Alleged Hells Angels member to plead guilty to weapon, drug charges

Douglas Leedham North Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A North Providence man has signed an agreement with federal prosecutors to plead guilty to charges of distributing drugs and weapons possession.

In February, federal investigators raided the Geneva Mills apartment of Douglas Leedham, an alleged member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. An FBI affidavit said agents found at the apartment 44 grams of meth, 19 grams of cocaine, $6,422 in cash, a shotgun, a handgun, 35 knives, four hatchets, batons, brass knuckles, and a pair of body armor vests.

Leedham, 54, agreed to plead guilty to charges of possession of 5 grams or more of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The plea agreement also stipulates that Leedham will surrender all of the firearms.

Prosecutors will recommend to the sentencing judge that Leedham receive a sentence of seven years in prison.

The judge still has the option to reject the plea agreement.
