Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco has announced the arrests of three motorcycle gang members for the murder of an Outlaws club president.
Charged with first degree murder are 51-year-old Michael "Pumpkin" Mencher, 26-year-old Alan "Big Bee" Guento and 29-year-old Christopher "Durty" Cosimano. Nocco says all three are members of the motorcycle gang "The 69ers".
They're charged with gunning down 44-year-old Paul Anderson, president of the Cross Bayou chapter of the Outlaws motorcycle gang Thursday afternoon as Anderson sat in his pickup truck at the NB exit ramp of the Suncoast Parkway in Pasco County.
Nocco says the two gangs have been feuding, but what concerns him most is the potential for bystanders to be hurt.
"Bad things happen to bad people, but what we don't want is innocent people to get hurt," said Nocco.
And that's because Nocco is expecting more violence between these two groups. He says, if you see something, say something to law enforcement.
