FBI raids Hells Angels Bay Area chapters


The San Francisco chapter of the Hells Angels clubhouse was completely surrounded by police and the FBI when the raids began at 5:00 am Wednesday morning. There were three simultaneous raids - in San Francisco, Healdsburg and Santa Rosa.

In San Francisco, they brought in a Uhaul truck so authorities could store items from the clubhouse. Petaluma police say they are gathering evidence regarding several assaults that took place at a restaurant in Petaluma in February and March. Police wouldn't release many details regarding those assaults other then some people were beat up pretty badly.

One person was arrested in San Francisco, but it was unrelated to the assault case. Those suspected of being in the assault case have already been arrested, arraigned and are out on bail. Petaluma police would not say if those arrested in the assault case were associated with the Hells Angels, but now their main motive is to gather evidence.
