Arrested: Christian bike gang members
August 6, 2008
ANAHEIM, Calif. ” SWAT teams have raided several Orange and Riverside county homes to arrest members of a Christian motorcycle gang in connection with several stabbings.
Anaheim police Sgt. Tim Schmdit says eight members of the “Set Free Soldiers” gang were taken into custody early Wednesday for investigation of attempted murder.
No injuries were reported.
Police served 11 search warrants in Anaheim, Costa Mesa and Rancho Santa Margarita in Orange County and Norco in Riverside County.
Schmidt says the raids were prompted by a fight in a Newport Beach bar last week between members of the bike gang and the Hell’s Angels. Three people were stabbed in that confrontation.
