Hells Angel and Former CHP Dispatcher Nabbed On Weapons Charges
On December 13, federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agents served a search warrant at and raided the Vacaville home of Dennis Killough, 42, a member of the Hells Angels Vallejo chapter, and his wife, Sarah Killough, 35, a former California Highway Patrol dispatcher.
The ATF had begun an investigation into Dennis Killough’s alleged criminal activities several months ago. Killough was implicated in an ATF sting back then. He is alleged to have sold stolen military equipment and an AR-15 assault rifle to undercover agents.
During the raid on the Killough’s Vacaville home on December 13, Mrs. Killough was arrested for bribery and possessing methamphetamine for sale. Mr. Killough faces charges including sale of the AR-15 assault weapon, controlled substance offenses and being armed when arrested.
The AFT also raided on the Hells Angel Vallejo Chapter house on December 13. A handgun was seized there in addition to a sawed-off shotgun that was discovered at a nearby Hells Angels storage facility.
While the Killoughs are Vacaville residents, they will be tried in Yolo County as their alleged crimes took place there.
On December 19, 2013, a Yolo County Judge Arvid Johnson denied Mrs. Killough’s bail request.
As a former CHP dispatcher, Mrs. Killough “knows how to work around the system,” prosecutors argued. Coupling Mrs. Killough’s CHP experience with her Hells Angels connections meant she, prosecutors argued, was a “threat,” since the motorcycle club is “known to be violent.”
Mr. Killough remains jailed without bail.
