BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The FBI and local police agencies are currently executing federal search warrants at multiple locations throughout WNY.
Residents nearby tell News 4 that there is a large police outside of the Kingsmen Motorcycle Club in North Tonawanda.
They came out to see what was happening and said they saw about a dozen officers going in and coming out of the house with boxes. The insignia that was on the front of the club house came down soon after.
Some people are defending the Kingsmen club members citing positive things they do for the community but others feel differently. “Not too safe but a little safer now that it is getting cleaned up. It did take a little longer than I thought for them checking around this place,” said Brandon Braughman.
Last week, a jury found Florida biker Andre Jenkins guilty of an execution-style murder in which he killed two members of the Kingsmen motorcycle club, Paul Maue and Daniel Szymanski, last fall. Police found their bodies in the front seat of a car with gunshot wounds next door to the Kingsmen Motorcycle Club in North Tonawanda.
There is no indication search warrants executed Wednesday are related to those murders.
