SWAT officers from the FBI and ATF were carrying more than acronyms and heavy weapons when they stormed the Northside headquarters of the Outlaws Chicago Motorcycle club. They also brought cameras to take pictures of the evidence.

During a bond hearing U.S. District Court in Chicago, federal prosecutors described some of the items that were recovered in the Division St. "clubhouse" used by the Outlaws. Asst. U.S. Attorney T. Markus Funk argued that the weaponry, including a live grenade and a bulletproof vest were among the reasons that two men arrested in connection with the raids should not be released on bond.
