Three members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang were arrested Thursday evening on weapons charges after a traffic stop in central Fresno, police reported.
Sgt. Brian Valles said officers from the Violent Crime Impact Team pulled over a car driven by Charles Dilks, 26, of Fresno for a traffic violation at Fresno and McKinley avenues. Dilks did not have a driver’s license and dropped a knife when he was asked to step out of the car.
Valles said the other occupants of the car were Masan Baran, 26, and Arthur Carasis, 60, both of Fresno. Police spotted a handgun on the floor of the car, which prompted a further search that yielded four loaded handguns and a shotgun. Another shotgun was discovered after police obtained a warrant to search Baran’s residence.
The three were booked on weapons violations.
