Alleged Club Members Involved in Bar Fight

Dundalk, Maryland, USA (September 2, 2021) - A fight between rival motorcycle clubs at an Essex bar led to the arrest of seven men, two of whom are from Dundalk, according to court records.

The men, who are allegedly members of the Pagan’s motorcycle club, were pulled over on their motorcycles on August 23, after police were dispatched to a report of a fight involving a gun at Sylvester’s Saloon in Essex, according to charging papers filed against the seven men who were arrested.

The charging papers allege nine members of the Pagan's motorcycle club beat Kenneth Burr, who was seen in surveillance footage sitting with three Pagan's motorcycle club members before one of them, later identified as Daniel Chesnavage, came around the table and struck Burr on the head.

Burr’s wife drew a pistol, according to charging papers, but she was surrounded by five alleged Pagan's motorcycle club members, one who drew a gun and another two of whom, identified as William Dickens and Christopher Beatty, allegedly pinned her down and took her pistol.

The Pagan's motorcycle club members allegedly ripped a Knights motorcycle club jacket off Kenneth Burr, as well as Roy Rockafellow and John Eacho, who each initially told police they did not know what happened, and that nothing was taken from them, charging papers say.

Police Storm Hells Angels Clubhouse in Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia (September 1, 2021) - A Hells Angels MC clubhouse in Melbourne's north has been raided again as the search continues for an Adelaide man, who police suspect has been murdered.

Police stormed the Hells Angels MC clubhouse in Thomastown but did not find a body. The raid follows police carrying out searches of the Jacksons Creek area in Diggers Rest this month to try to find the Adelaide man's remains.

According to Victoria Police, the search of the Lipton Drive club house followed new information they were given in their investigation into Mr Giakoumis' disappearance. The clubhouse is the last place where the 29-year-old, who police believe was not a patched member of the Hells Angels MC, was known to have been seen, back in the early hours of Wednesday, 10 June 2020.

Mr Giakoumis had arrived in Melbourne from Adelaide on 5 June, 2020 with two people who police believe are members of the motorcycle club. He had told his family that he was planning to do concreting work in Melbourne. Giakoumis regularly spoke with his family after he arrived in Melbourne, but he stopped contacting them on Wednesday, 10 June 2020, when he didn't board his flight home to Adelaide. 

 A task force has been established to investigate Kerry’s disappearance and suspected murder. Police believe it is likely a dispute occurred on 10 June 2020, which may be connected to members or associates of the Hells Angels MC.
