San Francisco FBI Indicts Hells Angels Gang Members on Racketeering Charges

FBI agents have served a warrant at the Hells Angels motorcycle club in Fresno

Federal prosecutors in San Francisco have charged eleven members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang with running a criminal organization responsible for multiple robberies and assaults and one murder. Nelson ordered an unnamed murder victim to meet members of the Hells Angels at the Fresno Hells Angels clubhouse in 2014, where he was killed, prosecutors say.

Brian Wayne Wendt, a 40-year-old Tulare man, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and racketeering, according to the indictment.

The indictment describes the Hells Angels as a violent, transnational outlaw motorcycle gang, and the Hells Angels Sonoma County chapter as a subset of the gang whose members primarily operate in that Northern California county.

According to the complaint, members of the Hells Angels Sonoma chapter committed acts of violence to maintain and enhance membership and discipline within the gang, including against its own members.

"This investigation has uncovered significant criminal activity and it's not over yet", said Jack Bennett, FBI special agent in charge during a press conference Monday.

The FBI investigated the case with help from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department, the Santa Rosa Police Department and the California Highway Patrol. Law enforcement agencies and worldwide intelligence agencies contend the gangs routinely carry out violent crime and drug dealing, trafficking in stolen goods, extortion and prostitution.
