For the record, the Mongol patch holder who lived on July 7, when his club brother Shawn Fowler was murdered on the 210 Freeway in San Bernardino, California was Paul “Li’l Spider” Lemay.
Lemay is a lifetime Mongol and a charter member of the Mongols West Valley, Utah chapter.
Fowler and Lemay had just ridden almost 650 miles when Lemay’s motorcycle broke down. The two men and Fowler’s wife stopped in the east bound median and within minutes, at about four in the morning, unknown persons in the same lane fired multiple shots at the two men. Fowler was pronounced dead at the scene. Lemay was shot and seriously wounded.
This is not the first time Lemay’s name has appeared on this page or the first time he has paid a terrible price for wearing a Mongols patch.
Lemay was entrapped three times during the ATF’s so-called Operation Black Rain and was one of the 79 defendants in the resulting criminal case U.S. v. Cavazos et al. He was accused of selling a small amount of methamphetamine to “two undercover law enforcement officers” in Las Vegas in June 2006. Two months later he sold a confidential informant “narcotics” at the Studio Café in Los Angeles. According to the Cavazos indictment, Lemay offered “undercover law enforcement officers, posing as Mongols prospects,” cocaine while carrying a firearm at the Dawg House bar in City of Industry, California
In September 2009, 11 months after he was charged, Lemay pled guilty to Count One of the indictment which accused him of being “employed by and associated with the Mongols criminal enterprise, which enterprise engaged in and the activities of which affected interstate and foreign commerce, unlawfully and knowingly combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed together and with each other to violate Title 18, United States Code, Section 1962, that is, to conduct and participate, directly and indirectly, in the conduct of the affairs of the enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity, as that term is defined in Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1961(1) and 1961(5), consisting of multiple acts involving murder, in violation of California Penal Code Sections 31, 182, 187, 189, 217.1, and 664; robbery, in violation of California Penal Code Sections 211, 212.5(a), and 213; distribution of controlled substances, including methamphet-amine and cocaine, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 846; and multiple acts indictable under Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1956 and 1957 (money aundering). It was a further part of the conspiracy that each defendant agreed that a conspirator would commit at least two acts of racketeering in the conduct of the affairs of the enterprise.”
