October 11, 2019 — The Outlaws Motorcycle Club is in the midst of an expansion effort in New England, according to an internal federal law enforcement memo circulated back in the summer obtained by Gangster Report. With the opening of a new handful of chapters across the region in recent years, the Outlaws have moved to beef up their presence in an area known for being Hells Angels territory. Per the memo, the Outlaws’ 12 current New England chapters equals the Hells Angels total.

Joseph (Little Jo Jo) Noe, Jr. of the Outlaws Fall River, Massachusetts chapter was slapped with a murder charge last month for the fatal shooting of a rival biker club member outside a local bar. Little Jo Jo’s dad, Joseph (Joe Dogs) Noe, Sr., led the Outlaws Taunton, Massachusetts chapter in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Joe Dogs, 45, was nailed in 2007’s Operation Roadkill on drugs, weapons and racketeering charges and did nine years in prison.

The Fall River chapter is one of five new chapters for the Outlaws in New England (three in Massachusetts, one in Rhode Island and one in Vermont). Placing the clubhouses in factory town Fall River, summer-vacation staple Cape Cod and working class Plainville, the Outlaws intend to envelop the entire Southeastern Massachusetts coastline according to the internal memo.

The 25-year old Noe, Jr. allegedly shot Sidewinders MC member Eric Voshell on September 13 after he was converged on in the parking lot of J.C.’s Cafe by Voshell and others Sidewinders clubbers. Noe, Jr. has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bond.

The Sidewinders are known as a “support” club of the Hells Angels. Tensions between the Outlaws and the Sidewinders have been boiling all year, according to local media reports, with the murder of Voshell the third incident in 2019 where police have been called in response to brawling and heated verbal altercations between the two groups.

Voshell was 39. J.C.’s Cafe is known as a Sidewinders hangout. On the night of Voshell’s murder, Noe, Jr. and several other Outlaws were booted from the establishment.

The Outlaws and Hells Angels have been at war since 1974 when three Massachusetts Hells Angels were executed in a Florida gravel pit as revenge for an attack on an Outlaw in New York months earlier. While the Outlaws are based out of the Midwest, the Hells Angels headquarter out of California.

The Pagan’s MC, founded in Maryland and most formidable in Pennsylvania and New York, is also at war with the Hells Angels and in the process of pushing further up the east coast and into New England, per court records. Upon Pagan’s president Keith (Conan the Barbarian) Richter taking power in 2015, he began patching over smaller clubs to increase numbers in the region and reportedly encouraging violence against Hells Angels in non-Pagan strongholds like Newark and Providence. Richter rose through the ranks of the Pagan’s as boss of the club’s Long Island, New York chapter.
