5 Hells Angels Arrested On Drug Charges After Ventura Raid

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.
