Invaders Indicted

United States Attorney Catherine L. Hanaway has loudly announced that a St. Louis Grand Jury has indicted 15 members of the Invaders Motorcycle Club. The men are accused of conspiring to distribute 2,200 pounds of marijuana, the devil’s drug, between 1994 and 2009.

The indicted men have been publically identified as: Edward John Borough, 39; Robert Allen Turner, 60; Victor Dwayne Ashworth, 48; William Arthur Bellmore, 53; Gerald Wayne Dragich, 55; Donald Steven Emory, 49; Stephen Patrick Morris, 46; Michael Shawn Ashworth, 44; Daniel Charles Inman, 54; Timothy Jay Bartruff, 51; Timothy James Rappleano, 43Raymond Edward Bodway, 36; Gary Wayne Null, 35; Ronald A. Young, 51; and Shane L. Rohlfing, 31.

All 15 men have been reported to be members of the Midwest Chapter of the Invaders. The Invaders MC has eight chapters in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Colorado.

Screaming Headline

Federal grand juries comprise between 16 and 23 jurors. At least 16 jurors must be present at any session to form a quorum and at least 12 of them must vote for an indictment. Generally, federal grand juries always return indictments.

Solomon Wachtler, Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals from 1985 to 1993 and subsequently an incarcerated felon himself, once remarked that any federal prosecutor can get any federal grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich.”

An indictment is an accusation that a crime has occurred. In the United States of America, people who are accused of crimes are presumed to be innocent until they are proven guilty. Nevertheless, the St Louis Post-Dispatch, once the best newspaper in the Midwest, ran a headline in Sunday morning’s edition that screamed, “15 In Motorcycle Gang Ran Pot Ring.”

Your Government At Work

The decade and a half long investigation of the Invaders was carried out by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA.) And, the length of time it has taken for this investigation to reach a conclusion may offer a hint as to why the United States government has not yet captured Osama Bin Laden or won the war in Iraq.

This is the second time in the last six months that the DEA has asked a grand jury to indict members of the Invaders. Last June, a federal grand jury indicted 34 members and associates of the Northern Indiana Chapter of the club for conspiracy to distribute 100 kilograms of marijuana and a half kilogram of methamphetamine. Those charges remain unresolved.

    i just dont understand how edward boroughf and robert turner are even on this indictment. both accused has been in and out of institutions the past several tears. the real question is who is really guilty or innocent here. what about timmy williams and larry williams. neither was mentioned. the sad part about this god awful mess is the children and families involved. other pepeople got caught up in their own mess and to get out they want to put blame on others. this is a sad situation so many lives ruined by this crap. the invaders must not be to organized they all sound like a bunch of idiots to me. thought an organized gang would be smarter than tellin on each other.

  2. Invader Rap Says:

    I am one of the afore mention Invaders and this article, as well as many others, are wrong. Of the 15, there are ten Invaders and they are not all members of the Midwest Chapter. The “telling on each other” comment is also a resounding “WRONG”. No Invaders EVER or will EVER “tell on” anything. So do the math “IDIOT” and figure out who did. So think about it for a second. If any of you were really informed, as well as I am (having actually read the indictment)you would realise just how sad this indictment really is. 16 years of investigating has only found two people in the whole indictment that even “allegedly” possesed any marijuana at all. Even the raids that were conducted to round myself and the rest out of our beds at 6am did not yield one spec of illegal substance. If we were really these notorious marijuana traffickers, as the government alleges, how come the most they could charge us with was “conspiracy to distribute” That means that for 16 years, they say we were “planning”. Wouldn’t you think they would have somthing with a little more substance? A state trooper can sit on the highway for 16 minutes and I’ll bet, if he really wants to, he can find good, clean, hard evidence that someone is speeding. Now after 16 years all they can find is enough to identify the equivelent of “planning” to speed. Get a clue people. We love our country and fear our governement. Now you know why.

    knowing one of your brothers,i know this is a bullshit trumped up charge. why risk everything for some fucking weed. good luck to all

  4. just me Says:

    Ok, maybe I am wrong, but 15 years and only 2.200 lbs spread out on 15 guys. Really don’t come out to all that much weed. Seems like some cops have a little too much time on their hands. And I have to agree about the conspiracy charge, if they had anything more substantial the charges would reflect it.
    Sounds like a witch hunt to me.

    To Dead Eye, Remaining Few, Slandering Fred Goodins name is bullshit. You must have no idea what you are talking about. Fred is a true brother, and friend to all who know him. Hating on other club members shows no class… I support all Invaders, and always will… Ride on Brothers..

  16. H1N1 Says:

    I hope they burn! Horrible and disgusting people. Some of these idiots had way to much money and way to many stupid people willing to do anything for them. Power trip, majorly. Having seen and being around such, disgusts me thinking they got away with so much for so long. Their such disgusting horrible people, I’ve never met so hateful and angry men. Then turn around and wanna PREACH out of the next. FYI I’m related to one of the dumb asses above. Ashamed of it to because the person(s) only caused harm to my family.

  17. H1N1 Says:

    HH, MO; Don’t use the term “Class” with the word invader, you must be a complete tard. There is nothing classy about them or what they’ve done, what they do. In fact name some things that have been positive, and good that they’ve done for us, the community and etc? Oh that’s right probably nothing because their a BIKER GANG.

  18. hardcore Says:

    What a Shock that our tax dollars were wasted on such time and bullshit petty crimes, HUH??? Yah well, I love the part where they added 16yrs with the 2,200 pounds of herb..sounds good to them..but Damn our tax dollars and the time investigating a club who obviously isn’t such an organized outlaw biker club, were wasted. To think that they could a been investigating real organized crimes that probably would of been worth talking about. Wow!! Too funny to see post from one of the alleged accused..wow!! I have seen 2 of the chapters act out of madness of greed and carelessness. I find that this is embarrassing to both paries. Whether or not who done what men should be men. The Cops should a gave up along time ago..for the love a god!!! Who cares what they got a way with and what they didn’t..it’s not your business. I personally don’t give a rats ass what happen to these bikers..cause what goes around comes around..shoulda been payin attention instead of worrying about what the other brother was doin. Next time you wanna sponsor some prospect make sure he knows he’s at least a real biker..those few that i saw had no organizational skills and were acting like a bunch a junior high girls competing to be the teachers pet. Those ladies and I saw them acting like a bunch of jealous to faced Bitches..I was not at all proud to say one of those bitches belonged to me..lmao..embarrassed to even witness the hilarious entertainment..the girls and i had a great laugh at these clueless boys that call themselves bikers…I lost a man who decided to let another man turn him into one of his bitches.

  23. Move on Says:

    Entertained and Ashamed, this is wayyy old, why are you on here talking crap? I’m not a biker club member, but who the hell cares if you were at some bar watching a bunch of drunks. Last time I checked, that’s what you do at a bar…get drunk…next forum please.
