The Coffin Cheaters Motorcycle Gang Member Has Been Charged Following a Series of Violent Events in Western Suburbs
In relation to the Coffin Cheaters Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMCG) and a series of incidents occurring in the western suburbs, a 36-year-old man from Truganina, who is a confirmed member of the OMCG, faced charges overnight following his arrest by detectives from the Echo Taskforce.
The Truganina resident was apprehended and subsequently interrogated by law enforcement authorities. He now stands accused of a range of offenses, including extortion, false imprisonment, assault, assault with a weapon, and making threats to cause harm.
The individual spent the night in custody and was scheduled to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today to address these charges.
These charges stem from a string of events that have unfolded over the past two weeks in the localities of Laverton and Altona North.
The first incident, which reportedly transpired on the 27th of September, unfolded at a Laverton business establishment. During this incident, a man was allegedly subjected to threats and physical assault.
Subsequently, on the 2nd of October, another incident occurred at the victim’s workplace in Altona North. This incident allegedly originated from a minor traffic incident involving a company vehicle, and an employee was purportedly subjected to threats and physical assault.
Later on the same day, yet another incident took place at the same Altona North location. It is believed that multiple individuals were engaged in a violent altercation on the property. As a result of this altercation, two men are presently hospitalized.
The investigation into these incidents continues to be actively pursued by the Echo Taskforce and Hobsons Bay Crime Investigation Unit. Authorities are urging any potential witnesses or individuals with pertinent information to come forward and cooperate with law enforcement.
