December 27, 2021 — Florida Outlaws Motorcycle Club power Preston (The Gorilla) Perry pushed a philanthropy campaign throughout the northern part of the state, collecting hundreds of coats for the homeless and almost $2,500 to foot the bill for three down-on-their luck families to have holiday feasts on Christmas Day.
“Gorilla” Perry did an interview with the Pensacola News-Journal about his club’s charity work. Some of the philanthropy was done in the Navarre area where the Outlaws have recently opened up a new chapter. Navarre is in Santa Rosa County in Northwest Florida, 25 miles east of Pensacola. Perry is a member of the club’s Pensacola faction, known as the “Gulf Coast” chapter. He owns Gulf Coast Choppers. More than a dozen Outlaws chapters and support clubs across North Florida participated in the good-deed effort Perry organized.
The Outlaws MC have long maintained a strangle hold on biker gang affairs in the state of Florida. The club was founded and is traditionally based out of the Midwest, but recent reports places leadership in the gang today residing in Western New York. FBI and DEA documents related to a mafia-connected narcotics and bribery investigation name Buffalo Outlaws boss John (Tommy O) Ermin the new boss of the Outlaws and ties him to the Magaddino crime family by way of his job as head of security for a local strip club owned by the alleged Buffalo mob don’s nephew.
