Outlaws motorcycle club member from Baltimore faces federal drug charges
It's not clear how closely the popular FX show Sons of Anarchy resembles a real club like the Outlaws MC. But one club member from Baltimore, as Van Smith reports for the City Paper, was recently the subject of federal charges involving a methamphetamine deal gone wrong.
Two pounds of meth wasn't getting paid for and the 42-year-old club member from Baltimore made calls into the Philadelphia chapter about it, which included plenty of threats.
The only problem was the recipient of the threats was an undercover FBI agent who had infiltrated the MC. Because the undercover agent began receiving death threats, the FBI decided to make a move and arrest the Baltimore man.
Now he faces federal drug charges.
As Smith reports, the FBI built a "drugs-and-guns" case against various chapters of the Outlaws, which is a storyline similar to that in Sons of Anarchy. Only in this case, it's not fiction, and the 42-year-old man from Baltimore faces significant time behind bars if he is convicted.
