Baltimore County Police concluded a month-long investigation that led to the arrest of eight members of the Infamous Ryders Motorcycle Club, a bikers gang operating in the Baltimore metropolitan area, for violent crimes and other felony charges, a press release announced on Nov. 12.
Police also seized twelve firearms related to the case, including three “ghost guns,” which, according to charging papers, are firearms without serial numbers and what is known as a lower receiver.
The following defendants were arrested and charged: Shaun A. Grazuties, 42, of Parkville; Dylan M. Conley, 23, of Beltsville; Lawrence E. Sabin, 51, of Havre de Grace; Mitchell B. Frost, 33, of Nottingham; Joseph L. McDonnell, 36, of Overlea; Tyler E. Dejonge, 32, of Middle River; Joseph R. Liggett, 31, of Mariotsville; and Michail D. Nikolettos, 29, of Forest Hill.
Most of the charges, police allege, stem from an incident that occurred on Sept. 9, 2021, in which a member of the club was beaten by the aforementioned eight members, and as a result, sustained a severe head injury, a fractured jaw, and multiple severe contusions down the body.
During a club meeting on Bulls Saw Mill Road in Freeland, the eight members attacked the man, hitting him with an axe handle, and kicking and punching him repeatedly, according to a police statement. Club president Grazuties, who goes by the club name “Wrench,” removed the man’s club vest, put a gun in the man’s mouth and told him he should kill him.
Frost, Conley and Sabin pointed guns at him as well, and Grazuties told the man that if he reported the incident, that he would make the man’s grandson “disappear.” Grazuties also threatened to shoot up the man’s house with an AK-47 and turn it into “Swiss cheese,” and said that he would keep the man’s $3,800 lawn mower that he had borrowed two days prior as an “out-fee.”
After the man was struck in the face again by Conley, he was allowed to crawl away. He then went to a nearby house and told the owner to call his wife, who transported him to the hospital.
Law enforcement was contacted, and the man confirmed the identities of the members participating in the assault and armed robbery of his lawn mower and the $20,000 Harley Davidson motorcycle that he parked outside the meeting space.
