“The presence of Outlaw Motorcycle gangs in any community should be a concern. Citizens should minimize contact with gang members and report any [Outlaw Motorcycle Club] activity to police in their jurisdiction,” said a Brockville police news release.

All three were jointly charged with kidnapping, robbery, assault with a weapon, assault, and two separate offences relating to organized crime.

Police say those offences began in March 2018.
