The leader of the Hell’s Angels Romania Club, Marius Lazar, 49, was arrested on Wednesday, December 29, and will be extradited to the United States. The Bucharest Police Department made the arrest.
The suspect was apprehended at his home, near Bucharest, in Voluntari. He told the law enforcement officers that he wasn’t aware he was wanted for criminal activity.
According to sources, Marius Lazar was wanted by the authorities in the United States after, in 2020, he allegedly negotiated with several New Zealand citizens the assassination of two rivals. Also, he was caught red-handed while allegedly trying to pay for part of a shipment of 400 kilos of cocaine.
Marius Lazar is currently under arrest and is waiting for his extradition to the United States, where he will face a criminal investigation and trial. Should he be found guilty and convicted, he faces imprisonment in an American prison.
