“The presence of outlaw motorcycle gang paraphernalia and clothing during the commission of an offence is used as a weapon of intimidation and reinforces the connection between outlaw motorcycle gangs and criminality,” said RCMP Insp. Jason Popik in a news release.

“Based on the investigation to date, the individuals were wearing their gang colours as a means to send a message and inspire fear in the victims which is why we seized them.”

A 37-year-old man from Upper Musquodoboit, a 38-year-old man from Eastern Passage, a 43-year-old man from Dartmouth and a 46-year-old man from Cow Bay have all been charged with uttering threats and criminal harassment. They were released on conditions and will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Nov. 20.
