Word on the Street: Warlocks MC Invade Greenville!
The Warlocks MC is here on a national run according to my sources, and they may have about 400 members from around the country and some international members. They have five chapters in South Carolina but not in Greenville which is, to my understanding, Hells Angels territory.
I’m told that the Drury Inn near Woodruff is housing a bunch of them and that an influx of “new” white escorts into the area is related to their arrival. In 2005 during the Philadelphia Pagans/Hells Angels war the Warlocks stayed out of the fighting but allied with the Pagans for business deals. Whether the Angels care about the Warlocks probably has to do more with how quickly they plan on leaving than what they get up to here. Still, I would suggest avoiding anywhere Warlocks are in case bullets begin to fly. The Warlocks are about making money though – so don’t look for them to really start much trouble.
The Warlocks are not known to be the most violent of the 1%er gangs (at least when it comes to dealing with non-bikers) but they are known to manufacture meth. Worse they are also known for using meth. If a couple of hundred gang members who might be tweeking doesn’t scare you you’re brain dead.
Some people are saying this run is a slap in the face to the HA but I tend to think the Warlocks are probably just testing the waters and I doubt they want to go to war here. More than likely they have the blessing of the Angels as long as they’re passing through.
This weekend might be a good time to stay indoors and spend time with the family, however.
