For Immediate Release: November 21, 2017 

SAN FRANCISCO – The FBI San Francisco Division, Santa Rosa Police Department, California Highway Patrol, and the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office are requesting the public’s assistance in locating Russell Allen Lyles, Jr., aka “J.R.”, 36, of Windsor, California. The Sonoma County Alliance is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Russell Allen Lyles, Jr. as part of its “Take Back Our Community” program. 

Russell Allen Lyles, Jr. was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 10, 2017 on charges of Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Conspiracy, Maiming in Aid of Racketeering, and Assault with a Dangerous Weapon in Aid of Racketeering. These charges were unsealed on November 20, 2017. Lyles is a known member of the Sonoma County Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. 

Lyles lives in Windsor, CA and has a home in Healdsburg, CA. He also owns and operates a business in Windsor. Law enforcement believes that Lyles may be traveling with his pregnant fiancee, who is not a fugitive from the law. Lyles has ties to and may be traveling in Lake County, Mendocino County, or Sonoma County. He has ties to the Lake Sonoma area. 

The public should not try to approach Lyles, and should instead contact law enforcement immediately. If you have any information on his location, please contact the FBI San Francisco Division at (415) 553-7400 or or contact the Santa Rosa Police Department at (707) 528-5222.
