I grew up in Billerica in the 70s-80s, lived at the lake. I know of some of the shady dealings and people in Billerica back then especially from living at the lake with all those bikers and druggies. Ive moved to Chicago since then, but what I was wondering are these people still hanging around. I know Boston area gang members used to frequent this area and some even struck up residences. Anyone have any other info on this just out of sheer curiosity?

Abstract (Document Summary)

Investigators observed a meeting in March among [Flynn],[Robert DeLuca] and Salemme at the Rockingham Park Racetrack in Salem, N.H., providing authorities with evidence of Salemme's control over the New England Mob in the wake of disarray in the crime syndicate caused by recent federal prosecutions.

The bulk of the Flynn investigation involved tailing and eavesdropping on conversations among Flynn and his associates, including the second-in-command, Albert "Poncho" Gonsalves, of Lowell, and the organization's lieutenants, Norman "Blacky" McKay Sr., 55, and his brother, Frederick McKay, 56, and Thomas McGarry, 56, all of Billerica.

Headquarters for Flynn's organization was Macs II, a Billerica bar reportedly owned by Norman McKay and McGarry as well as two other bars they operated, Lakeside Lounge and the Blue Moon.

There ya go...

ALL OF YOU can stop talking. Blackie was my grandfather, and he may have done some bad things but he had a great heart. Unless you came into personal contact the only thing you know of him is probably bad. He was loved and hated, but in the end he was a great person, and even to this day he is missed, regardless of the things he has done. To answer the original question, drugs have become worse and worse in Billerica, not just at the lake but throughout the entire town.

And for the most part, only Hells Angels (now The Red Devils) are the only real gang to inhabit Billerica. Kids like to claim they are in them, but in reality they are not. Most gangs have been in surrounding places, usually cities such as Lowell, where there are numerous gangs.

Are you retarded? Hells Angels did not turn into the Red Devils moron, they are a feeder club and support club for them.
