23 Vagos members arrested
The Daily Mail is reporting that "Twenty-three members of the Vagos motorcycle gang were arrested over the weekend in dramatic police raids across three states. The men were picked up in California, Nevada and Hawaii and are now in custody facing charges of murder, kidnapping, assault, racketeering and drug trafficking. Some are wanted for orchestrating the fatal shooting of a Hells Angel boss at a Las Vegas casino in 2011. In a 45-page indictment, prosecutors described how the 23 men, who all went by nicknames including 'Tata', 'Dragon Man' and 'Romeo', were responsible for 'drug addiction, death and mayhem' across five states."
The New York Daily News is reporting that the 23 members arrested "have been accused of crimes including murder, kidnapping, using and carrying a firearm to commit a violent crime, conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit racketeering." Yet is doesn't say any drugs were seized. Trafficking crystal meth is indeed concerning. Yet who was actually involved and how much crystal meth was seized? Were they arrested simply because they are Hells Angels rivals who appear to be selling drugs for the Agency?
