Items found in the residence included firearms, weapons, controlled substances and vests belonging to “Dead Eyes MC” which police described as “a support club to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.” Police also seized a vest belonging to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.
Kyle Justin Thomas Gard, 23, and Adam James Sayeau, 27, both of Brockville, were held for a bail hearing scheduled for Friday, while four other people remained at large as of Friday afternoon.
Police said arrest warrants have been issued for Joshua Leonardo Dominguez, 36, of Ottawa; Allan Michael Eldon Neal, 24, of Brockville; Brooklyn Ann Lachappelle, 18, of Brockville; and Sarah Melissa Buttle, 25, also of Brockville.
All are jointly charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance; possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm; unauthorized possession of a prohibited device; knowledge of unauthorized possession of a firearm; possession of a firearm obtained by crime; careless storage of a firearm; and possession of property obtained by crime.
Gard is also charged with failing to abide by conditions of an undertaking, while Dominguez faces a charge of failing to abide by conditions of a weapons prohibitions order.
The raid comes amid widespread fears in Brockville of youth criminal gang activity in the city.
On the eve of the Sevenoaks raid, Police Chief Scott Fraser, speaking at a neighbourhood watch meeting, drew a distinction between the alleged youth gang and motorcycle clubs.
The chief said that, while there is no evidence of an actual youth gang operating in Brockville, biker clubs such as the Outlaws have been operating here.
