Warlock Motorcycle Gang Member Sentenced To 11 Years In Prison

Philadelphia – Andrew Carr, 60, of Upper Darby, PA, was sentenced today by United States District Court Judge Eduardo C. Robreno to 132 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. He worked as the “muscle” for a methamphetamine trafficking business, intimidating and threatening violence to collect drug debts. Carr was a member of the Chester (city) Chapter of the Warlocks outlaw motorcycle gang and wore his Warlocks jacket while collecting for the business, which sold approximately $40,000 of methamphetamine monthly in Philadelphia and Delaware County. Carr also sold methamphetamine to his own customers.

Carr was the director of the Upper Darby Township Recreational Gym for over 12 years until he was terminated in 2013. While the director, he was responsible for the Police Athletic League (PAL) programs at the gym. He was convicted following a jury trial in May 2016.

As a result of the investigation, eight members or associates of the drug trafficking business have been convicted, and six of them have been sentenced.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations with assistance from detectives of the Delaware County Criminal Investigative Division and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Maria M. Carrillo.
