphetamine and cocaine conspiracy and possession, using and carrying firearms during the commission of drug trafficking crimes, conspiracy to illegally make and transfer a destructive device, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, and knowingly transferring a firearm to a convicted felon. The criminal complaint charges three defendants with obstructing the FBI undercover investigation.
“All but two of the defendants charged in this investigation have direct ties to the Outlaw Motorcycle Club or other motorcycle clubs that are affiliated with and controlled by the Outlaws,” said U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “The charges unsealed today allege that these motorcycle club members engaged in substantial drug trafficking and weapons offenses. This case is a big step forward in making sure that these groups don’t threaten the safety of our North Georgia communities.”
Brian D. Lamkin, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated, “Today’s arrests of the numerous members of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club and those of several of its affiliate clubs represents the unified efforts of our region’s law enforcement in addressing a serious and very structured crime problem. The Outlaw Motorcycle Club, its affiliate clubs, and its membership are not above nor beyond the law and today’s arrests, the culmination of a two-year intensive investigation, should serve as clear evidence of that.”
The criminal charges all relate to acts by individuals or small groups of individuals and do not allege that any of the criminal acts were performed on behalf of the motorcycle gangs or as an official part of membership in the gangs.
Among those arrested Thursday was Larry McDaniel, aka “Larry Mack,” 65, of Atlanta, Georgia, who is the president of the Silver Region of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club. The Silver Region encompasses Georgia and Alabama. Also arrested were Sean King, 40, of Gordon, Georgia, a member of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club of Georgia; and Howard Brown, 63, of Milledgeville, Georgia, the Georgia president of the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club. The Black Pistons Motorcycle Club is an affiliated club of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club.
McDaniel, King, and Brown are charged in a criminal complaint with obstructing the FBI undercover investigation in connection with the disclosure to other club members who were targets of the investigation that a member of the Cleveland, Georgia chapter of the Black Pistons was working as an informant for the FBI. McDaniel, King, and Brown made initial appearances before United States Magistrate Judge Susan S. Cole in federal court in Gainesville on Thursday. King and Brown were released on bond during Thursday’s hearings. The United States moved for McDaniel to be held without bond, and a detention hearing for McDaniel has not yet been set.
Also charged in federal indictments unsealed Thursday:
Phillip Alexander, aka “Skullf**ker,” 49, of Buford, Georgia, with aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine and methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.
Walt Verrill, aka “Black Piston Walt,” 48, of Sautee, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy and aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine and methamphetamine with intent to distribute it.
Benny Leverett, aka “Outlaw Benny,” 46, of Buford, Georgia, with aiding and abetting the possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.
Dan Redding, aka “Hoodlum Dan,” 26, of Fort Worth, Texas, with aiding and abetting the possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.
Renyol Castrojon, 21, of Gainesville, Georgia, with conspiracy and possession counts relating to methamphetamine.
Larry Samples, aka “Duke,” 42, of Hull, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy, aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute it, and using and carrying firearms during the commission of a drug trafficking crime.
Darren Lloyd, aka “Panhead,” 48, of Winterville, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy, aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute it, and using and carrying firearms during the commission of a drug trafficking crime.
George Jordon, aka “Hammer,” 45, of Hull, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy, aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute it, and using and carrying firearms during the commission of a drug trafficking crime.

Dennis Riley, 35, of Hull, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy, aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute it, and using and carrying firearms during the commission of a drug trafficking crime.
James Brown, 41, of Danielsville, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy, aiding and abetting the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute it, and using and carrying firearms during the commission of a drug trafficking crime.
Tony Parrott, 45, of Ellijay, Georgia, with methamphetamine conspiracy and distribution, and conspiracy relating to cocaine.
Howard Haney, 41, of Alpharetta, Georgia, with methamphetamine conspiracy and distribution.
Davey Honeycutt, 41, of Gainesville, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy and possession charges and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Brandon Musser, 27, of Gainesville, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy and possession charges.
Thomas Coley, aka “Preacher,” 58, of Elberton, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy and possession charges.
Phillip Honeycutt, 46, of Gainesville, Georgia, with cocaine conspiracy and possession charges.
All the above defendants, with the exception of Howard Haney , are either members of, or otherwise affiliated with, the Outlaws, Southern Knights, the Black Pistons, or the Hoodlums Motorcycle Clubs. The Southern Knights, Black Pistons, and Hoodlums Motorcycle Clubs are affiliated with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.
George Norwood, 48, of Cumming, Georgia, and Raymond Sellers, 65, of Dawsonville, Georgia, were arraigned on charges that they conspired to unlawfully make a destructive device, specifically, a bomb, and to unlawfully transfer the bomb to an undercover agent. The indictment alleges that Sellers provided the undercover agent with a list of ingredients he would need to make the bomb. According to the indictment, on July 21, 2012, the undercover agent delivered to Sellers a quantity of sulphur, which was one of the ingredients that Sellers stated that he would need to construct the bomb. According to an affidavit filed in support of a search warrant for Sellers’ residence, Norwood claimed that Sellers is capable of building a bomb strong enough to destroy a house. Norwood is charged separately with possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
In their initial appearances before Magistrate Judge Cole on Thursday, the government asked for Norwood and Sellers to be held without bond, and Judge Cole scheduled a detention hearing on August 21 at 1 p.m. Norwood and Sellers are both connected with the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club.
James Robert (Bobby) McGlothlin, 48, of Dawsonville, Georgia, is charged with providing a firearm to another individual with knowledge that the other individual was a convicted felon. McGlothlin was released on a bond.
In their initial appearances before Magistrate Judge Cole on Thursday, the government asked for McDaniel, Alexander, Verrill, Leverett, Redding, Castrojon, Norwood, Sellers, Samples, Llyod, Jordon, Turner, Riley, Brown, Parrott, Haney, Davey Honeycutt, Phillip Honeycutt, Musser, and Coley to be held without bond, and Judge Cole scheduled detention hearings for these defendants on August 21 at 23.
Members of the public are reminded that the indictment only contains charges. The defendant is presumed innocent of the charges, and it will be the government’s burden to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
This case is being investigated by special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation with assistance from the North Georgia Major Offenders Task Force, which is composed of the law enforcement officials from the FBI, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Hall County Sheriff’s Office, Gainesville Police Department, Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, and Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. In addition, the White County Sheriff’s Office provided significant assistance in the investigation.
Assistant United States Attorneys William L. McKinnon, Jr. and Sally Molloy are prosecuting the case.
