Authorities Warn of Increased Biker Gang Activity in Florida

Authorities say they are seeing an increase in biker gang activity in Florida as the OMGs try to maintain dominance over each other, especially in South Florida. The FBI sent out a memo warning law enforcement to expect an uptick in biker gang activity in South Florida, particularly in the Florida Keys. The four main biker gangs aiming for dominance in South Florida are the Outlaws, the Hells Angels, the Pagans and the Pistons. The Outlaws in particular are trying to take more control, but all 4 clubs are increasing activities.
Florida's biker gangs have claimed various parts of the state, with the Outlaws being the dominant club, especially in South Florida. In South Florida, the Dirty White Boys have a clubhouse in Davie, and the Black Pistons have one in Riviera Beach. Central Florida is home to the Warlocks, and the Pagans have a chapter north of Tampa. The Los Angeles-based The Mongols also have been known to operate in the Tampa area. Last month, an Outlaws member was fatally stabbed in a Daytona Beach, Florida bar. Authorities believe the man's killer belongs to the Pagan Motorcycle Club.
