Spokane law enforcement raid Hells Angels Clubhouse on East Sprague
SPOKANE, Wash – Spokane Police and federal agents conducted a raid Thursday morning on the Hells Angels Clubhouse in the 1300 block of East Sprague.
There were no injuries during the raid.
Spokane Police say no other information is available to prevent the investigation from being compromised.
East Sprague was blocked from Perry Street to a few blocks west of the clubhouse for several hours.
The front door and front windows of the clubhouse were smashed. The entire area was completely boarded up and repaired by Thursday afternoon.
A few Hells Angels members spoke with us shortly after the raid happened. They said they were served a search warrant, but that it was “all bogus.”
This motorcycle club has a history of run-ins with law enforcement in Spokane. In 2011, one person was arrested during a raid in which they uncovered half a dozen loaded weapons, and marijuana.
A prominent member, Rick Jenks, was later charged as a felon possessing a firearm. Back in 2001, he was also convicted of 2nd-degree manslaughter.
We also reported on a shooting outside of Hells Angels back in 2015.
This is a developing story. We’ll update with more information as we get it.
