Local law enforcement assisting Cody Police as Hells Angels converge on the town

(Cody, Wyo.) – The Cody Police Department is readying for the expected arrival of hundreds of members of the Hells Angels. According to other news reports, the state has provided nearly $200,000 for the agency to prepare for the large amount of bikers to arrive.

The Lander Police Department is sending a couple of its officers to assist the Cody Police. The LPD assistance comes as a kind of a trade as a couple Cody officers assisted LPD earlier this year with increased law enforcement presence as large settlement checks arrived for Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapahoe tribal members.

Some Wyoming Highway Patrol personnel from Fremont County are also in Cody assisting. According to one officer in the area, the bikers had begun arriving as of Tuesday morning. No Riverton Police have been sent.

The bikers are expected to be in Cody for four or five days as a part of the National Hells Angels Run. The last time the Hells Angels were in Cody was in 2006 with more than a thousand members present. There were reportedly five arrests of members of the club.

    The Angels have raised hell everywhere they have gone. They come to Wyoming because we leave them alone for the most part. They pretty much toe the line here because this is one state they have not had a problem with. They want to camp, party and ride their bikes. I would enjoy being around them more than the bus loads of foreigners that can't speak english that stop in Wyoming.
