FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MOTORCYCLE CLUB MEMBER SENTENCED
FOR METH CONSPIRACY
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Matt J. Whitworth, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a motorcycle club member was sentenced in federal court today for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
William Eneff, also known as “Muff,” 59, of Lee’s Summit, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Fernando J. Gaitan this morning to seven years in federal prison without parole.
On June 3, 2009, Eneff pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine between Jan. 1, 2002, and May 31, 2007.
Eneff, a member of the El Forastero Motorcycle Club, admitted that members of El Forastero and the affiliated Galloping Goose Motorcycle Club were required to annually pay dues and attend a certain number of motorcycle trips, known as runs, each year. On each run, the members were required to pay money that was pooled, or collected by each club charter, then forwarded to the specific Galloping Goose or El Forastero charter that hosted the particular motorcycle run in order to purchase methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana. Those drugs were maintained in run bags, which were distributed to all club members who attended the run.
Eneff was released from prison in 2005 and resumed his membership with El Forastero upon his release. Eneff admitted that he paid his required dues and attended at least three runs between 2005 and 2007.
Eneff is the sixth co-defendant to plead guilty and be sentenced for his role in the drug-trafficking conspiracy. Michael Hensley, also known as “Joe Poke,” 44, address unknown, was sentenced on July 15, 2009, to 10 years in federal prison without parole. Robert R. Peters, 52, of Kansas City, Kan., was sentenced on Oct. 8, 2009, to eight years in federal prison without parole. Robert L. Mays, also known as “Goose Rob,” 53, was sentenced on Oct. 8, 2009, to five years in federal prison without parole. Gary Mickiewicz, also known as “New Yorker,” 59, of Blue Springs, Mo., was sentenced on July 16, 2009, to five years in federal prison without parole. Steven M. Street, also known as “Goose Steve,” 42, address unknown, was sentenced on Aug. 10, 2009, to time served.
Five additional members of the motorcycle clubs have also pleaded guilty and await sentencing: Timothy R. Davis, 50, of Kansas City, Mo., Donald Culey, also known as “Kooly,” 41, of Kansas City, Kan., Donald Street, also known as “Donnie,” 37, of Edwardsville, Kan., and Michael Fitzwater, also known as “Holms,” 61, and Michael Hensley, also known as “Joe Poke,” 44, addresses unknown. Each of the defendants admitted that, as active members, they participated in the distribution of between 500 and 1,500 grams of methamphetamine.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeff Valenti. It was investigated by the Independence, Mo., Police Department.
