Updating The Steve Veltus Story

June 8, 2014

All Posts, News

Among the most disturbing aspects of Steve Veltus’ career as a professional snitch is the extent to which authorities have repeatedly protected him from the consequences of his criminal conduct.

This page reported Friday that Veltus, who was reborn in the United States Marshals’ Witness Protection Program as Steven Maschari, had been arrested on March 19, 2013 for four felonies which were: Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, which carries a penalty of up to ten years in prison; Maintaining a  Drug Trafficking Place, punishable by up to 42 months in prison; Manufacture/Delivery of more than 200 grams of Tetrahydrocannabinol, punishable by up to six years in prison; and Possession with Intent to Distribute THC which is punishable by up to 42 months in prison. The search warrant that led to Veltus/Maschari’s arrest was issued by Outagamie County Judge Greg Gill Jr. Veltus/Maschari was arrested in Outagamie County. He was scheduled to stand trial on the felony charges on September 24, 2013 but his trial was continued after a pretrial conference on September 16.

Charges Reduced

Veltus was represented by a Green Bay attorney named Jeffrey Jazgar from April 2. 2013 until September 27, 2013 and he spent that entire period free on bail. After Jazgar withdrew from the case 11 days after Veltus/Maschari’s pretrial conference he was replaced by a general practice, Appleton lawyer named Jeffrey Kippa. The amazing Kippa then successfully pled Veltus/Maschari’s four felonies, including the weapons possession charge which is often a federal felony, down to two misdemeanors.

Veltus/Maschari pled “no contest” to misdemeanor “Carrying A Concealed Weapon” and misdemeanor “Possession of THC” on November 13, 2013. The plea was accepted by Judge Raymond Huber who is a judge in Waupaca County, Wisconsin. Waupaca County adjoins Outagamie County. Public records of the case are sketchy.

Veltus/Maschari remained free on bail until reporting to either the Outagamie County Jail or the Waupaca County Jail to serve a 60 day sentence on December 16, 2013. There is no record of Steven Maschari in the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Offender Search Database.

Civil Cases

There have been two civil cases filed against both Steven R. Maschari and Ana Marie I. Maschari by creditors Don J. Schaefer and Shirley M. Schaefer. In the first case, filed as Outagamie County Case Number 2013SC001490, the Schaefers won a small claims judgment against the Mascharis in the amount of $10,099.50 on May 28, 2013.

The second case, Outagamie County Case Number 2013CV000849, is a civil action filed on July 23, 2013, presumably after the Schaefers learned that it is impossible to collect a judgment against con men who are protected by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobocco, Firearms and Explosives. The status of that case is currently listed as closed.

The ATF has protected Veltus at the expense of his innocent victims before.

For example, in 2008 after the conclusion of Operation Black Rain Veltus agreed to buy a restaurant in Sula, Montana. Veltus and his wife were living in the restaurant at the time. Before disappearing into the Witness Protection Program Veltus tried to burn the restaurant. When firefighters and police arrived they found several pounds of marijuana and the carcass of an illegally taken elk. According to the restaurant owner, Veltus also stole kitchen equipment and at least $2,700 in cash. The owner estimated her total loss to be $18,000.

The restaurant owner tried to sue Veltus and quickly ran into the ATF. The owner eventually talked to John Ciccone, who was the case agent on Operation Black Rain, the infiltration of the Mongols Motorcycle Club in which Veltus participated. The owner’s son told Ciccone that he wanted to sue either Veltus or the ATF for the damages Veltus had done. According to the owner Ciccone replied, “Well that’s not gonna happen.”

  2. RtC Says:

    And like Rebel posted to Steve on the other Veltus piece, about him laughing, this POS has NO CONSCIENCE, just like all fuckin’ snitches & rats. “STITCHES NO, DITCHES YES!”
    Keep on keepin’ on, Rebel! At least this segment of “humanity” is awake,
    if only we could wake up the complacent douche-bags!
    RESPECTS to the REAL

    As I’ve said in the past, pictures of the above and others should be posted in every club house of every club and biker friendly bar across the Country.

    The day the MCs stop fighting each other and start looking out for each other, is the day meaningful networks can begin to be established. This will go a long way in keeping the above, and the likes of Carr, Kozlowski, Harden, Ciccone, etc. sidelined and therefore neutralized. It is beyond the obvious that the aforementioned use an MC’s autonomy to their advantage.

    If the MCs are incapable of adapting and learning from the past, they are then destined to be buried by the future.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  4. Matt Says:

    Is there even such a charge as “possession of THC”? To my knowledge, the purest form of THC would be hash oil.

  5. Stevo Says:

    Veltus, no doubt, has a videotape and/or a sworn deposition in a safety deposit box somewhere that seriously incriminates one or more of Ciccones gang. And instructions with a lawyer that if anything happens to him it be made public. Talk about two birds with one stone if anything should happen to the shithouse.


  6. skinny denny Says:

    I’m thinking it was synthetic THC. Back in the 1970’s PCP was sometimes erroneously referred to as THC. I think Marinol is actually a form of synthetic THC.

  7. Sieg Says:

    Wisconsin, and I believe many other States, uses “THC” in their anti-weed laws instead of saying “marijuana”, just to cover their ass. That way, anything containing detectable amounts of THC, be it candy, brownies, whatever, can get ya popped.


  8. skinny denny Says:

    I’m headed to Denver next month where I can enjoy some rational cannabis laws and high quality local product. Fuck the Feds, fuck Carr, and fuck Kaos(or whatever his Iron Odor handle is these days)!

  9. Rebel Says:

    Dear Stevo,

    I have been told that Veltus is actively seeking a major book deal.


  10. Rebel Says:

    Dear Matt,

    Just a guess, an informed guess, Veltus got some LEDs and was growing some trees.


  11. Oldskewl Says:

    The kids brought home some stuff called “budder” and it’s similar to hash oil but with the consistency and look of butter.
    Much different high than smoking a joint, to the point where I didn’t like it.. way too strong for me.

    “If the MCs are incapable of adapting and learning from the past, they are then destined to be buried by the future”

    Extinction just like prehistoric dinosaurs.

    SAVE THE PATCH people before we all get got.

    I hope this rat and his whole family die in a fiery slow death piece of shit mother fucker

  14. blacksmith Says:

    It may be that new fangled condensed THC called “wax”
    Not that I know anything about it, i heard its a supposed felony charge in Cali.

  15. Cap'n Bill Says:

    I’ve never quite understood the mindset of someone wanting to be a cop (or any leo) much less a professional rat. There is always somebody somewhere that will know you as the world is growing increasingly smaller.

  16. Metal Dave Says:

    This motherfucker’s gonna get rich rich rich off of some book deal and laugh all the way to the bank. LIVING GARBAGE

  17. JD Says:

    its sad that he spent all those years screwing around and taking short cuts instead of going out and earning a living like the rest of us. after he was busted the second time, he should have just done his time like a real man instead of becoming a snitch. what a waste
