Frisco Angels Raided

May 14, 2014

All Posts, News

There was another intelligence gathering raid on a Hells Angels clubhouse in the darkest hour before dawn today. This time it was the Frisco charter clubhouse located in a residential island mostly surrounded by industrial properties in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street near Tubbs Street.

The Frisco charter was founded in 1954 and is the second oldest in the club. It has been the object of numerous police searches in the last 15 years. Some of those searches have seemed to indicate that some San Francisco Hells Angels consume and enjoy illegal recreational drugs. So, naturally, today’s enforcement action at about 5 a.m. featured a drug sniffing dog and a Swat team.


The putative point of the raid was to locate and arrest Charles Nucci, 32, who police accuse of participating in an aggravated assault five months ago. Nucci was in custody by 5:05 a.m. but police lingered at the club house until 8:15, presumably enjoying the Frisco Angels world famous coffee. Helicopter footage broadcast on local television showed police carrying boxes of either club records or San Francisco treats from the location.

As of 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time, Nucci had been booked into custody but had not yet made his initial appearance before a judge.

San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr told television station KCBS that the whole point of the raid was to arrest Nucci and that it was carried out solely by the San Francisco Police Department’s Gang Task Force without the support or collaboration of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration or the Department of Homeland Security. KCBS did not ask Suhr when or if those federal agencies might be informed of the raid. According to published sources, police did say that an “investigation is active and ongoing.”

Chronicle’s Angle

Henry K. Lee of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that neighbors of the club were puzzled by the early morning raid.

A man identified by the Chronicle as L. Perry complained about the repeated raids. “To me, it seems like a lot of police manpower wasted,” Perry said. “We see these raids, but we never hear about any results.” Perry also said the Angels were good neighbors. “I don’t really see anything wrong with what they’re doing down there. They shifted their entrance so they don’t have to come down the residential part of the street, and I appreciate that. They really haven’t been a problem,” he said.

Another neighbor named Stacia Wymen said, “I hear their bikes, but I’ve never seen anybody even hanging out in front. There’s an urban legend in the neighborhood that they keep it clean there. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I’ve never heard any wild parties or even seen anyone coming or going.”

    Thanks for comments Rusty.

    As I said I am getting mixed messages for being establishing an RC. I’m not trying to rush anybody and didn’t mean to imply that.

    From my resarch, I guess some RC type clubs say you have to introduce yourself to dominate MC or you’re starting on the wrong foot even as an RC and another says do your own thing and they’ll let you know if they have a problem with you when they run into you on the road.

    Personally, I just thought it would be better to introduce myself even though we have nothing to do with the 1% world beside wanting to wear a patch on our backs to make a statement.

    I’m not trying to push anybody. I guess it’s do your own thing and be ignored which is fine, or be corrected for doing something disagreeable.

    Thanks again

    Oh and thanks to Rolinnorth for Manchester Motorcycle club info -I’ve sent them an email also.

    Oh, I did post a personal phone number and email if anyone wants more info on RC club from Maine or New Hampshire, helpful feedback or anything else.

    Thanks all

    Sir, if you have done as you say and talked to as many as you say, you should sit back and cool your heels for a bit. Show some respect to the people you have talked to, by taking advice they surely gave you.
    You may just find that the harder you push the longer you may wait, to get an answer you don’t want.
    No MC, 1% or not, is going to be on your schedule or time table.

  6. Jin Dixon Says:

    You are right. Sending a package would be suspect. I didn’t consider the facts you brought up. And yes, it is a neutral color scheme harmless club. Because the club graphic is in the shape of the states of Maine and NH, it has a second type rocker on top with an mrc.

    I’ve spoken to a maine masons club that runs a 3 piece patch with a separate 4 th patch (they suggested the letter to request a meet)and they are OK in lower Maine AOA territory. I have spoken to an RC club in Vermont with a top rocker and center patch.

    I talked to a Maine club who set up a 3 piece MC and almost went to war with HA over it.. ultimately they changed their lower rocker not to claim Maine.

    These are the people I’ve talked to. I’m not trying to look suspectful. Acknowledgement seeking was not this same as asking for respect just to say we’re here and are harmless. I was just looking to avoid any misunderstanding if we run into any MC’s at a gas station etc. and they say who the hell are you? As the founder I will speak for the meaning of the club..harmless, but very seriously committed helmetless riders in ME/Nh (bordering states and Canada have helmet laws so we’re bordered in on our freed0m to ride helmetless- which gives you a big clue about what the club means).

    I’ve gone homeless for a time (divorce shit)and kept my 2 Harleys than sell them to pay rent. That’s how serious I am and anyone else wearing this riding club patch is.

    Anyways thank you everyone for the advice.

    I personally have a patch on my vest that says Social Retard. I not a great communicator I admit.

    But have been passionate about riding motorized 2 wheels since as a kid, the first time I rode a friends mini bike and eventually drove head first into a wall :) Brakes? Where are those :) Like suggested, when I go to an MC sponcered run, then I will say hello and talk of the RC club.

    Thanks to all for their time and advice.

    I am going to offer you a personal opinion to take or leave at your discretion. I am not attempting to represent any club in my response.

    You say you want to be “acknowledged”. Let me just say that attempting to be ‘acknowledged” by a dominant club isn’t like anonymously applying for a fishing license.

    i think it safe to say that you already have your response. Your letter to a 1% club was summarily ignored.

    There could be any number of reasons. first and foremost any 1% club is always a target for state and federal LEO who will and have and will continue to attempt any manner of entrapment. ANY response in writing for this 1% (or any other 1% club) would constitute a self admission that they consider themselves the dominant club. I cannot tell you how many RICO indictments contain this allegation.

    Think for a moment.

    Secondly rollingnorth gave you some excellent and sage input.Be careful who YOU determine to be the dominant club in any area where more than one club exists.

    If I understand correctly you would fall under the category of any number of family or riding clubs. As such, your intention of being “respectful” would likely only come across as suspect were you to roll up to the clubhouse to discuss the matter in person.

    Attend open club sponsored events. That’s the best way to get “known”, if at all.

    Finally, check your own motive. If you choose neutral color scheme, a one piece patch, why would anyone even care?

    Jim Dixon,
    You are aware that AOA is there?
    It is a similar situation next door in NH. Perhaps the Manchester (NH) Motorcycle Club, an old RC (family, one-piece patch) can offer some tips on navigating these waters.
    I will keep you in mind if I here of anything helpful.


  9. SingSing Says:

    Good luck Mr. Dixon. This was an UNUSUAL method of seeking an intro of sorts but nonetheless i applaud the effort. Hopefully someone here will point u in the right direction..get ready for your cherries to be razzed though.. -SingSing TR CMC

    I know this post isn’t directly related to this article, but i’m trying to reach out to the serious MC community for some feedback.

    I am trying to set up a Riding Club in Maine by doing it in the most respectable and honorable way as possible as per the MC and 1% protocol – to not offend and just be recognized.

    Initially, I made a big mistake talking online to clubs in Maine that turned out to be LE clubs running state bottom rockers. These guys turned out to be total assholes. At the time I just didn’t understand why they are the only clubs here in MAINE running bottom state rockers besides 1% clubs. They say because they’re free to do what they want in america bullshit -but it seems more like it’s because they have badges. Their Pres isn’t even a cop! The sgt at arms told me I couldn’t start my club because i didn’t understand the protocol – So I said sarcastically -so can you set me up a meeting with HA to talk? (no response) I also called them going nowhere cop/frat boys :) they were pissing me off :) -No response at all. I told them they were hiding behind their LE patch and carrying guns and that’s it’s not fair to all the other clubs in maine (and the rest of country) that follow the rules of the MC world by respecting the meaning of wearing a state territory lower rocker.

    I basically got banned or whatever from their facebook site BLACK BEARS MC LE Lewiton, Maine -big fucking deal.

    The problem is I’m still trying to get acknowledged the MRC club from the COC etc-the club has no no sinister name or wannabe scary graphics or anything -It has a top rocker with Orange type outlined in thin black with a center patch –that’s it. It is about riding helmet-free in maine and new hampshire it makes a statement -our club all about the freedom of riding helmet free here in Maine and New Hampshire -I’m 52 been riding for about 40 not a kid – you also can’t wear a helmet in this club while wearing the patch. We’re also using a small MRC B&W patch.

    There is never a plan to run a lower state rocker or try to be an MC or 1% club. We’re just 4 or so guys.The dominant club in MAine are the HA I got their clubhouse address (town of Canaan) and sent a package with design photos, a mission statement etc) I respectfully asked in the letter to hear back from them and i could meet in person -I’m not afraid to meet because I have nothing to hide.
    I also understand they have no obligation to contact me.

    Can someone offer some advice on how to contact them? I can drive to their clubhouse but how do i connect with them -they are fenced in and way off the main road and I’m sure as hell not jumpin’ the fence :).

    I just wanted to know if a Maine or New England 1%er could read and respond. I happily will disclose any info/graphics they’d like to see.

    Like I said I have 100% respect and want to follow the real MC protocal not the LE’s version (what a bunch of self righteous assholes)

    Thank you for your time.

    Many moons ago, in a country far, far south of here, the local Narcos had a habit of setting up dope-houses that were JUST out in the open enough to attract attention. They’d have guys coming and going, vehicles parked around it, lights and music on all night, the whole drill.

    Anyhow, when news of the place reached agents of a certain three-letter agency from el Norte, it never failed that they’d raid the place, with contractors along for security.

    The contractors knew enough to stay back, cause the Narcos would line the floors with tarps, plastic the windows shut, seal the whole place up, then pour it full-o-gas, first person to flick a light switch or make a spark, well…

    Gets messy as hell when it’s raining FedBacon.

    Hope no one up here ever decides to do that-it would be illegal.

    All they do is waste tax dollars and collect crap…. Trust me there ain’t nothing illegal in that club house…..

    @ RVN69:

    Good point!

    @ jj:

    You speak the truth!

    Drug raid, huh? My, how the times have changed:

    “In the 1800s opiates and cocaine were mostly unregulated drugs. In the 1890s the Sears & Roebuck catalogue, which was distributed to millions of Americans homes, offered a syringe and a small amount of cocaine for $1.50.”

    The above from:

    And this whole page is really enlightening and enjoyable to read:

    Somewhere I have bookmarked a page of an old Sears catalog showing the syringe/cocaine kit; I’ll see if I can find it.

    Anyway…what are the pigs to do if California legalizes weed, and perhaps other drugs, like Colorado has legalized weed? What oh what will they do for raids then? Maybe knock down the doors of serial killers’ homes and rescue innocent victims from death?

    End pig harassment.

    Save The Patch.

    Ride Free

    all cops are assholes. anyone who has a cop for a relative has asshole genetics. anyone who has cop associates on a social level is an asshole and a fool. anyone who even likes cops is DNA damaged and should never procreate. anyone who actually votes to improve the working and non working conditions lifestyles of cops needs to be sent to a mental institution. cops serve no worthwhile or useful purpose. an asshole can never make anything better than it was. only worse. thank you. you now know and are educated about cops. take it to heart. trust it. stay away from them and do anything necessary to make them stay away from you.

  21. RVN69 Says:

    I just gotta wonder how much of the extra time the pigs spent inside was spent stealing personal or club property to be kept by the oinkers as souviners.

    They sure do love their pre dawn dynamic entry full metal bullshit don’t they? IF all this was just for one guy a traffic stop would have been sufficient.

    Think the neighbors called it ,what it is. Simple waste of tax payers money. Keep raiding club houses like its the Fuckin Dunkin donuts on there early morning shift change . Let’s focus on a good point I think. How the fuck they know he was there? Been they have been there alot im sure they try to give some effort to make sure there information is correct or someshit.

  25. Blind Tom Says:

    I’ve had nothing be great dealings with the Frisco Chapter since I moved to California in 1968. They used to help with the gigs in Golden Gate Park, always good folks, helped with the equipment just real polite.

    They helped my then old lady when she worked at the Free Clinic before we met after some black dudes mugged her going home on Stainer Street. They walked her home every night for two weeks and made it clear that she was off limits. They are and always have been good folks.

    San Francisco, for 25 years a haven for illegal immigrants, by City Ordinance, “which prohibits City employees from helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with immigration investigations or arrests unless such help is required by federal or state law or a warrant.” No such protection for members of motorcycle clubs, though.

  28. skinny denny Says:

    Maybe they had a large donut stash that the oinks wanted. Personally, I like glazed donuts with good coffee, and a little bit of good herb on the side. Fuck the oinks!
