Three former members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, one of whom was president of the Las Vegas chapter, are facing federal drug charges.
Two of the men were also charged with further drug or firearm crimes.
According to United States Attorney for the District of Nevada Daniel G. Bogden, 41-year-old Keith Hare, 32-year-old Miguel Macias and 44-year-old Paul Seifert were indicted Nov. 1 and arrested without incident the following day.
All three are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine. Seifert is further charged in a separate incident with the sale of a shotgun to a person who had previously been convicted of a felony and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
The indictment stems from an incident in 2008 in which the defendants allegedly met with an undercover ATF agent and agreed to provide security during a cocaine purchase. Seifert told the agent he was president of the local Hells Angels chapter.
If convicted, the three face a minimum of 10 years in prison and a $10 million fine.
