Bandidos Motorcycle Club member sentenced to prison after FBI investigation



NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The U.S. Attorney’s Office says a member of the Bandidos is set to serve 21 months in prison after investigators found illegally-owned guns in his home. The Bandidos member, 42-year-old Jonathan Bivins, was prohibited from owning firearms as a previously convicted felon, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) says.

In the fall of 2023, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement agents executed search warrants on multiple people they say have ties to the Bandidos. The massive statewide raid came in response to a fatal shooting in Red River, New Mexico. The DOJ calls the Bandidos a “notorious” club with 75 to 100 members across the state.

The DOJ says the raid uncovered 13 firearms in Bivins’ bedroom. Bivins pled guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms. Now a judge has handed him a 21-month sentence followed by three years of supervised release, the DOJ says.
