Authorities in Daly City and Colma are mobilizing for what could bring a massive entourage of Hells Angels bikers into the cities this weekend for the funeral of a slain member.
Police said the bikers have not informed police of how many family members, friends and Hells Angels members would show up for the funeral of Mark Guardado, the San Francisco chapter president who was shot dead in the Mission district Sept. 2.
“They are not really cooperating when we ask them about their plans,” said Sgt. Michael Pfotenhauer of the Colma Police Department.
The wake for Guardado will be in Daly City’s Duggan’s chapel at 3 p.m. Sunday. There will be another service there at 7 p.m. and the funeral service at 10 a.m. Monday.
Guardado will finally be laid to rest at Cypress Lawn Memorial Park at 2 p.m., according to cemetery officials.
“This is a multi-jurisdictional event, and so departments are now mobilizing,” Pfotenhauer said.
Meanwhile, police are hunting for a rank-and-file member of a rival bike club in connection with Guardado’s slaying. An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Christopher Ablett, 35, of Modesto, a member of the Mongols motorcycle club.
The U.S. Marshals and other police agencies are searching for Ablett, who is considered dangerous but not believed to be a gang leader, Lynch said.
“We are looking for him everywhere — we really don’t know where he is,” Lynch said.
