Iron Horsemen president the latest Maryland motorcycle-club leader to face criminal charges | Citypaper Blogs

In the fall of 2009, the national president of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, David Keith Barbeito of Iron-Horsemen-MC-patch-272x300 Myersville, near Frederick, was indicted in West Virginia in a massive racketeering conspiracy to which he later pleaded guilty and in 2011 was sentenced to 30 months in prison. Federal inmate records show he was released in December 2011.

Earlier this year, the president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, Ronald L. “Bugs” Sells of Churchville, near Belair, was charged in a methamphetamine conspiracy to which he has since pleaded guilty, and is scheduled to be sentenced this summer. Two Baltimore men – Michael Privett and Robert Mansfield – were also charged in Pennsylvania as a result of the FBI’s undercover infiltration of the Outlaws chapter.

Most recently, and until now unreported by the media (or so it seems, based on Google searches), in May the president of the Southern Maryland chapter of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club, Robert Scott Grieninger, pleaded guilty to a drugs-and-weapons indictment that resulted from a July 2012 raid on the business he manages, Scooters Garage in La Plata, according to court records. Also pleading guilty in the Charles County case was Grieninger’s nephew, Christopher Scott Grieninger. Both are scheduled to be sentenced in August. Calls to their attorneys were not returned by press time.
