PORTLAND – Police raided three locations linked to an outlaw motorcycle gang called the Gypsy Jokers as part of an ongoing firearms investigation Thursday.

Search warrants were served at 11818 Northeast Holladay Street, 2907 Southeast 90th Avenue and 3075 Northwest Front Avenue.

“At the Holladay address, investigators seized approximately three ounces of methamphetamine. Evidence of firearm possession was located but no guns were seized during these warrants,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau.

Last Friday, Salem police shot and killed a woman known to be associated with the Gypsy Jokers. Jacklynn Rashaun Ford, 25, was shot and killed after she ran from a traffic stop near the intersection of Watson Avenue Northeast, near Alameda Street, police said.

Ford had past convictions for burglary, menacing, theft and gun possession. Her shooting remains under investigation and Portland police have not said whether the raids were in any way connected to her case.

Simpson said details about Thursday’s raid will be forwarded to the U.S. Attorney's Office for possible federal prosecution.

Brian Steven Graham, 46, was arrested for a parole violation during one of the raids.
