(FreedomBeacon.com)- The FBI searched the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club’s clubhouses in Westport on Thursday. The FBI has been looking into the motorcycle gang and some of its members for months.
Two clubhouses may be found on American Legion Highway. Both were combed over as a part of the FBI’s inquiry.
At least eight FBI agents in bulletproof vests and assault guns, along with Westport police, were still present at the Hell’s Angels clubhouse at 560 American Legion Highway and a nearby house at 2:30 p.m.
Lines of vehicles, some with FBI officers inside, departed the site, which is also a working farm, just before 3 o’clock.
The FBI is “doing court-authorized operations in conjunction with an ongoing federal investigation,” according to FBI spokesperson Kristen Setera.
The raid in Westport wasn’t the only one. The FBI is trying to keep their probes a secret, but the Lynn Hells Angels clubhouse was also invaded by FBI agents.
Local and state police have been assisting with the raids.
Residents in Westport said the clubhouse is new to the area and is a little out of place in the neighborhood, but they essentially keep to themselves.
Nearby resident, Paul Mann, said that they are only have a sign. He said that there have never been any motorbikes around. “I truly don’t know anything else,” he said.
The motorcycle club is open about where it is in Westport. At the end of a road leading to the club, a big white, red, and gold sign reading “Hell’s Angels MC Cape Cod” is posted alongside American Legion Highway.
In a large battle that took place on Pleasant Street in the middle of the day on May 14, seven bikers were stabbed. According to reports, Hell’s Angels members invaded the Pagans biker gang’s headquarters at 375 Pleasant St. According to the police, the brawl involved roughly 50 motorcyclists.
The South Coast region has lately seen a number of motorcycle-related incidents, including a 50-person riot in Fall River in May.
Although it’s unknown if Hells Angels members were there, Fall River police are currently looking into the event to determine the full circumstances.
