Feds Round Up Outlaw Bikers; One Suspect Killed In Maine


Twenty-seven members of the Outlaws biker gang were rounded in eight states Tuesday, charged with attempted murder, kidnapping and witness intimidation. The Outlaws' reputed New England treasurer, Thomas “Tomcat” Mayne, 58, of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, was killed in a gunfight with an ATF SWAT team, reports the Boston Herald.

Federal search warrants were executed early Tuesday based on an indictment in Virginia. Federal authorities called the Outlaws “a highly organized criminal enterprise with a defined, multilevel chain of command.” It is alleged the Outlaws have participated in violent racketeering activities with the intent to leave rival gangs – in particular, the Hell's Angels – in their dust.
