Bandido Reported Arraigned

The San Antonio Express-News reported this morning that Eddie “Eddie Flames” Martinez, a San Antonio chapter president of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, has been arrested on federal drug charges.

The report by Guillermo Contreras cites a criminal complaint affidavit and states that Martinez was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute by United States Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Chestney. Contreras does not say when Martinez was arraigned, the case has not appear in the Public Access to Court Electronic Records database and the San Antonio Clerk’s Office for the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas told The Aging Rebel the case is not docketed, so Contreras’ report is impossible to verify.

According to the Express-News, local police surveilled his house and found “empty heat-sealed bags and residue that tested positive for methamphetamine” in his trash. According to the San Antonio paper, police also noticed “a large wad of money on the console of his truck” during a traffic stop.

A federal search warrant was served on his home where police found indicators of membership in the Bandidos, 983.7 grams of methamphetamine and 9.3 grams of cocaine.

According to the Express-News Martinez will have a bail hearing on May 1. The Western District of Texas has also chosen to not yet make that information part of the public record.

    It appears that the leadership selection process may be somewhat flawed.

    I think it’s fake news. I find no mention of this story anywhere but the express news. I find no mention of “Eddie Flames” anywhere but this one story. He’s a “purported” regional president. He purports this? What region? How do you get to be a regional president and not one story about a crime, or an allegation, or anything?

    When Comey (FBI) said to get ready for “fake news”, I think this is at least one example of what he was talking about. The planting of fake news stories in select online outlets intended to have a effect on a limited number of people. If it’s fake, the Bandidos will know it, as they will know if they have a “Regional President” named “Eddie Flames”, however non-Bandidos, those people that do not know any Bandidos, or have access to their “insider” information would read this story and believe it, only because it appeared in the legitimate news outlet of Which then calls into question they’re legitimacy.

    Bandits need to be sure “indicators of membership in the Bandidos” and Lg amounts drugs are never under the same roof. It’s a purely logistics thing.
