LANCASTER – On 2/7/12, a home burglary occurred in the area of 90th St. West and Avenue C-10 Lancaster. During the burglary multiple firearms, including high powered rifles were stolen, along with valuable coins, electronics and other items.

The day after the burglary, on 2/8/12, Gregory Whitfield 29 of Lancaster was stopped for a traffic violation and found to be in possession of a handgun that was stolen during the residential burglary on 2/7/12.

Follow up investigation by the Lancaster Station Burglary Suppression Team was conducted and a search warrant was obtained for the residence of Gregory Whitfield. It was determined through the investigation that Whitfield was connected to the Vagos outlaw motorcycle gang.

Due to this information and the fact that several high powered rifles had been stolen, the Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Bureau, “SWAT” team was called in to serve the search warrant .

Detained at the location after the service of the warrant was Robert Fullbright 74, Nicole Benson 31, and Christopher Geseel 32, all of Lancaster. The location was then searched by the Burglary Suppression Team, assisted by the Lancaster Station LANCAP Team, and the TOP/CORE Teams.

During the search, 10 rifles, shotguns and pistols were recovered, along with both gold and silver coins, jewelry and other items taken during the burglary on 2/7/12, all of which were positively identified by the burglary victim.

Based on the stolen property recovered, Gregory Whitfield faces additional charges of burglary and receiving stolen property. Robert Fulbright, who is a member of the Vagos motorcycle gang was charged with possession of stolen property, Nicole Benson, who is currently on felony probation for narcotics, was charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, and Christopher Geseel was charged with being a parolee at large.

All suspects are being held at the Lancaster Station Jail. The investigation is continuing.

      My comments were edited by someone. I can only assume it was this sites administrator. Who knows; Anyway. The posts I were responding to were removed from this blog. They made it look as though my posts were confrontational and directed at Danella. She knows I was directing them at those punk [removed] that were talkin shit about our local twenty-two. That’s [removed] ridiculous. Twisting our conversation around like that. Don’t believe everything you see everyone. This false representation and alteration of our conversation makes me sick. Be careful whoever you are. This ain’t fiction boy..Its the real.

    For the record Greg Whitfield IS NOT a Vago and they should have stated that the one person who was renting a room in the residence and is indeed a VAGO was not prosecuted by the DA. (DA Reject) another crime gets pinned on the Vagos when they had NOTHING to do with it. A person cannot always help what their room mates do. and this particular vago is one of the few, no make that one of the ONLY TRULY RIGHTEOUS people I have met in the almost 20 years that I have been in the Antelop[e Valley. he doesn’t need to go around talking about how righteous and down he is. He shows his colors (no pun intended) through his actions not his words. And a fine respectful gentleman that I’d bet money if ya all didn’t have some preconceived notion of what you think bikers are about or you did not know he was a club member you would very likely find him a likeable guy. one who watches out for people and when YOUR child is in danger from some kid racing dirt bikes up the street at an extremely high rate of speed in an area where children play, he would be the one to stop the speeder and politely ask them to slow down while others would simply stand there talking about how dangerous the speeder is and putting kids at risk but yet doing nothing about it. he would also be the one, not to be standing around telling you how he would be the one there if you ever needed anything, he would be the one not saying a word beforehand yet the one who would be there in real life to lend a helping hand. He was my neighbor for a few years and NEVER did I have any problems from him or anyone on that property which is far more than i can say for the deputy sheriffs home and people who lived there who was also a neighbor. So now we all know the truth and since it is a matter of public record ya all can check it for yourselves. NO VAGOS WERE PROSECUTED NOR DID THEY HAVE ANY INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS CRIME. Why dont people find someone else to put the blame on. If they want to harass real criminals who cause immeasurable harm and do so to our most vulnerable citizens (children) the should go after DCFS.

    The Vagos are just a bunch of girl-scouts wearing biker vests, not surprised they couldn’t pull off a simple burglary and stay off the radar. Support your local 81.
