Six Vagos bike club members charged in beating, kidnapping

GRANTS PASS — Police have released more details on the arrests of six men accused of beating and robbing a man who attempted to leave the Vagos Motorcycle Club.

The attack happened in August when an unnamed victim told fellow bikers he was quitting the Vagos Motorcycle Club. He was beaten by other members at Grants Pass Custom Motorcycle at 320 Redwood Highway.

The man was then taken to his house, where his attackers tried to steal his property, according to Grants Pass Department of Public Safety officials.

The man reported the crime to police, who worked with the Oregon Department of Justice during the lengthy investigation.

The six men, one of whom lives in Gold Hill, were arrested Tuesday on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree robbery, coercion and second-degree kidnapping. There were lodged in the Josephine County Jail, where five remained late Wednesday on $250,000 bail.

A sixth suspect posted bail and was released, police said.

The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected, police said.
