Motorcycle Club Temporarily Leaves Property

Officials say a motorcycle club has temporarily vacated a property in Wilmington that the Attorney General's office says is a criminal nuisance.

Attorney General Beau Biden and Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams said in a press release that the Thunderguards Motorcycle Club agreed to leave property on Northeast Boulevard.

Biden says the property was closed on Wednesday. He says it will remain closed until a hearing to determine its permanent status is held.

Biden had claimed in a lawsuit last month that the site is the national clubhouse for the Thunderguards. The suit alleges that an adjacent parking lot and nearby storage units are used for criminal activity.

Wilmington officials say five homicides and several shootings have occurred on the property since 2006.
