Two leaders of a Hells Angels motorcycle club in Southern Maryland were indicted yesterday on federal drug and gun charges stemming from a multistate, undercover investigation by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
John A. Beal, 38, of Dunkirk and Lewis J. Hall, 34, of Owings were president and vice president of the North Beach chapter of the biker club. Hall's wife, Tracey E. Hall, 42, and club member Cornelius W. Alexander, 32, of Waldorf were charged with possessing firearms as convicted felons in yesterday's indictment in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.
Federal agents searched the Hells Angel's clubhouse in Owings, and the defendants' residences and vehicles, and found 17 firearms, more than 270 rounds of ammunition, methamphetamine and a bulletproof vest last week.
