– A former member of the Comanchero outlaw motorcycle club has been stripped of his patch and identified as a police informer by his gang.
The suspected informer, an original Victorian member, had dated glamorous models before it all came unstuck last year.
It is widely speculated within the underworld he is cooperating with police, though it is not suggested he is linked to the newly formed Taskforce Keel, which has identified a rogue police officer after raids on bikie-linked properties uncovered hundreds of stolen documents from the force’s LEAP program.
Yesterday, Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said police had uncovered security breaches as late as last month and dating back three years – with information leaked to a high-profile bikie gang.
Those files contained information about “a small number of people” helping police with their investigations.
Sources have told the Herald Sun the outlaw bikie club which has corrupted the mature-age northern suburbs stationed police officer is the Hells Angels.
There are several high-ranking Hells Angels members in Victoria, with significant reach, including Nomads chapter senior members Peter Green and Ray Hamment Jr and East County chapter members Stephen Rogers and Peter “Skitzo” Hewat.
Police are aware rats in the ranks handing information to often high-ranking gang members have plagued undercover operations. Bandidos enforcer Toby Mitchell is believed to have used a former police officer to track a man he believed responsible for his shooting near his clubhouse in Weston Street, Brunswick.
Police also believe a 2010 undercover operation into Comanchero president Jay Malkoun, codenamed Corsair, was derailed by a tip-off by a police member.
The Herald Sun had learned of the covert investigation late in 2010 but was asked not to publish until the probe was over.
Outlaw motorcycle gangs such as the Comanchero, Hells Angels, Finks, Bandidos and Rebels have conducted research into the Echo Taskforce! which has been at the forefront of destabilising bikie criminal activity since 2011.
Alongside it are three taskforces, Razon, which is probing bikie links to nightclub security, Eagle (bikies infiltration into police members) and now Keel, which will seek to uncover the depth of sensitive information circulated to the underworld by at least one rogue officer.
Operation Resound is also working on bikie-tensions after an ambush by Hells Angels on Bandidos and Diablos members outside a Melbourne clubhouse.
There have been other worrying cases. Police are yet to discover how a suspected Melbourne drug boss became aware a police spy camera had been placed outside his northern suburbs factory.
He was arrested trying to fly out of Melbourne in his own aeroplane – Anthony Dowsley


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
