The two founding members of Descendants will be expelled from Australia in a crackdown being carried out in the heart of the Adelaide bikie scene.
Tom and Perry Mackie, two of the most senior office holders in the Descent motorcycle gang, were arrested at their home in Adelaide on Tuesday morning.
The couple is being held at an unnamed immigration facility pending the cancellation of their Australian visas and transfer to New Zealand.
The move would paralyze the ruling gang, whose elements are involved in the multi-million dollar methamphetamine trade in South Australia.
The two brothers, 64 and 65, were arrested at their Ingle Farm and Prospect home and are expected to move to New Zealand in the coming days.
The arrests are the result of a joint effort by the Department of Home Affairs, Border Force, SA Police, Australian Federal Police and the Australian Taxation Office.
AFP Acting Detective Inspector Gavin Stone said the two men posed a significant risk to the community because of their extensive criminal records and links to the Descendants motorcycle gang.
“The criminal biker gangs exist for only one reason – to make as much money as possible, at all costs,” he said.
“They are a sophisticated, ruthless, organized criminal network that doesn’t respect the law and thinks of themselves as above it, and Heredity is no different.
“The AFP-led National Anti-Gang Force will use all the strength we have to keep Australians safe from these criminal gangs.”
SA Police Detective Inspector Steve Taylor said motorcyclists believed they were acting outside the law “but they couldn’t, and this is a clear example”.
The commander of the Border Force’s special investigations, Greg Linsdell, said the government had the power to revoke anyone’s visa on character grounds.
“Any non-citizen with an extensive criminal history and involvement with criminal organizations, such as the OMCG, can expect their Australian visa to be canceled and removed from our country.”
The Mackie brothers will join more than 300 bike and organized crime figures to be expelled from Australia on the basis of characters including failed bikie boss Vince Focarelli and senior Mongol member Andrew Peter Stevens.
The Mackie brothers were arrested earlier this year along with nine other members of the lineage for a brawl in the driveway of Blair Athol.
It was a rare display of strength from the club’s most senior members, who remained relatively free from the courts as they got older.
The brothers co-founded the gang in 1974.
Recently the gang was the target of a multi-agency task force called Operation Jarmo.
Federal Police believe Descendants members were working with the Hells Angels to gain market share in the crystal meth import trade.
The catalyst for the initiation of Jarmo was the increasing number of detected large-scale drug transports into Australia.
The operation resulted in several arrests, including that of a gang member and confiscation of kilograms of drugs and a 9mm pistol.
In 2013, the gang members were linked to a $ 151 million drug syndicate that the police dismantled as part of Operation Divulge.
The crackdown resulted in the arrest of 25 people including members, colleagues and prospective Descendants.
TVNZ reporters Emily van Velthooven and Jesse Tuke have family in Team NZ.
There are two American Cup reporters with part in the walk on Team NZ – their brothers are on board.
Emily van Velthooven – Simon’s younger sister – and Blair’s sailor brother, Jesse Tuke, are part of the TVNZ reporting family.
Van Velthooven is a reporter for 1NEWS, while this is Tuke’s first foray into television as part of the seven-member TVNZ AC team, hosted by Toni Street and Scotty Morrison with Jack Tame on the reporting team.
The two siblings were in Bermuda four years ago to support their brother in winning the Auld Mug. They said they would feel better seeing him back home in Waitematā.
“I am very pleased with the reaction from the Kiwi who has just sailed,” said van Velthooven. “I remember being completely blown away by innovation and determination the first time I watched Emirates Team New Zealand in Bermuda.
“Bermuda is great – but I think Auckland would be better. We have a great fan zone to watch the races and some great bars and restaurants right in the middle. Even if you’ve never gone sailing, this is a party you don’t want. miss. “
Tuke has reporters and emcees in his title. She will be out in the water on TVNZ’s chase boat and mingle with the audience.
The snappy sailor suggests the people might confuse him and his brother – and says if he were to interview Blair he would try hard not to laugh. “I don’t think Blair and I have ever had such a serious conversation in our lives. Keeping facial expressions when asking big questions will be a real challenge.”
Tuke said he had fun growing up, sailing with all of his brothers, and even won national championship at one point with Blair, but said he was replaced by “someone named Peter”.
“We used to have regular Hobie Cat sailing races where the two youngest brothers (Blair and I) would race against the two eldest (Dan and Nathan). And like America’s Cup, it would always end up with some big bickering, water-offs and a couple of firefights if things really heat up, “said Tuke.
He said that so far Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli was a team to watch out for.
“There have been some good battles out in the water already and they will be up against each other as soon as they reach the water. Prada captain Jimmy Spithill is the main contender and he has to finish it so beware of the fiery Aussie … Overall, LR looks like it has a versatile package. strength, which will be needed under the various conditions that we will see in Hauraki this summer. “
He said the first race of the Copa America will be a moment that touches your heart when they cross the line for the first time and you will see which ships excel.
“The American Cup has rumors around it that I don’t think you would get with any other sport. Every four years or so it stops our country and everyone around it. I think it’s a combination of heaps of history, innovation and the fact that the country is small. We’re pretty good at it. There’s nothing better than Auckland for sailing spectacle – City of Sails for a reason. “
PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) – At the ages of 25 and 22, Bryan and Josh Cannon are breathing life into the world of Central Illinois fashion respectively. They bring new styles to 1Hundred Degrees Fashion Wear. This is their Peoria clothing store that they open at the end of October.
“What a wonderful feeling to know that [we’re] brings a whole culture here, “said Josh.
The Peoria natives say it all started with a journey east.
Bryan said, “We are [were] went to New York just to talk to a few people [artist and repertoire representatives] and visiting several families and leading to one thing over another. People love the way we talk to the way we dress and think we should sell clothes. “
The Cannon brothers started running. They officially launched 1Hundred Degrees Fashion Wear online last December which sells hoodies, pants, shirts and coats. At the turn of the new year, the two expanded their presence by doing a pop-up shop.
“That’s a really good thing that balances us. We both know our roles, “said Josh. “So overall just fun.”
Bryan and Josh’s path to entrepreneurship came fast, but not easy. The two of them actively work to create opportunities for themselves, even when their environment is difficult.
“We [didn’t] grow in the best of environments, “Bryan said. “Want to make it – get the support we have and know it [we’re] make them look better, they feel better, it means a lot to me. “
The community gathered behind them. Both said that they have support speaks volumes.
Bryan said, “All my friends [were] on the same page as us. So getting their support made things easier. ”
The Cannon brothers say the shop is a way to give back to the community that raised them and set an example for those who come after them.
Even though the two of them might be young, they didn’t let that stop them from building their fashion empire. They have built the legacy they want to leave behind.
“[We’re trying to] “help Peoria as much as possible to grow,” said Josh.
Bryan plans to use the store as a means of building generational wealth.
“I want my people to profit from the moment I want to stop doing this, if I choose to stop doing this,” he said.
And the Cannon brothers’ message was clear to aspiring entrepreneurs.
“Many people [are going] to say you can’t do it. But if you ignore it and just focus really hard and work on it every day… ”Josh said.
