Members of the department's gang unit arrested Aaron McIntosh on suspicion of riding a motorcycle that was stolen using threat of force. McIntosh was arrested and booked for robbery and street terrorism.

Through that arrest, evidence led to further arrests, including alleged Hells Angels member Joe Cerezo.

A search warrant was later served at an alleged clubhouse. Alleged members James Ivans, Joseph Zeidler and Sonya Joshua were arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of methamphetamines, and Joshua allegedly had possession of the drug.
