According to court documents, in April 2017, the FBI, and later the DEA, began an investigation into the drug trafficking organizations that had supplied motorcycle clubs, including the Pagans Motorcycle Club, operating in the Middle District of Florida with distribution amounts of methamphetamine. The Middle District of Florida includes the Tampa Bay area.

During the investigation, law enforcement learned that Caylor-Hernandez was one of the leaders of a DTO distributing kilogram amounts of methamphetamine to other DTOs and individuals located in central Florida. Members of the Caylor-Hernandez DTO transported methamphetamine from Georgia to various cities in central Florida, including St. Augustine, Holly Hill, and Daytona Beach, for further distribution.

One of the members of the Caylor-Hernandez DTO, Kerr, then distributed the methamphetamine to Burt and Shettler. At the time, Burt was a member of the Pagans’ Mother Chapter, a group of 13 members that direct the Pagans’ criminal activities throughout the United States. Shettler was a member of the Thunderguards Motorcycle Club, a club affiliated with the Pagans.

Law enforcement also learned that Andrews, who was the sergeant-at-arms or enforcer for the local Pagans’ chapter located in Daytona Beach, received distribution amounts of methamphetamine from several sources, including a DTO operating in both Georgia and central Florida. That DTO transported large amounts of methamphetamine from Georgia to central Florida for further distribution.
