The South East Minnesota Narcotics and Gang Task Force is requesting information on Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMG) activity that may have an impact on this year’s Fall Flood Run. The Flood Run (www.floodrun.org) is a charitable motorcycle run that takes place both in the spring and fall along the St. Croix River and attracts thousands of riders, the majority of which are law-abiding. However, information has been received that this year’s Flood Run on September 18, 2010, is expected to attract an increased number of Hells Angels and Outlaws gang members, which are rival clubs. Both clubs are known to be involved in criminal activities such as assault, narcotics, money laundering, prostitution and thefts and both are also considered to be “at war” with each other.
