Pasco County Detective Brian Kozera, who runs the sheriff’s gang unit, describes the moment he first spotted Pasco Fire captain and paramedic Glen Buzze in public wearing his Pagan Motorcycle Club vest.
Capt. Buzze is a known chapter president of the Pagan’s, a “criminal motorcycle gang” defined by federal law enforcement.

Buzze was also wearing the “1 percent” patch, which according to law enforcement means the 1 percent of motorcycle clubs that don’t believe in following the law.
“They’re the mafia on motorcycles, ya know. They’re very organized. It’s organized crime,” Kozera said.
Kozera said he also spotted Buzze wearing “cracker bolts” on his vest, which is a known symbol for white supremacy.
ATF Agent Keary Hundt said the “cracker bolts” are “representative of the Nazi army.”
As the I-Team first reported, Buzze’s Facebook page included a post that stated “f*** cop clubs support your local 1 percent motorcycle clubs.”
“He’s against us he’s not for us,” Kozera said.
Federal and Pasco County authorities consider it a public safety issue due to his criminal gang status and the fact that firefighters and paramedics have access to sensitive information and sometimes work with law enforcement on sensitive cases.
“Do you feel having him in that position puts your life at risk?” the I-Team asked.
“Absolutely. Absolutely,” Kozera said.
The I-Team has found at least three local county firefighters are members of criminal motorcycle gangs: Two “Outlaws” in Hillsborough County Fire Rescue and Capt. Buzze in Pasco.
Neither department has a policy that prevents firefighters from joining criminal gangs.
“The way it stands now without a policy, you could have a Blood, a Crip, or a member of the KKK in your department. Is that acceptable to you?” the I-Team asked Pasco County administrator Michelle Baker.
“I have to do something that is legally defensible…,” Baker said.
Baker has executive power to create policy change.
“The county did not have a policy, does not have a policy,” Baker said. “We are looking to develop a policy and are having a difficult time finding such a policy in the state of Florida that we could utilize as a model.”
