Newest HAMC chapter in Oz homeless, again

One of the Hells Angels newest chapters is homeless after being evicted from its third clubhouse - and police are warning possible future landlords to do their homework. The Darkside chapter, based on the Mornington Peninsula at Seaford, opened with significant fanfare in 2013, but has since been shunted from industrial estate to industrial estate.

Landlords, with the support of police, have evicted the club three times in the past 18 months.
The chapter had been viewed as strategically important to the gang. It was near a Bandidos chapter.

Melbourne's south-east and the peninsula were also being eyed by the Rock Machine - the Hells Angels' most bitter international rival - and the Comancheros also had a presence in the area.

It has not been a good year for the Darkside chapter. In January, the chapter president Mohammad Khodr was jailed for seven-and-a-half years for selling more than $220,000 worth of the drug ice to undercover police.
