The Warlocks Motorcycle Club was founded in 1967 in Florida, USA by ex-US naval servicemen serving on the USS Shangri-La aircraft carrier. It is a "One Percenter motorcycle club" with chapters in various parts of the United States, Canada, UK and Germany. Established by Tom "Grub" Freeland,[1] an ex-US Navy sailor, in Orlando, Florida in 1967, its Mother Chapter is still based there. They have over nine chapters in Florida, two in Georgia, seven in South Carolina, five in Virginia, four in West Virginia, one in New York, two in Ohio, one in Minnesota, three in England, two in Germany and three in Canada. There are also several Nomads who live and work in states that don't have Warlocks chapters.

The club's insignia is a blazing phoenix between a top and bottom rocker, their patch colors are crimson red, gold and orange. mottos include "Our Business is None of Your Fucking Business" and "Warlocks forever, forever Warlocks" ("W.F.F.W.").[2]

Criminal activities[edit]

The Warlocks were investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in 1991, after Steve Martin, an undercover agent, infiltrated the club, and several members were arrested and released. Again, in 2003 the ATF investigated the Warlocks, and convicted several members of drug and weapon charges once more.[3]

Several members and associates were arrested in a small Alberta, Canada town in March 2014 on weapons charges.[4]
