Indictment reveals search at motorcycle club connected to firearms charges


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – On Wednesday, the US Attorney’s Office unsealed an indictment connected to an executed search warrant at the Grim Reapers Motorcycle Club in Evansville.

In the indictment, Gary Wayne Forston is accused of possessing firearms as a felon and possessing a sawed-off shotgun.

According to the indictment, Forston was in possession of multiple firearms:
A Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun
A Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun

The indictment said Forston had previously been convicted of a felony meth possession charge in July 2013.

As part of any possible sentence imposed, the US Attorney will also seek forfeiture of property including ‘any firearm or ammunition involved in or used in’ the charges.

According to the indictment, the forfeiture of property is not necessarily limited to the firearms and ammunition.

In an email from the US Attorney’s Office in Evansville, Forston was referenced as the president of the motorcycle club.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) were all involved in the search of the motorcycle club’s building just off of Diamond Ave. on Tuesday morning.
