WINSTON-SALEM — North Carolina police have arrested the daughter of a slain local leader of the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club and three men on drug and weapons charges.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported Wednesday that 25-year-old Elizabeth Sluder and the three men were described by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office as either Hell’s Angels members or
associates.

Sluder’s 48-year-old father, Dwight Sluder, was shot to death in July in his house in northern Forsyth County. Investigators say the killer could have been a business acquaintance or a rival gang member.

The four were arrested Monday after state and federal officers probing the motorcycle gang said they found evidence of illegal guns and narcotics, counterfeiting, and larcenies.
