    Police said Monday they have arrested an Australian Hell's Angels gang member who is wanted on drug charges in Western Australia.
    Police say they arrested Luke Anderson on Thursday after meeting with Australian Embassy officials on the problem of outlaw motorbike gangs. They say they have revoked his visa and will deport him.


    "We have informed the Australians and they have sent officials to escort him from Thailand to face charges in Australia,'' said Pol Maj Gen Archayon Kraithong, commander of the Immigration Bureau's Division 3.
    "We believe that he probably has more than one outstanding arrest warrant.''

    Thai police have arrested an Australian Hells Angels gang member who is wanted on drug charges in Western Australia.
    Police say they arrested Luke Anderson on Thursday after meeting with Australian embassy officials on the problem of outlaw motorbike gangs. They say they have revoked his visa and will deport him.
    "We have informed the Australians and they have sent officials to escort him from Thailand to face charges in Australia," said police Major General Archayon Kraithong, commander of the Immigration Bureau's Division 3.
    "We believe that he probably has more than one outstanding arrest warrant."
    Police told reporters at a news conference on Monday in Bangkok that the arrest warrant dated back to 2017 but gave no details.
    They said Anderson had been living with his Thai girlfriend in Pattaya, a coastal city notorious for crime and corruption.
    According to a Thai police press release, Anderson has been arrested more than 20 times in Australia on a number of charges, including possession of illegal weapons and drugs.
    An officer also confirmed that Anderson had been involved in a violent assault on two Thai brothers in Pattaya in September 2016, along with two other Australian motorbike gang members.
    "Several years ago, he committed a crime by assaulting a Thai national," said Archayon.
    He said Anderson is also suspected of "involvement in illegal trafficking of drugs and weapons, using Thailand as a meeting place, as a base to arrange activities in Australia. We consider him a dangerous person."
    The Australian head of the Hells Angels in Pattaya, Wayne Schneider, was bludgeoned to death in 2015 and buried in a shallow grave, in what was thought to be a drug-related dispute.
    Fellow Australian Antonio Bagnato was convicted of his murder and sentenced to death but the sentence was commuted.

    Hell's Angels = Mafia, in Australia.

    Since living mostly in Asia since 1992, my impression of the mafia is 'organised crime', in it's true sense.

    Most of the Yakuza I have met in Japan are actually nice people. The drug and sex trade is kept off the streets, and crime is truly 'organised', with an attempt to make the existence of crime not a burden on society. Incidents of violence are always among mafia members, and not against the public.

    Can't say I have the same impression regarding their Australian counterparts. Intimidating and inflicting violence on the general public is more the norm in Australia.

    The sleazy factor is much more apparent.

    Conclusion = There will always be crime - but there is no real need to be cvnts about it ..

    Rubbish.
    Don't believe everything you read in the media, nor crap "documentaries" on Discovery channel called Gangland biker bollox or summat similar.
    HA does not = Mafia in Oz.
    The bikie scene in Oz went to pot once the Middle East/Lebanese street gang crims infiltrated some clubs.
    Big mistake letting them in the first place.
    Ditto Germany with Turkish and Kurdish members.
    The complete waffle of an individual club member caught selling drugs and then trying to pin it on the complete club as "organised crime" has been dis proven dozens of times in various countries inc Oz and the USA (Rico Act).
    Its cost governments millions of $ in lost court cases, but hey it sells newspapers, right?
    And we can make another Gangland documentary with some former member hidden from view with a voice over "to protect his identity"......
    Utter bullshit.

    I shared a house with a Bandido gang member and we also had other members over on a daily bases.

    Never a problem and if they were involved in any Mafia style activities I never heard about or witnessed anything to that effect.

    I was also in the pub the day the Milperra Massacre went down and that is the day I found out about the conflict they had with the Comancheros.

    Biker members never speak about their business to anyone outside the group and members would never admit to being a member of a group to a non-member.

    I think I met this Luke bloke and he owned a bar on the Darkside for a while. I never saw him wearing colours nor letting others know his business.

    A really quite bloke who kept to himself.

    Essentially, these so-called motorcycle club members are no more than thuggish criminals combining in a loose and fluid association to derive profits from drug dealing, robbery and extortion employing violence, or the threat of violence, in order to achieve better results and to maintain a discipline whereby an established hierarchy can be maintained.

    Revenues are inevitably funnelled around SE Asia in order to be washed clean of their provenance before remittance back to Oz as proceeds from capitalised businesses.

    The circumstances evident in the murder of Wayne Schneider made it quite clear.

    I guess my opinion comes largely from the Gold Coast, where I grew up.

    I recently spent 3 years there after 25 years away.

    I know people there who run bars and clubs.

    They tell me that bikies have been very damaging to their businesses.

    Laws were brought in specifically aimed at banning bikies from gathering and frequenting their premises, which the people I know welcomed with open arms.

    From what they say, their businesses were financially effected due to intimidation to patrons caused by bikies.

    Was Wayne Shneider not killed by another Hells Angel over some drug deal gone wrong?

    In NZ it's the same with the Mongrel Mob, Black Power etc... drugs, weapons and the like

    As an American which is were all there biker gangs started I can say that they are undoubtedly criminal in nature and they have been from the very start. The Gypsy Jokers were a gang that controlled the part of the town I grew up in. They used to terrorize the entire area. My neighbor was an independent biker who did not claim a patch. Had the most amazing hardtail Harley and he would almost never ride it because he was afraid the Jokers would steal his bike. A bunch of thugs and criminals regardless of the country.

    You're right, i don't believe.
    I've been around outlaw back patch clubs my whole adult life, lived the life and the lifestyle till i hit 40-42, still know plenty as close friends back home.
    I will fight their corner every/any time people come on a forum with unsubstantiated media ingrained heresay.
    If you don't know any, or not been involved, you will never understand.

    You mean you were a feckless, ill-educated Antipodean lout who has now morphed into a mawkish blue collar oik seemingly incapable of understanding the degree of criminality permeating his society.

    Bring it on regarding an actual complete club charter being prosecuted (successfully) as an "organized crime gang".
    You dont really want page after page of failed Rico Act prosecutions in the USA, costing the US govt and tax payers millions of dollars do you?
    Individual members, sure.
    But membership of a back patch 1% mc does not hinge on what you do for a living.
    Unless you sell heroin or crack cocaine, or trade in kiddy fiddling images.
    Everything else, carpenter, car mechanic, engineer, doorman, coke and weed dealer, sure.

    Most of the bikers certainly in Pattaya are pretty harmless. A lot of middle aged guys on brand new Harleys, with goatee beards and bandanas. A retired bank manager from Belguim is not going to be a bad ass no mater how hard he tries to look the part.
    The Aussie Hells Angels who came across about 4 years ago really were the real deal. The Pattaya biking community was shit scared of them especially when they started running drugs and murdering each other.
