GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL – The RCMP has issued a warning to the public to be aware members of ‘one percent’ outlaw motorcycle gangs will be in Newfoundland this weekend.

That includes the Bacchus MC, the Outlaws, and their support clubs, a news release from the RCMP stated on Friday afternoon.

Gang members will be gathering in Grand Falls-Windsor and will also participate in motorcycle runs in central and eastern Newfoundland, the news release noted.

A joint police presence from the RCMP and RNC will be in Grand Falls-Windsor throughout the weekend, engaging with members of the Outlaws MC and Bacchus MC and monitoring their activity.

According to information provided by the RCMP, outlaw motorcycle gangs use a ‘one percent’ patch to identify the wearer as a person who does not follow the law or society’s rules.

Gangs often have a logo and ‘colors’, a uniform that identifies members. It usually includes a leather vest with the club logo on the back along with other patches and pins on the front.

It is important to remember that 99 per cent of motorcycle riders across Canada are law-abiding residents who are not associated with outlaw motorcycle gangs, the release stated.
