The Outlaws,members of a motorcycle gang are locked up, charged with dealing millions of dollars worth of cocaine in the Wyoming Valley.The attorney general calls them members of a dangerous gang, a gang with some surprising members.
About 20 members of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club, the Wilkes-Barre chapter,are led by Joseph Janick. Investigators said there are outlaw clubs all over the country."Think of this as an illegal fraternity. If you were in a fraternity, you know there was an original chapter. They have the same type of structure," explained Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett.The alleged gang members are charged with dealing millions of dollarw worth of cocaine in the Wyoming Valley.Police said the gang's headquarters was a house in Ashley but they are accused of dealing drugs all over.
One of an accused gang members is John Gonda, a corrections officer at the Luzerne County jail, who is now charged with dealing cocaine in Wilkes-Barre.Investigators would not say if he dealt to inmates at the jail or to other jail employees.
"A corrections officer in my mind is part of the law enforcement community. When you have somebody in law enforcement, particuarly the Outlaws in this, it's probably the worse thing that could happen," Corbett added.Investigators seized weapons, drugs, gang paraphanalia and even motorcycles.They said they're glad the arrests are made, but they know this won't be the last drug gang they will come across in Luzerne County."It's the demand that has to be looked at. If the demand were down, then they would not sell their drugs here. I don't know if you would really call it shocking. It's something that you see and will probably continue to see," said Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll.Investigators used wiretaps to build their case against the Outlaw club members.
