VENTURA (AP) — California gang unit detectives investigating firearms thefts have arrested five Hells Angels members during a raid on the biker gang’s Ventura clubhouse.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says the Friday raid came after a three-week investigation into the theft of a gun safe from an Ojai home. Evidence led to a search warrant for the Hells Angels clubhouse and gang investigators arrived during a club meeting.

Five motorcycle gang members were arrested and booked for investigation of being under the influence of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana for sale or possession of a deadly weapon.

Among those arrested on methamphetamine allegations was 35-year-old George Christie III, the son of the longtime Hells Angels leader.

    You really think they would keep stolen firearms in the first place that would be checked, the clubhouse ?? I heard Mr.Christie’s daughter is a good attorney too.
