The president and sergeant-of-arms of the Oakland Hells Angels chapter were arrested Tuesday morning after 58 marijuana plants, guns and money were seized at two sites in Oakland and Alameda, authorities said.
Another man and three women were also arrested during the raids.
The raids began about 7 a.m. at a trailer in the 1100 block of Fifth Avenue in Oakland and at a home in the 2200 block of San Antonio Avenue in Alameda.
Five of the arrests happened at the Oakland site, including 66-year-old Elliott "Cisco" Valderrama, who authorities said is the president of the Oakland Hells Angels chapter. Authorities said Valderrama lived at the site.
Arrested at the Alameda residence was Gavin Malone, who authorities said is the chapter's sergeant-at-arms.
The names of the others arrested were not immediately available.
The investigation that led to the raids and arrests was started more than a month ago by Alameda County sheriff's deputies who are assigned to the Peralta Community College District police force.
Sheriff's Sgt. Marty Neideffer said deputies detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the area of the trailer, which is just a few blocks from Laney College.
The investigation was turned over to the Alameda County Narcotics Task Force, which developed enough evidence to lead to the raids. Assisting in the raids were the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, sheriff's deputies and the Alameda and Oakland police departments.

Authorities said the majority of the plants were found at the Oakland location as was a large amount of money. Several guns were found at the two locations, authorities said.
Authorities did not release what charges the six were arrested on Tuesday.
