   White Supremacist Gang Leader and Members and Associates Convicted on Racketeering and Murder Charges WASHINGTON – Five members and associates of a violent white supremacist gang , the 1488s , were convicted today in Alaska by a federal jury of RICO conspiracy , murder in aid of racketeering , kidnapping , and assault . Evidence presented at trial showed that the 1488s are a violent prison - based gang operating inside and outside of state prisons throughout Alaska . The 1488s use Nazi - derived symbols to identify themselves and their affiliation with the gang , including a 1488 “patch” tattoo which depicts an Iron Cross superimposed over a swastika . The tattoo can only be worn by “made” members who generally gained full membership by committing acts of violence on behalf of the gang . The gang has written rules and a code of conduct , including the creed that “the only currency we recognize is violence and unquestionable loyalty . ” Evidence presented at trial showed that Filthy Fuhrer , formerly known as Timothy Lobdell , 45 , founded and led the 1488 gang from inside Alaska’s maximum - security prison , where he is serving a 19 - year sentence for the attempted murder of an Alaska State Trooper . Fuhrer ordered members of the gang to commit violent kidnappings and assaults in the “free world” outside of prison . Trying to impose greater organization and structure with non - incarcerated members , Fuhrer believed that some members were defying the 1488 code of conduct and diminishing the power and influence of the gang . Fuhrer sent out a trusted lieutenant with a list of directives , these directives culminated in the kidnapping and assault of two low - level gang members on April 2 , 2017 , and July 20 , 2017 , and the kidnapping , assault , and murder of Michael Staton on Aug . 3 , 2017 . According to evidence presented at trial , 1488 members Roy Naughton , aka Thumper , 43; Glen Baldwin , aka Glen Dog , 40; and Colter O’Dell , 29 , worked with Craig King , aka Oakie , 56 , who was a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club , to kidnap and murder one of the victims , who had previously stolen from both King and the 1488s . King lined a room with plastic , where he and the 1488 defendants beat and tortured the victim . Baldwin and O’Dell then took the victim out to the woods , shot him , and burned his body . O’Dell earned his membership patch into the 1488s by committing the murder of Staton . “The guilty verdicts today strike a significant blow to the highest levels of the 1488 gang , ” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A . Polite , Jr . , of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division . “The Department of Justice and our law enforcement partners remain committed to combating and dismantling violent white supremacist gangs . ”“Violent gangs , especially those based upon racial hatred , are a plague to our society . As this case demonstrates , the crimes of organized prison gangs often go beyond the prison walls bringing violence into our communities , ” said U . S . Attorney S . Lane Tucker for the District of Alaska . “Today’s convictions are a major disruption to the operation of the 1488 prison gang and hold accountable those who order or commit brutal and heinous crimes . We will continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify , investigate and prosecute violent gang crimes regardless of where they take place . There is no higher priority than keeping our communities and the citizens of Alaska safe . ”“Today’s verdict demonstrates the FBI’s commitment to investigating and dismantling violent gangs , regardless of where they are being operated and who is leading them , ” said FBI Assistant Director Luis Quesada of the Criminal Investigative Division . “In collaboration with our federal , state , local and international partners , we will aggressively target and pursue violent offenders . This verdict sends a clear signal to others who engage in gang violence that we will hold them accountable and bring them to justice . ”“The inhumanity shown by members of the 1488 criminal enterprise , to include the kidnapping , torture , and murder of Michael Staton , is a gruesome example of why we must identify and dismantle violent criminal organizations , ” said Special Agent in Charge Antony Jung of the FBI Anchorage Field Office . “The morally despicable extremist prison gang has been seriously undermined thanks to the robust and effective , coordinated law enforcement and prosecution efforts shown throughout this case . These convictions will certainly make our community a safer place . ”Fuhrer was convicted of racketeering conspiracy , conspiracy in aid of racketeering , murder in aid of racketeering , kidnapping resulting in death , three counts of kidnapping conspiracy , two counts of kidnapping and two counts of assault in aid of racketeering . Naughton was convicted of racketeering conspiracy , conspiracy in aid of racketeering , murder in aid of racketeering , kidnapping resulting in death , three counts of kidnapping conspiracy , two counts of kidnapping and two counts of assault in aid of racketeering . Baldwin , O’Dell , and King were convicted of racketeering conspiracy , conspiracy in aid of racketeering , murder in aid of racketeering , kidnapping resulting in death , and kidnapping conspiracy . All five defendants face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole for the murder . The FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force , and the Alaska State Troopers , Alaska Bureau of Investigation , investigated the case in conjunction with the U . S . Attorney’s Office for the District of Alaska and the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section ( OCGS ) . Investigative assistance was provided by the IRS Criminal Investigation; the Bureau of Alcohol , Tobacco , Firearms and Explosives; the U . S . Postal Inspection Service , the U . S . Marshals Service , U . S . Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations , Anchorage Police Department ( APD ) , and the State of Alaska’s Department of Corrections . Trial Attorney Jeremy Franker of the Criminal Division’s OCGS and Assistant U . S . Attorneys William Taylor , James Klugman and Chris Schroeder are prosecuting the case .
