A Holicong man has been indicted on federal drug charges that he ran a methamphetamine lab on his Bucks County property with a missing and feared dead former Philadelphia policeman - whose severed left arm was found in a Trenton trash bin in 1998.

It was a mansion built on a fortune made from paper, primarily shirt collars, once sold in department stores for 10 cents a dozen. Today, the towering blue limestone-and-marble mansion known as Loch Aerie has become an East Whiteland landmark, perhaps because its Gothic architecture looks out of place along the commercial and industrial landscape of the Exton Bypass and Route 202.

Montgomery County jurors couldn't seem to decide whether to take the word of a bearded Warlock or that of a clean-cut Pennsylvania state trooper. So last night, they split the difference and found Philipe David Scheurer guilty of stalking and reckless endangerment for a May 3 incident in which Scheurer, a member of the Philadelphia motorcycle gang, chased the off-duty trooper at speeds of up to 80 m.p.h. along 14 miles of Montgomery County roads.

Here's an outlaw biker code of the road, straight from a Warlocks motorcycle gang member who experienced a nasty road rage clash in Montgomery County on Sunday: Should you ever find yourself facing an 80-member pack of Warlocks on a "run," don't butt into the middle of the "pack. " A motorist did that on Route 422 near Limerick, and a Warlocks member ended up being arrested for ethnic intimidation, stalking and assault. Days later, the Warlocks are still seething, saying that the motorist is really to blame and that the cops wouldn't listen to the real story.
