Fourth Hells Angels Motorcycle Club Member Indicted After Investigation into Brutal Beating at the Vallejo Clubhouse
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Christopher Matthew Rougeau, 38, of Vallejo, was sentenced today to 21 years and 10 months in prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.
According to court documents, on April 20, 2022, law enforcement officers found Rougeau in his car and searched him pursuant to a search warrant. They found a pistol in a holster on his hip. On the passenger seat, officers found 159 grams of methamphetamine, which was 94% pure, and a digital scale. In the backseat, officers found another pistol. Rougeau has been previously convicted in California state court of multiple firearm and drug offenses.
This case was the product of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas M. Fogg prosecuted the case.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the U.S. Department of Justice launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
