Andrew Sisson - Kiwi Hells Angels Nomads president - Guilty

Andrew Sisson and fellow Hells Angel Scott James Allan were found guilty in the Palmerston North District Court. Sisson’s wife Vikki was in court to hear the verdicts, as well as senior Hells Angels members who travelled to Manawatū for the occasion. Court bailiffs took advantage of the opportunity to get some visiting Hells Angels to cough up for unpaid fines, with the members paying in cash, or else.

Sisson displayed photos of French bulldogs; “five of our little babies” he said. “I would sell each of them for an average of $4,500”. He took payment in cash. That didn't wash, and the jury believed Sisson was the primary meth wholesaler. 'Ses' could be looking at a long stretch. He was convicted in 1999 for conspiracy to supply meth and money laundering.
Hells Angels boss Andrew Sisson says firewood and French bulldogs explain the money cops say he made selling meth. The biker spent a day in the witness box telling a jury how he made cash and his lack of knowledge about the meth ring he supplied. A forensic accountant told the trial there were big gaps between the money Sisson spent and how much went into his accounts. Sisson worked as a tattooist at the 'House of Pain'.
In 2010 Auckland NOW reported on unlawful debt collecting. Sisson was involved in the companies 'Rapid Recovery 2010 Ltd.' and 'Dirty Debtors Ltd.' He tried to steal a Toyota Hilux from an undercover cop in a sting operation. He marched around using a document headed "Warrant to Repossess" to rip folks off. The sting was part of a long-running operation against organized crime and led to criminal charges for three Hells Angels members and an associate. Sisson was also charged with possession of three rifles - a Ruger bolt action .243, a Ruger bolt action .308 and a .22 rifle.

FTX implodes - billions into the ether - update IV

Crypto firm BlockFi has filed for bankruptcy. The crypto company, which offers a trading exchange and interest-bearing custodial service for cryptocurrencies, was one of many firms to face serious liquidity issues after the implosion of FTX. The New Jersey-based company had already halted withdrawals and admitted that it had “significant exposure” to bankrupt FTX and Alameda Research.

Employees at FTX received loans from Alameda, including $543m to head of engineering Nishad Singh and $55m to head of FTX digital markets Ryan Salame.
The company tasked with locking down assets of FTX said they've secured US$740m. The 'digital assets' are locked in what is known as 'cold storage'. The trouble is upwards of $10b has evaporated. The Turkish government announced it seized the assets in its country belonging to FTX, and Sam Bankman-Fried and others will be charged with crimes including money laundering, market manipulation and fraud. FTX.TR had over 110k users and processed $600m per month. Alameda Research, the trading arm of Sam Bankman-Fried, loaned him and other companies under his control $3.3b. $2.3b went to also bankrupt Paper Bird Inc., which he owns a majority stake in. Among other things, Bankman-Fried acculmulated $300m in Bahamas real estate.
FTX was a cryptocurrency exchange, FTX.US, its U.S. affiliate. In June 2021, FTX raised $1b at an $18b valuation from investors like Paradigm, SoftBank and Sequoia Capital. Three months later, FTX brought in $421m, pushing its valuation to $25b, this time from Singapore-government owned investment firm Temasek, Tiger Global Management and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. The valuation was $32b. That number is now zero.
FTT tokens Here
Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan invested a total of $95m between FTX and FTX U.S. in late 2021 and early 2022. US authorities are investigating Bankman-Fried as well as FTX. The bloom is surely off the crypto rose now. Bitcoin slumped as much as 8% to $16.6k, exactly one year from it's $69k top.

Sukhvir Singh Deo - Flashback

A Range Rover sped along Lakeshore Road in Oakville in 2013. Checks told cops the driver was Sukhvir Deo and alarm bells went off. CPIC confirmed the information and was accompanied with a request to deliver a “duty to warn”, this is a legal requirement for cops to warn an individual if there was a credible threat to their life. Halton police cops contacted B.C. to get more information about Deo — who had quietly relocated to a mansion in Oakville. Deo called himself a 'trucking executive' but was a well known transnational drug dealer. He was the author of his own fate after foolishly gaining attention at a Raptors game.
There have been no arrests in the June 7, 2016 murder of gangster Sukhvir Singh Deo. Two men wearing construction vests opened fire on Deo as he sat in his Range Rover. He died at the scene.

Deo was whacked weeks after a high profile appearance at a Raptors game.
Sukh Deo had been living in Ontario since 2013 in a palatial home in Oakville.

Oz 'bin chickens' get respect for downing toxic cane toads

Few animals are reviled in Oz more than the white ibis. The 'bin chicken' has an iron stomach and scavenges food from anywhere. The native bird is earning respect after it began eating an animal Australians hate even more; the invasive cane toad, a toxic pest.
Introduced in the 1930s, cane toads had no natural predators and their numbers started an exponential rise. The toad's skin contains venom which it releases when threatened, causing most animals that come into contact with it to die. Videos of ibis "playing" with the amphibians emerged. The clever ibis has learned to stress the toad, and then wash off the resulting toxin before consuming it whole. They won't soon run out of chow. There are billions of cane toads and they are prolific ... for every female cane toad it's 70,000 new cane toads each year.

HA leader Salvatore Cazzetta forced into retirement

Quebec media is reporting Salvatore Cazzetta, 67, who was considered influential for more than 30 years, will retire from the HAMC, a move akin to expulsion. Among the most influential actors in organized crime in Quebec for decades, it is said Cazzetta lost support of bikers. Cazzetta once had strong ties to the recently released Raynald Desjardins, a force within the Calabrian Mafia in Montreal. Recently whacked dealer Maxime Lenoir also had a close connection to Cazzetta. Lenoir was the head of a methamphetamine manufacturing lab. Today there was news of a massive HAMC meth lab bust in Quebec.

5 HA busted for California killing - update II

Logan Winterton, 37, is charged with murder.
Cops say the bikers were involved in 3 incidents at the Shoreline Amphitheatre over the course of the evening. In addition to the murder, the group beat an off duty cop leaving serious injuries. The bikers then dissuaded a witness from talking to police. Hells Angels were gathered near the Stage Right Cafe when a man walked through their group. Security footage showed Logan Winterton looking at the victim and waving his hands in his direction. The man “walked directly towards” a woman who was the girlfriend of HA Dominic Guardado. The man touched the woman’s shoulder. Juan Gonzalez, 41, of Bakersfield was punched in the back of the head by Logan Winterton and fell face-first on the concrete. Another biker poured beer over the victim’s head and said, "This is what you get motherfucker, for talking shit."

Dominic Guardado, Julio Moran, David Wiesenhaven and Raymond Cunanan
Gonzalez was taken to hospital with a traumatic brain injury where he was taken off life support and died. Five bikers were arrested in connection to a murder and a serious assault on an off-duty cop in Mountain View, California. On the night of June 18, cops were called to the Chris Stapleton concert due to a report of an unresponsive man near the stage. The victim, Juan Gonzalez, died from his injuries about a week later. Cops learned over the next several days that the involved parties knew one another and were associated with the HAMC. Search warrants were served on the homes of each and at the Hells Angels clubhouse in San Francisco.

Busted real good are tuff guys Logan Winterton, 37, Dominic Guardado, 33, Julio Moran, 43, David Wiesenhaven, 38, and Raymond Cunanan, 42.

Baytowne Hyundai screws Canadians real good

She took her SUV to the dealership in August 2021.
Daryan Coryat was floored when Baytowne Hyundai handed her a $7k repair bill for her 2013 Hyundai Tucson after the vehicle sat for eight months waiting on an engine recall part. The dealership told her the vehicle was ready in April 2022, but the engine light went on the moment she drove it off the lot.
The critical engine part took 8 months to arrive.
She took it back to the dealership, which then charged her for an inspection and quoted her $7,000 in new repairs. When $900 in sales tax was added, the bill came to $7,918.98. The list of things needing repair included the intake manifold, the rear 02 sensor, flex pipe, upstream 02 sensor, muffler, both rear brake calipers, rear brake pads, rear brake rotors, both front brake calipers, front brake pads and front brake rotors. Automotive experts say improper storage by the dealer was the direct cause of problems they are now charging to repair.

Jim Williams, Principal
The bill for repairs is "padded beyond belief. I have rarely seen a case of repair abuse like this one." He says avoid Hyundai and Kia products.

Sandra Celli, Controller.
