Feds Peel Back Chrome On Motorcycle Gangs : NPR

17:40 | ,

Feds Peel Back Chrome On Motorcycle Gangs : NPR: "federal agents spanned out over seven states to arrest more than two dozen members of the Outlaws motorcycle club and charged them with weapons and racketeering offenses.
The case lifted a curtain on the violent lifestyle of one of the nation's largest outlaw motorcycle gangs.
Club members gathered for a memorial service for Thomas Mayne, a club leader who was killed during a shootout with federal agents on June 15. ATF agents were trying to arrest Mayne in his home in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.The gangs don't usually get much attention, aside from a cable television show called the Sons of Anarchy.
But far away from TV screens, investigators are working to infiltrate the closed societies of biker gangs and bring criminal cases against their leaders.
'The investigation shows this group was a calculated criminal enterprise that was involved in trying to take over territory, narcotics routes, gambling establishments, and to utilize the brand of the Outlaws to facilitate criminal acts of not only themselves but other clubs,' said Rich Marianos, who supervised the Outlaws case for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."
