Police make five arrests in Fort McMurray outlaw biker investigation


Police have arrested five people and seized numerous weapons in a Fort McMurray outlaw biker investigation.

Wood Buffalo RCMP and Alberta’s law enforcement response team say their investigation began in late August after conflicts between the Warlocks and the Syndicate, a Hells Angels support club.

Officers raided three vehicles and a home alleged to be the clubhouse of the Warlocks last week.

They say officers seized gang paraphernalia, prohibited weapons including brass knuckles and 16 guns.

Although the guns were legal, police say they will be applying to have them destroyed.

Five alleged members of the Warlocks were arrested and face numerous charges including robbery and possession of a prohibited weapon.
