FBI agents searched a motorcycle gang clubhouse in Sandusky early Wednesday morning. The Outlaws clubhouse is on DeWitt avenue right across from the Ohio Veterans Home.

At this point the FBI is not saying much about what happened. We can tell you agents served a search warrant, but it is not clear what they were looking for. Other law enforcement agencies were on the scene, but they are reportedly not involved in the investigation.

According to an FBI spokeswoman, the court documents from the case have been sealed and there is no word when those records will be unsealed. She also said that no arrests were made in Sandusky today and there were no other search warrants served at motorcycle gang clubhouses in Northern Ohio today. However, there is no word if any search warrants were served elsewhere. 

According to the Outlaws website, they are the largest motorcycle clubs in the world with six chapters here in Ohio including Toledo, Sandusky and Findlay. The ATF, FBI and the US Attorney Generals Office have been targeting motorcycle clubs for a number of years. Just last month the FBI raided an Outlaws club in Palm Springs, Florida. Last year, there were raids simultaneously around the country, including one in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
