Published in 1%er News and All News

Gallatin police have identified the man believed to have stolen two Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the city.

Matthew Williams, 29, is wanted by police for thefts last month and in October, according to a Nixle alert sent out by police. The bikes were stolen from Gallatin residents who had advertised on the Craigslist website.

Police say Williams is a member of the outlaw motorcycle club known as “Sin City Deciples.” Several members of this group have also been indicted on federal charges and all should be considered armed and dangerous, police warn.

Williams has been identified as a suspect in similar crimes in Bowling Green, Ky. where he is also accused of attempted murder, as well as several jurisdictions in Middle Tennessee.

The Gallatin Police Department has outstanding warrants on Williams for theft over $10,000, and is seeking help locating him. Williams may be operating a black GMC Yukon or black Ford Expedition.
