The Bandidos motorcycle club has rejected claims it was an intended recipients of more than $1 billion worth of ice that was destined for Australia after being seized in the US.

Federal Police said Mexican drug cartels were behind a $1.29 billion methamphetamine shipment and their customers were organised criminal gangs — one thought to be the Bandidos.




But in an extraordinary response to a report in the weekend’s Herald Sun, club spokesman Grey Norman said: “We categorically refute any suggestion of involvement whatsoever, in this or any other matter concerning ice”.

“We, like most Australians, shared a sigh of relief that these drugs never reached our shores.

“The Bandido Motorcycle Club vehemently distance ourselves from this insidious scourge on humanity, and in every way, shape and form.”

He said dealing ice contravened the “charter, spirit and character of the club” and anyone breaching it would be disciplined with “a minimal penalty of instant dismissal”.

“It is not, nor will it ever be tolerated within our organisation or with those who we associate.”

Authorities on Friday revealed a record $1.29 billion of ice, $9.5 million of cocaine and $2.6 million of heroin was found concealed in audio equipment in California on January 9 — and was bound for Melbourne.

The ice amounted to more than 17 million drug hits and was over 1.7 tonnes.

Mr Hill said outlaw motorcycle gangs were “100 per cent” involved in the Mexican crime ring.

  1. Well when your media you don’t need permission to post stuff. This article and statement was put out in the mainstream press. Thus becoming public domain. Insane Throttle is not beholden to any one club when it comes to Biker News. If it’s news, we either share the story from the source or we will do editorials on the subject.


  2. That is plain ass goddamn stupid to say that The BANDIDOS are the recipients of some billion dollar ice/drug shipment from the Cartel or anyone else, and I do mean plain ass goddamn stupid. Ask anybody in the street that has anything at all to do with ICE, it’s common knowledge. From Cartel to Cartel, there’s no one else involved. Haven’t you all noticed about every single bust, it never reaches it’s destination & there is no source. (Because of who it is)
    Not even The Mexican Mafia is involved with it. (Too many problems with the product, causes problems with business)
    You all are bikers, if actual Motorcycle Clubs were involved, you all would know more about what is going on, rather than what you think is going on. Fact rather fiction. We’re not talking about the use of the product, we’re talking about large scale trafficking. Check out my email from the Albuquerque Police Department to me when I was in Albuquerque NM. down in the War Zone. ‘Los BANDIDOS” (a network of Hispanics) is not The BANDIDOS. Another thing is; as in Florida, from Cartel, the word “robber” is used and the word “bandit” / The Latino word for bandit is bandido. The only Billion dollar anything is Speakeasy La Bamba Club assets, which were signed over to me because of a tax evasion issue which was later on disproven in a Court of Law. The BANDIDOS are legitimate business partners.
    The problem with the drugs is still the same. The negroes (negros) and the Police and The Middle East. The Karumba got busted right before I left from The War Zone. We got into it because of some nigger sexually soliciting a 13 year old white girl runaway that was staying with me until her mother could get there and pick her up so she could go back home. She was a cancer victim and a recovering heroin addict because of being taken off of morphine. She was living ‘Mi Vida Loca” before God calls her to go “home” to Heaven. I should have gutted that fucking nigger.There’s a news article, Boston, Massachusetts implicating specific State of New Mexico Politicians and the abberration going on with the drugs. THE END
