James Caffey


The eighth of nine sealed indictments returned Nov. 10 in the Twin Peaks shootout was unsealed Tuesday.

James Madison Caffey, 39, of Gilmer, who was among 106 bikers indicted on first-degree felony engaging in organized criminal activity charges, remains in the McLennan County Jail under $250,000 bond.

Caffey was arrested in Tyler last week and was taken to the Smith County Jail. His indictment remained sealed until he was brought to McLennan County, officials said.

The ninth biker indicted under seal remains at large, McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Tuesday. The nine were indicted under seal because they had not been arrested before the grand jury session.

Others named in sealed indictments who have been booked into the McLennan County Jail or other jails include Cory McAlister, 36, of Ore City; Christopher Carrizal Sr., 50, of Dallas; Jerry Edward Pierson, 49, of Dallas; Paul Russell Miller, 39, of Gholson; Ray Asbary Nelson, 42, of Waco; Jeffrey Veillon, 53, of Wylie; and Clifford Pearce, 52, of Waco.

McNamara said a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force and his deputies have been rounding up the bikers named in the sealed indictments.

A McLennan County grand jury is scheduled to meet again Wednesday. McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has said the remaining 80 cases arising from the 177 arrested May 17 will be considered by a grand jury “in some form or fashion.”

He declined to elaborate, and it is not known if the grand jury meeting Wednesday will be asked to consider more biker cases.

Nine bikers were killed and 20 others were wounded in a gunbattle between rival biker groups and police during a May 17 noon-hour meeting of bikers at the former Waco restaurant.
