Police serve search warrants at Gypsy Joker Motorcycle Clubhouse in 2015 homicide case

Detectives served a search warrant at the Gypsy Joker Motorcycle Club's clubhouse Friday morning as part of a homicide investigation from last year.

Six people were indicted last week in the man's death.

Loggers found the body of Robert Lee Huggins, 56, last July in Ridgefield, Washington - about 25 miles north of Portland. He died from multiple blunt and sharp-force injuries.

Detectives haven't released many details surrounding the case, citing their ongoing investigation.

Police arrested four men with ties to the motorcycle club on murder charges. Two other people were charged with hindering prosecution.

State Police SWAT and the Washington County Sheriff's Office helped Portland Police homicide detectives serve a search warrant Friday morning at the Gypsy Joker's clubhouse near NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Fremont Street.

Homicide Detective Jim Lawrence told our news partners at The Columbian that Huggins, also part of the Gypsy Jokers motorcycle gang, had been seen in northeast Portland a day before his body was found in Clark County.

Mark Dencklau, 56, Earl Fisher, 46, Tiler Pribbernow, 34, and Malachi Watkins, 32, were all indicted on murder and kidnapping charges.

Ronald Thompson, 51, and Kendra Castle, 43, were charged with hindering prosecution, and Thomson faces an additional tampering with evidence charge.

Dencklau, Fisher and Pribbernow are set to be arraigned Thursday in Multnomah County Court. Watkins, Castle and Thompson will be arraigned at a later time.
