Monkey bike mayhem in the Inner North

By 24 January 2007 35

The ABC reports on a night of madness with allegedly Rebel linked bikies trying to recover an accursed monkey bike they say was stolen from them.

“The court heard that just before midnight AEDT yesterday, Gregory Seears, his brother James and nephew Grant were involved in two violent home invasions last night.

Police say the men entered a house in Lyneham and assaulted a man, demanding to know where the bike was.

It is alleged that when another man who had the bike arrived, they forced him into the back of a car and took him to a house in Dickson.”

The Seears were caught by police trying to make off with their monkey bike and have been refused bail.

I wouldn’t have thought the kind of chaps that are monkey bike enthusiasts would be involved in “violent home invasions”. SLANDEROUS!

What the hell is a monkey bike?
And how small is this bike if a monkey can ride it? Must be nice if they are that desperate to get it back. Why not call the police and report the monkey bike as stolen?

Stealing a bike from members/associates of a bikie gang could almost be considered a form of natural selection.

Bikie threatened to knee-cap man: court

A Rebels bikie gang member threatened to shoot a man in the knees after accusing him of stealing a miniature motorbike belonging to his deaf son, a Canberra court heard on Wednesday.

Gregory Seears, 54, of Kaleen, his deaf son Grant, 26, and brother James Seears, 52, of Girralang, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court charged with trespassing with the intent to cause harm, trespassing with the intent to cause damage, common assault, assault causing actual bodily harm and unlawful confinement.

Constable Richard Gough said Canberra man Stephen Watsford had bought a miniature motorbike for $100 from Bradley Walker in Lyneham on Saturday.

The constable said Mr Walker was woken on Tuesday night by three men claiming the bike had been stolen and demanding its return.

Const Gough said Mr Walker was assaulted, dragged around his house and garden, and threatened as the men searched for the bike, which was not there.

Mr Walker told police the heavily bearded man (Gregory) said: “Don’t tell anyone or we’ll put bullets in your knees”, the court heard.

And, pointing to his Rebels motorbike vest, Gregory allegedly said: “Do you know these people?” He demanded Mr Walker call his friend and ask him to return the bike.

When the men found Mr Watsford at a friend’s house, two friends fled and called police, but Mr Watsford and another friend were attacked.

The pair were then forced into a car and driven to Mr Watsford’s house, where two of the accused men smashed open a door and a bike was found, Const Gough told the court.

Gregory said: “I need you to open the back gate to get my bike. It’s nothing against you, my son is deaf and has worked hard for this motorbike”, Const Gough told the court.

But as the motorbike was being loaded into the back of a station wagon, police arrived, the court heard.

Magistrate John Burns, who was told all three charged men had significant criminal backgrounds, refused bail. “No bail conditions to my mind would be sufficient to alleviate my concerns of witnesses being interfered with,” he said.

All three men were remanded in custody and are due to reappear in court on February 14.

Good to see Giralang is still as family friendly as when I left in 1997

while i loathe thieves, and think hanging from telegraph poles is an appropriate punishment, this form of behaviour is appalling.

i hope these thugs do hard time.

Nice to see the law coming down hard on these innocent people retriving stolen property. Cannot wait to see whether they now have the balls to carry out their threats.

To Le Suede.Typical know all dickhead gobbin off with a load of crap without knowing jack about the facts.The disabled young man who’s bike was stolen reported it to the ACT’s finest over a week before his father and uncle stepped in and retrieved it about a day later.If you ever have something pinched it might be a good idea to ring the Seears boys when the cops fail to help.No wonder only 40% of Canberrans have faith in a police service that just doesn’t give a rat’s about a disabled kid without much money.

To Bonfire,
Yeah you’d be the kind of f–ken hero who would bravely look straight past the pain in your kid.s eyes and stick your chest out and say “i’ve rang the police son i.m sure they will come and see us about it one day,that.s the best i can do”.A bit of ticker trouble eh c–t? I’m sure your kid’s gunna love the cops when he grows up.Why because his brave daddy lead him to beleive they would bring his toys back.When they walk you should show ya kid your not really the whimp he thinks you are and go give these lawless thugs a piece of your mind.(oops sorry superhero forgot about the ticker problem )

P.S. to bonfire,
I’m just wondering how you saw past your big he-man chest to notice some young bloke having a bit of fun on Australia Day.Someone else told ya didn’t they because you spend every day you have off trying to convince that poor kid of yours that your not really a gutless c–ksucker

Hey Tad i heard he’s a real decent little gentleman until someone f–ks him over then they reckon he’s more like that big green mother.If a few more people would take a leaf out of his book some dumbarse cops might get the message, but then again lets not forget their main priority is revenue gathering not looking after our families and property.I really don’t beleive he’d threaten to ruin a bloke’s knees though even if that bloke was mixed up with a bunch of callous theives.He must have though – the cops said so.

“To Simto

He may not know much but I know a hell of a lot. They are so tough they threaten old people over names on the back of leather vests. Most of us stopped being in gangs when we were 13yo. Canberra bike gangs are a joke and an embarassment to the larger parts of their gang interstate.

But tell us all about your extensive knowledge of them. It takes a special man to wear a leather vest nowadays

“He must have though – the cops said so”

No, actually it was the witness that said that Einstein. The Police merely repeated it

When i was a youngin’ men had balls and it was standard practice for fathers to go in and bat for their kids and any other kids they saw being hard done by.Yes DJ,i did miss out on one thing as a child,there was no catshit in the sandpit cause you ate it all.And you reckon i’m the fool.

boxy you are a moron.

youre probably an associate or nom.

no doubt ths pissweak defence will let you ride further up the pack with the other monkey bike riders, and not sot in the f100 with the wives and gf’s.

how do you know? Boxy sure knows what he is talking about.

Seems to me the story gets better and better. one bit missing, the victims are really the thugs. The Seears boys are the heros

You’ve got it all over me. Your wit. The depth of the argument. You are the complete Box. The box who was no doubt always picked last because of a flatulence problem and poor coordination.

I am concerned that you keep mentioning other mens balls and batting quite a lot. I thought the Canberra boys were still called Pebels? I guess you can really see the quality shining through.

Anybody else want to put together a fighting fund for capes and external underwear for the Seears boys?

My wit and depth of argument you f–kwit, aren’t you the dickhead that that’s talking about catshit, sand and flatulence when everybody else is saying something about what i believe to be a miscarrage of justice.Other mens balls,your right there because you certainly wouldn’t wouldn’t be able to rustle up enough to drop out to the Rebels clubhouse and call them pebels. I bet you collect heaps for your childish little fund but who are you going to get to deliver it because ,as you put it,other men have the balls,not you.We can do without f–kwit,gutless c–ts like you putting s–t on people you haven’t even got the ticker to face.From what i can gather the Seears boys make you look like a piece of shit whose only thoughts on the matter are posted here where your identity is hidden just like so many other heros.

Hey super hero bonfire you dumb f–k i might get back to you when ya tell me how somebody can sot in a ute.You probably made that poor kid of yours sot in the back so you wouldn’t have to look him in the eye cause his toys still haven’t been returned. Don’t worry the boys that wouldn’t lie in court will turn up soon, then you can sot him up front with his hero dad.

Thanks smurf.Your right, so far it looks like i’m the only one that knows what he is talkin about but i suppose we gotta let the kids and other assorted gutless wonders have their fun hiding behind their keyboards.By the way all you gutless f–ks who are gobin off about something you know absolutely nothing about i’m happy to post my name ,address and phone number – after all you heros of course.I guess i won’t have to eh.

Hey vg your real full of valuable info aren’t you.I just bet you won’t reveal your source though, because that would make them the liar,or are you actually the dikkhead that’s full of it. I can see you spend a lot of time studying the law eh.For starters if you know what a witness said you must have been there unless your the lying cop trying to cover your knowall arse.If it takes a special man to wear colours these days then i bet you dont have em but what makes our Mr.Knowall C–ks–ker so sure i don’t.
