PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police served two search warrants in northeast Portland Friday morning in connection with the 2015 murder of a man in Clark County.

Police searched two locations, 3536 NE Garfield Ave. and 3535 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., otherwise known as the Gypsy Joker Motorcycle Club clubhouse.

The warrants were part of an investigation into the death of 56-year-old Robert Huggins.

Huggins was found dead on a dirt road near the Clark County Fairgrounds in July of 2015.

Six people were indicted in connection with Huggins death in April.

Murder charges were filed against 56-year-old Mark Dencklau, 46-year-old Earl Fisher Jr., 34-year-old Tiler Pribbernow, and 32-year-old Malachi Watkins. Kendra Castle, 43, and Ronald Thompson, 51, were charged with hindering prosecution.

Police said Huggins was involved with the outlaw motorcycle gang, the Gypsy Jokers. His death is directly linked to that affiliation.

Dencklau, Fisher, and Pibbernow will be arraigned Friday. Watkins remains in custody at the Washington Department of Corrections for unrelated charges.

Castle and Thompson were released on bail.
