Operation Pure Luck

“Operation Pure Luck” spanned throughout multiple states and went on for four years. They were known for targeting violent crimes in the Las Vegas area. Police finally tracked down members of the motorcycle gangs.

Victor Ramirez of Wahiawa, Donald Dussell of Laie and Edward Chelby of Kalihi were arrested for battery and false imprisonment.

They have been turned over to the Honolulu Police Department and will be held there pending an extradition hearing.

“It’s important these individuals understand we’re going to come at them from all directions using all resources available in law enforcement partnerships,” Las Vegas Metro Police Department Assistant Sheriff Greg McCurdy said.

Police say among the property seized was also 43 firearms, 7.5 lbs. of methamphetamine, thousands of prescription pills and $8,000 cash.
