February 13, 2020 — New Jersey Pagan’s Motorcycle Club boss Tim (Pita) Fowler was recently released from prison after a decade behind bars for plotting to kill rival Hells Angels club leaders. The 51-year old Fowler is a former U.S. Marine and served as president of the Pagan’s Trenton chapter in the 2000s.
It’s unclear what role — if any —Fowler will play in an era where the Pagan’s are actively looking to acquire more territory in his home state.
The Pagan’s national president Keith (Conan the Barbarian) Richter issued the “Blue Wave” initiative two years ago, an expansion edict, per law enforcement memos and press briefings, specifically targeting parts of Northern New Jersey — perceived as Hells Angels turf —, and other parts of the Northeastern U.S. Under Richter’s orders, Pagan’s in the region wear an “East Coast” rocker rather than one that identifies any particular city or state as is customary in most other clubs’ protocol. There have been seven new Pagan’s chapters opened in recent years.
Pita Fowler was indicted in September 2010 in Operation On The Road Again along with one-time New York Pagan’s chapter bosses Jason (Roadblock) Blair and John (J.R.) Ebeling, charged with conspiracy in a plot to firebomb Hells Angels social functions and personal residences. Fowler pleaded guilty in the spring of 2012. Blair and Ebeling used to run “Conan” Richter’s Long Island chapter prior to their incarcerations.
In 2006, Fowler was arrested by authorities in Monmouth County for the kidnapping of a rival biker from a bar in an effort to get him to provide information on the address of a fellow Bandanas MC member who the Pagan’s were in a beef with. Blair, 46, has another four years on his prison sentence. Ebeling, 47, only did five years and got out in early 2015.
