Eleven members of Vagos, a rival motorcycle gang of the Hells Angels, were arrested today by an Arizona Department of Public Safety gang task force in connection with several violent crimes around Bullhead City.

Six of the 11 arrested during "Operation Catch 22" are repeat customers to the DPS task force, as they were arrested during "Operation Sand Castle" in December, 2010, under very similar circumstances.

According to a DPS spokesperson, the arrests are the result of an eight-month investigation into a "resurgence of violent crimes" related to Vagos, including some violent incidents involving patrons of local bars.

The most recent involved some alleged Vagos gangsters beating up a guy inside Lazy Harry's Lounge, dragging him out of the bar, and beating him up some more.

Along with another part of the investigation involving the Lake Havasu chapter of the Vagos, the 11 arrested racked up assorted charges including assaults, witness intimidation, drug sales, motorcycle theft, and possessing stolen property.

Ryan Welsch, 26 of Lake Havasu; Shawn Bailey, 36, of Bullhead City; and Gabriel Nader, 25, of Bullhead City, were each charged with aggravated assault and participating in a criminal street gang.

Bernard Prano, 55, of Lake Havasu; Peter Velliodis, 39, of Laughlin, Nevada; Paul Villegas, 41, of Lake Havasu; Robert Mann, 46, of Bullhead City; Robert Kellar, 36, of Bullhead City; and Daniel McDonald, 53, of Fort Mohave, were each hit with charges of transportation theft, possessing a vehicle with a defaced vehicle identification number, and participating in a criminal street gang.

Kenneth Gallego, 35, of Fort Mohave is charged with attempted intimidation of a witness, and Dale Smith, 52, of Mohave Valley, got hit with a charge of mishandling explosives.

The Vagos members arrested for the second time in a DPS operation were Smith, Bailey, Nader, Kellar, Prano, and McDonald.

All of the alleged gangsters earned trips to the Mohave County Jail.

Vagos, for those keeping score, were involved in a shootout with the Hells Angels in which more than 50 shots were fired, but the death scoreboard showed zero.

 The clubs have been infiltrated for years and years. The DOJ/ ATF / FGTF/ FBI  etc are experts at placing Moles in motorcycle clubs.  Unlimited funding and hardware dictate that the government will succeed everytime.  You NEVER truly know who your sitting next to at the bar, Infomant, Paid snitch, a Fed, State UC, County UC, City UC.  Scary way to live.

Hells angels have been rating on all the real motorcycles for years , now the hells angels want to take Bike clubs to court and prove they are really criminal; gangs

  Thats what the Hells Angels get for hanging around undercover pigs like that and committing crimes around them and letting them into the gang with out making them trip on some good LSD a few times.  LSD trips scares pigs away. maybe the HA members should try getting a straight job and quitting the paranoid 1%er biker crank addicted lifestyle. that way you have a better more stress free life without all the worries of prison and or a quick death.  I been there and done all that life years ago and it leads to nowhere but prison or a death into a  rough shallow grave. the good old days of the Hells Angels mc are gone with the past and the winds of time and to never return and you cant recreate them. the HA went downhill in the mid 1990s now its all a poser dream full of imataiters and wannbee Terry The Tramps born 40+ years to late to be the real thing.

Amen to that. The honorable men in the 81 and the Vagos are long gone, either kicked out or have left on their own because they were tired of the lies and the mistrust. Now they are filled with part timers and re-treads who will sell their brothers down the road in a New York minute.

I certainly understand your frustration and anger.  The world is changing and not for the better either.  You can't trust anyone anymore.  The fact remains that Biker groups are by far the EASIEST to infiltrate because the majority of activity revolves around drinking, Sex or drugs.  FBI psychologists have had the "Biker"  paradigm pegged for decades. 

Warning

  There are 2 ATF agents posing as HA prospects for the Cave Creek Hells Angels Charter at this time. sonny barger ,cowboy,bobby, howie, johnny a and the rest of the guys in the club are not as sharp at smelling  ATF as they thought they were. they are falling for the same trick again. the ATF does not give in or give up so wise up boys. there are 2 new prospects that are cops.  you guys are starting to slip in your old age.

Tactical Arizonan

Thats what I mean.  The "Biker groups" have absolutely no idea how mapped out and easy it is to predict their actions and behavior.  A possible heavy prison sentence makes alot of individuals "Re-Evaluate" their priorities and loalties.   The OP in the article was eight months, Sorry!  It is constant and perpetual.  The TAC Groups in AZ, CA, NV are well trained and always waiting for the "Green light".  Wouldnt it be great if everybody played nice?

The ultimate act of betraying your jailed friends
 
If I was in prison for beating  or killing USA hells angels that attacked me because I was in a club that was a rival of the USA hells angels.
 
The worst thing my club could do to me while I was sitting in prison the rest of my life just because of my membership would be to have my club forgive the hells angels and then pal around with hells angels .
 
The club has no right to trade my loyalty just to make their life easier.
 
seems the ATF is using many names here to get the ATF propoganda out

If your in a rival club of the USa hells angels  and some one in your club openly  gets along with a  USA hells angels That would be the person most likly to turn on his own club and then join the hells angels

Never trust a USA hells angels they only talk peace when they know they cannot win  chances are they willl stab you in the Back. first chance you get

Any one in the real Biker world Knows The saying God forgive  Blank don't.

No real 1% biker club will ever forgive the hells angels for all the members that are in their club in prison and some for life because of thwe coward rats of the USa hells angels.

Forgiving the  USA  Hells angels is the same as pissing all over your club members sitting in prison because a USa hells angels put them there.

In the real Biker world world  wide Police are unjustly acsussing Bikers to be criminal organizations and not 1 % clubs.

In the USA USA Hells angels are in court trying to prove real Motorcyle clubs are criminal street Gangs.

In our world No one trusts USA hells angels or their support gangs.

In the real Biker world not these fake names used in these comments.

The real bikers Know USA hells angels have been rating on them and putting them down in the news for decades

In the USA the hells angels rat on all the real 1% biker clubs and the hells angels have been leaving negative comment every time a real club gets in trouble to make sure the citizens don't forget

Then the Hells angels push them self

 I have met both Bandido AL Cole and Boodan of the Warlocks in my travels. trust me they are real names and real 1%ers  and very good stand up guys. Boodan has been on 2 tv shows about the Warlocks. AL COLE is a well known Bandit in Houston Texas.

If they were real 1%ers they sure the hell wouldn't be on no TV show. WTF has the outlaw biker world come to?? Gang-banging on keyboards?? My 13 yo daughter argues with her friends here also. What does that say about it all?? It is a sad time in history as the TV show Sons of Anarchy is actually be played out on here and the streets. Sad, sad time. Embarrassing to say the least.

Looking at the histroy of the USa hnells angels it really seems like the Hells angels have far to many women and children as victims of their gang.

I think the USa hells angels women and child killing history make them the wrong role models for some Rich hollywood men to be pushing on children sitting at home watching Telivision.

Kurt Sutter
Kurt Sutter

American women and children are also Rivals of the USA hells angels .When you look at the history of the USA hells angels most of the victims of the USA hells angels are women and children.
The USA hells angels have also been at war with Mike Yevtuck the God of the USA hells angels for decades now .
 No One likes USA hells angels because USA hells angels are famous for beating molesting and murdering women and children all across the USA for many Decades
 USA hells angels could possibly be a huge part of the child porn problem in the USA.The motorcycle thingy could be just an excuse for freaks involved with child porn to have a legal looking reason to meet other freaksI think if the USa Hells angels called themself the USA hells angels child porn collectors club they would not be able to meet with their customers /support men in public because those freaks would be to shy to show the world what they want.
Just a couple years Ago the USA hells angels leader from Nevada was busted Crossing Many many states Lines with a His Huge Huge Huge Hells angels child porn collection.
The hells angels leader was on his way to a USA hells angels convention with like a record amount of child porn when the police finally busted him.
Was the USA hells angels convention the Distribution Point for USA hells angels to sell their child porn to USa Hells angels chapters and other freak child porn motorcyclists across the USA?.
Are most USA hells angels conventions just a place where freaks can peddle their child porn freak ware to other freaks ?
I think so because USA hells angels sure as hell are not bikers and I don't think USA hells angels leaders just drive around the USA with that much child porn just so they can watch it with their pals.
So my guess is the freaks of the USA hells angels are really A CHILD porn club of course they are not a child porn gang because they are white
 I think under the circumstance the USA hells angels leader getting busted on his way to the USA hells angels convention with a record amount of child porn should be enough to allow police to stop and search USA hells angels and the men they date every time they leave the house and their hells angels homes and tree forts should be searched every day for missing kidsThese are just my opinions basted on the FACT that the USa hells angels leader was busted with so much a Huge amount of child porn on his way to meet the rest of the club at a club convention.You really have to wonder why the police did not close this USA Hells angel club down forever.

  Hells Angels leader 72 yr old sonny barger invented the famous diamond shaped 1%er patch in 1956 and tattooed it on his upper right arm in 1956. so how come the Bandits wear a patch invented by a Hells Angels member in 1956? who are the real posers and copy cats?

My wife owns a bar that sometimes has HA and other MC clubs patronize it. All of them have been good to deal with. You show them respect and they'll show it right back. If you're stupid enough to start something with them, they'll finish it, for sure.

Boy Gibby like I haven't heard that story over and over for the last 40+ years about the HAs. how rehearsed can you get?  that story is old and lame and it is no where near the truth. they were saying that about the Angels back in 1965 in California. cant you come up with some new material?

  If they are such nice guys then why are people afraid of them? they didnt get that  bad violent reputation for being born again Christians. they like being feared. its better to be feared  than it is to be loved. fear works so you gotta whoop some ass every once and a while to keep up your bad ass rep. just like in highschool. pussys get picked on so they cant be pussys. so they chose violence. are you retarted gibby? if they raped or killed your wife or beat you up you would hate them forever. they just have got you yet. you keep hanging around them long enough and you will see what I mean. live and learn boy!

 I have seen the HAs from the cave creek charter beat up guys and use their whips and ballpeen  hammers on them for doing nothing at the steel horse saloon at 19th ave and bell road a few times. I saw a guy get beat for bumping into an HA guy there at the pool table when he was trying to make a pool shot. the guy got beat up for that and he said im sorry to the HA guy and he still got beat up by them.  they like to use the alley next to the bar where they park their bikes for regular bloody hells angels ass whooping. thats 1 guy you and 7 to 10 of them on you. they dont beat or fight one on one they beat and fight 7 to 10 on one poor guy. real tough guys huh? all on one and one on all is their motto. they are a bunch of greasy insecure rednecks bullys with an infereority complex who ride on 2 wheeled tin cans.

@Road Scholar I was there when those guys randomly picked out people at the bar to beat up.  It was a low despicable thing to do.  Fortunately I was really good friends with Dawn the Bartender there and they left me alone. I still however lost ALL respect for them for that show of so called "Power".

 All HAs have meth rage. that comes from daily over use of home made Angel crank they cook themselves. they live on that shit. thats why they are so mean. they are no different than the average white trash meth tweeker on the streets. the only difference is the angels ride motorcycles.

Yea there a bunch of swell guys like the time when they beat stabbed and then slit the throat of Cynthia Gracia in mesa. then threw her body in the trunk of a car and dumped it in the desert then tried to cut her head off with a sharp knife. yea they are great guys to know love  buy support shirts from and ride and hang out with. you might as well hang out with Satan 666 worshipers because they do serve Satan 666. they wear the mark of the beast 666 Satan on their vest to prove it. although they will never admit to that. Angels dont lie to each other but the DO LIE to the naive ignorant gullible groupie 81 supporter public and non club members. criminals always lie and never tell the truth to outsiders.
