Unconfirmed Report Says Biker Gangs Planning Attacks on Law Enforcement
KXAN is reporting that biker gangs are planning to arm themselves with explosives and target police officers in Texas according to a bulletin sent out by the Department of Safety.
The report cites and unnamed informant claiming members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club who are in the military are supplying gang members with grenades and C-4 explosives.
The bulletin said gangs are "plotting to target high-ranking law enforcement officials with car bombs." It also says members will try to run over officers at traffic stops or use grenades and Molotov cocktails.
Specific locations listed in the memo list Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Houston and the McLennan County Jail.
The document does say the information remains unconfirmed, but the information is being shared with law enforcement agencies all the same.
In a recent interview, Bandidos leader Jimmy Graves said the exact opposite. Graves told the station that no threats are being made to police officers after the recent biker gang shootout inside a Waco Twin Peaks restaurant.
