(CBS 5) SANTA ROSA

The leader of the Santa Rosa Hells Angels motorcycle club chapter turned himself into the FBI Tuesday and was placed under arrest for suspicion of drug possession and distribution, officials said.

Federal agents had been searching for 42-year-old Raymond Foakes since last week when law enforcement officers raided six locations around Santa Rosa, including the Hells Angels headquarters there, as part of an ongoing drug probe.

Foakes was previously arrested in 2003 in connection with a violent confrontation between members of the Hells Angels and Mongols motorcycle club at Harrah's Casino in Laughlin, Nevada in 2002.

He was one of 42 Hells Angels members indicted in the United States District Court in Las Vegas on federal racketeering and firearms charges.

Up until Tuesday's arrest, Foakes had been free on bond pending a September trial on the Nevada charges.
