Police: Biker gang masquerades as Christian ministry

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - In more than 25 years at the helm of his biker ministry, Phillip Aguilar has counseled Hells Angels and treated drug addicts in his California church's rehab homes. But police say Aguilar's Set Free Soldiers may have morphed into the kind of gang they claim to save people from.

Aguilar and four other Set Free Soldiers pleaded not guilty at their arraignments Thursday on weapons and gang charges after a bar
brawl that ended with two Hells Angels stabbed. One member of
Aguilar's group is charged with attempted murder. Aguilar is free on bail.

Newport Beach police say their raid at the Set Free compound of four suburban homes yielded gang paraphernalia, thousands of rounds
of ammunition and dozens of guns and knives.
