Mongol Sentenced

A long, strange, overblown and mostly secret racketeering case finally ended last Friday when a Mongol named Eric Eugene “Whitey” Lundin was sentenced to seven years in federal prison, and four years of supervised release for possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime.

Lundin is 67-years-old and in poor health. He had faced seven, separate counts that carried a maximum penalty of life behind bars. Lundin’s Presentence Report, Plea Agreement and Statement of Reasons were all sealed by District Judge Jon S. Tigar in San Francisco.

According to court records, in April 2013 Lundin forced his way into a mobile home occupied by a woman named Susan Hinds. Lundin claimed Hinds’ son, Joseph Miller, had stolen marijuana from him and he threw what appears to have been a temper tantrum. According to Hinds, Lundin was carrying two guns. He broke her television by striking it with one of the guns, forced her into his truck, forced her to ingest pills that he told her were “methadone,” claimed membership in the Mongols and told the 63-year-old woman that Mongols do not “leave witnesses.”

Three deputies from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office went to Lundin’s home without a warrant, arrested him and searched his residence. They found marijuana, two pistols, a .22 caliber rifle, some ammunition and Mongols insignia. Lundin was charged with kidnapping, assault, brandishing a firearm, burglary, being a convicted felon in possession of firearms, administering drugs to commit a felony, vandalism and transportation and possession of a controlled substance. But, the state charges didn’t hold up because the warrantless search was illegal.

Federal Case

So the Department of Justice, which is always eager to find racketeering predicates against the Mongols Motorcycle Club took, over the case and indicted Lundin in June 2013.  That case stalled. The official record is mostly filled with “sealed motions” and “motions to suppress.”

Lundin was the target of a superseding indictment filed in July 2014 that claimed that he had thrown his tantrum in Hinds home on behalf of the Mongols. The superseding indictment was hardly about Lundin at all. It was much more about the Mongols.

“The Mongols gang is a nationwide organization and has made efforts to expand internationally.”

“Members of the Mongols commit, attempt, and threaten to commit acts of violence, including murder, to protect and expand the enterprise’s criminal operation, which includes assaults,  murder, intimidation, and threats of violence directed against rival gang members, law enforcement, those who are perceived threats to the Mongols enterprise and its activities, and potential witnesses to the crimes of the enterprise. Members of the Mongols promote a climate of fear through intimidation, violence and threats of violence intended to promote the authority of the Mongols enterprise and insulate its members from liability for the drug-trafficking and violent crimes of the organization. Members of the Mongols use the enterprise to murder, attempt to murder, assault, and threaten those who pose a threat to the enterprise.”

Acted On Behalf

Lundin, according to the indictment, threw his temper tantrum, “as consideration for the receipt of, and as consideration for a promise and agreement to pay, anything of pecuniary value from the Mongols, and for the purpose of gaining entrance to and maintaining and increasing position in the Mongols, an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity.”

Lundin finally pled guilty last November. The amount of time he will actually have to spend in prison remains secret.

According to a press release distributed last Friday by the U.S. Attorney Office for the Northern District of California, Lundin “admitted that on April 22, 2013, he used a Colt .38 caliber revolver and a semi-automatic handgun to instill fear in, intimidate, and detain a female kidnapping victim.  Lundin admitted that he targeted the victim at least in part because he believed his daughter and his home had been robbed by an associate of a relative of the victim.  Lundin believed it was important to maintain respect for the Mongols, and his status as a member, by responding to the robbery.  Lundin acknowledged that during the course of the kidnapping, his victim was trapped in the vehicle and he stated “Mongols don’t leave witnesses.”

    I don’t see any legitimate connection with the Mongols MC as Lundin tried to collect payment for his goods. I understand the charges against him, but how in the world does a private action by a looney tune implicate a motorcycle club?

    What if looney Lundin said he was from the county persecutor’s office…would that implicate the persecutor? What if he claimed to be representing the Martian Volunteer Infantry…would the persecutors be trying to serve UFOso? WTF?

    Eric Eugene “Whitey” Lundin is not a member of the Mongols Motorcycle club and was not a member at the time of his arrest. He had been a member, but left due to medical reasons. After his arrest, he was put OUT IN BAD STANDINGS.

    So he bought himself a few years at the end of his life to meditate on the fact that he ended his life. Such a deal.
