Germany Hell's Angels raided by police


German police carried out a series of raids across the north of the country, targeting properties linked to the Hell’s Angels biker club.

The operations were carried out at 80 locations in Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony, including the home of Frank Hanebuth, whose dog was shot during the raid.

Amongst other things, police were reportedly looking for the body of a Turkish man who may have been killed after falling out with the group.

Soenke Hinrichs with the city of Kiel’s police department said: “The aim of the search was to find evidence of a variety of crimes, such as assault and arms trafficking.”

Germany’s Hell’s Angels are also suspected of being involved in people trafficking.

The worldwide organisation is thought to have links with organised crime.

Authorities shut down some Hell’s Angels clubs in northern Germany two years ago.
