The daughter of the slain local leader of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and three local men were arrested Monday on drug and weapons charges after authorities found firearms, explosives and illegal drugs in their homes.
Elizabeth Diane Sluder, 25, of 4615 Circle Drive in Winston-Salem was charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a weapon of mass destruction, the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office said yesterday in a statement.
Her father, Dwight Sluder, 48, was found dead on July 15 in his house in northern Forsyth County. He had died of two gunshots to the head.
Dwight Sluder's name and address appear in a 2006 database of confirmed gang members whom the sheriff's office has identified as being affiliated with the Hells Angels.
Maj. Brad Stanley, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, said that the arrests of Elizabeth Sluder and the three men were not related to Dwight Sluder's death.
They are either members or associates of the Hells Angels, Stanley said. "That case is still open, and it is unsolved," Stanley said. "There are leads that we are following."
Stanley declined to comment on whether investigators will question Sluder's daughter and the three men about Dwight Sluder's death.
