Officials search buildings linked to Warlocks

By Joe Beck - jbeck@nvdaily.com

Dozens of law enforcement officers from Shenandoah and Frederick counties and the Virginia State Police descended on four buildings in the two counties early Thursday morning to execute search warrants linked to members of the Warlocks motorcycle gang.

A news release from the Northwest Virginia Regional Gang Task Force identified the locations where the search warrants were executed as 64 Mountain Road, Strasburg; 1448 Macedonia Church Road, Stephens City; 400 Hites Road, Stephens City; 319 Stickley Drive, Stephens City.

Law enforcement officials refused to offer any details about the reasons for the search warrants.

Capt. Allen Sibert of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office said no arrests have been made, but an investigation is continuing. Sibert said 25 law enforcement officers participated in Thursday's operation.

The news release said the search warrants "were related to members and associates of the Warlock motorcycle gang and their involvement in an incident that took place in Frederick County."

Major Scott Proctor of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office said the search warrant in Strasburg was executed at 6:11 a.m. Proctor said several items were seized from the residence, but declined to say what they were. Sibert said the warrants were executed between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.

The search warrants were executed by members of Northwest Virginia Regional Gang Task Force and emergency or special response teams from the state police, Frederick County and Shenandoah County.

The Warlocks have maintained a presence in the northern Shenandoah Valley for several years. In 2003, dozens of members of the biker gang were arrested on weapons and drug charges in raids conducted in six states stemming from an investigation begun in Shenandoah County.

The president of the Warren County Warlocks said in a 2010 interview that the gang had reformed itself since the 2003 arrests and its members were no longer committing crimes.

I saw these guys in action. No one touched or would ever want to touch that ugly biker grandmother's rear end. It looked to me like they were just trying to earn their "I'm a tough biker" merit badge so they can get into club Warlock some day.
