On 07/19/09 Troop E members conducted a motorcycle enforcement detail on St-Rt-104 in the T/Williamson.  Detail was held in conjunction with an annual street drag race held in Wayne County.  During the course of the detail numerous motorcycles were inspected and UTT’s issued for violations.

Prior to the commencement of the detail a group of in excess of 100 motorcycles were observed traveling east on St-Rt-104.  This group had riders strategically break off from the group and block intersections of roadways that crossed St-Rt-104.  Troop E Motor Unit members were able to flag the riders to the shoulder of St-Rt-104 and inspections were conducted of riders who were members of the Iron Horsemen MC, Sons of Silence MC and the Phantoms MC.

Patches were observed from the following states, New York, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Maine, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Illinois, Maryland and the District of Columbia.  During the course of the inspection Eddie Gene Reed 03/26/57 1308 S. Greer Memphis, TN was arrested for VIN violations and CPW 4th Degree.  Reed displayed colors from the Iron Horsemen in Kentucky.

After riders were released from the initial traffic stop, Tpr. Eric Harper and K-9 Skiff conducted a cursory search of general area to see if any subjects had attempted to discard contraband.  K-9 skiff located a loaded 5 shot Smith & Wesson revolver along a wooded area where the motorcycles were stopped as well as a padlock wrapped in a bandana.  Both items appeared to have been placed just into the wooded area off the shoulder of the highway.  File check on weapon was negative.

Detail was completed at approximately 3:00PM with 2 motorcycles seized by DMV Field Investigations for further inspection.  Groups observed during the detail included the Iron Horsemen, Sons of Silence, Phantoms,  Brotherhood and the Road Agents.  Please refer to attached photographs of subjects.
