A surprising discovery of the police in a warehouse north of the island of Montreal on Saturday suggests a return to Quebec of the Rock Machine, the sworn enemies of the Hells Angels against which they fought a war that has killed 160 between 1994 and 2002.
The Journal has learned that the Quebec provincial police seized three jackets bearing the image of the Rock Machine - called "patches" or "colors", in the jargon of the police - and for members of the motorcycle gang, inside of a warehouse Balmoral Street, in the borough of Saint-Laurent.
The Rock Machine are yet disappeared from the province for more than ten years, although Canadian members exhibited their colors a few times in bars of downtown Montreal, in 2011 and 2012.

SQ refused to confirm our information or elaborate on the meaning of this unexpected discovery yesterday. Sergeant Anne Mathieu said that the search was conducted from an investigation for threats in a commercial dispute.
"The complainant filed a complaint in mid-March. He had to invest thousands of dollars in a project with a man of Laval but that did not materialize as planned. The suspect allegedly tried to obtain money under threat and with the help of intermediaries, "recounted the spokesman for the SQ.
Saturday, officers from the SQ Regional Investigation Division arrested Yan Seguin, 25, of Montreal West, in this case. Still detained, he appeared to face a charge of threats yesterday.
An arrest warrant has also been issued to the place of Joseph Fluet, 42, of Laval, to answer the same charge.
Most tenors of the Rock Machine have joined the Hells Angels after the bloody war between the two gangs.
Salvatore Cazzetta, one of the founders of the Rock Machine in 1985, Paul "Sasquatch" Porter, who then led the Nomads chapter of the Hells in Ontario and Jean Judes Faucher were the lot.
The latter's brother, Frédéric Faucher, serving 23 years in prison for having ordered the hired killer Gérald Gallant for the killings of a dozen allies of the Hells Angels.
Their followers had been arrested and sentenced to long terms in the margins of the police operation Amigo, conducted in 2002 by the SQ.
Nevertheless, the biker assured a presence in Ontario - where six of its members were killed in an internal purge in 2007 - and Manitoba, where the RCMP has dealt him a blow it a year ago, when Dilemma of the drug operation with the arrest of 11 bikers.
