SAN BERNARDINO (CBS) — Authorities on Friday are searching for an Inland Empire man they say is leading a double-life: a Cal State San Bernardino professor by day and motorcycle-riding methamphetamine dealer by night who is now wanted on drug charges.

Steve Kinzey, 45, has been on the lam for a week following an undercover operation that busted a suspected methamphetamine drug ring.

Deputies arrested 9 people in connection to the raid.

Kinzey, of Highland, worked as an associate professor of kinesiology at Cal Sate.

“We’re shocked,” said one of Kinzey’s neighbors. “The whole neighborhood’s shocked.”

“He is believed to be the main suspect in this trafficking ring,” said Deputy Cindy Bachman of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Dept.

In addition to his role in the drug ring, Kinzey is reportedly also the president of the “Devil’s Disciples” outlaw motorcycle gang.

Investigators said Kinzey was not home during a raid on his residence last Friday, but agents found up to one pound of methamphetamine with a street value of up to $12,000.

Guns and motorcycle gang paraphenalia were also found in the home that Kinzey has reportedly lived in for the past 12 years.

Neighbors who said they haven’t seen Kinzey in some time are still reeling from the discovery.

“He seemed like a nice guy,” one woman said. “His lawn is impeccable.”

    1. Mo says:

      Barbi- Sam was correcting the article which spelled the club’s name “Disciples”, not the correct name of “Diciples”.

    The funniest line ever!

  7. James says:

    No wonder his lawn is impeccable — he probably uses all of the meth byproducts to kill the weeds, and he stays up all night taking care of his lawn. I’d bet his bathroom is spotless as well. 🙂

  8. Travis Mogren says:

    He seemed like a nice guy, his lawn is impeccable..

    Yea…. cause he’s up all night, he is probably out there with a ruler and toe nail clippers to ensure that all the blades of grass are exactly the same length..

  10. Michael J. McDermott says:

    It’s all sooo hilarious! You guys don’t have anything better to do than to make a joke out of something so serious? Don’t you think that the family members of these people are following the story and you making a joke out of it may be upsetting? This man was not manufacturing, he was buying large quantities and splitting it up to other dealers. One of those 9 other people that were arrested was my sister, it’s not a joke, other peoples poor choices has affected myself and my family in a very negative way. It’s nice you guys are getting a good laugh out of all this… think before you speak… or should I say type.
