LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A judge ordered the Las Vegas chapter leader of the Hells Angels to be taken into custody Monday on upgraded charges of racketeering and other offenses connected to the shooting of six people on a Las Vegas-area highway.
Richard Devries, 67, had already posted $75,000 bail in June connected to the May shooting on U.S. 95. Judge Tierra Jones ordered Devries held on $250,000 in court Monday on new charges connected to a superseding indictment filed Sept. 23.
As the 8 News Now Investigators first reported last week, seven of eight Hells Angels members or affiliates face more than 30 charges of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, further or assisting a criminal gang, battery and racketeering charges, among others, documents revealed.
Devries, and gang prospects, Stephen Alo, 46, and Russell Smith, 26, already faced charges, including attempted murder, for the Memorial Day weekend shooting that shut down the major freeway outside of Las Vegas. The area is also marked as Interstate 11.
