An Oklahoma City man who was described as an outlaw motorcycle gang's leader pleaded guilty Friday to a weapons offense.

Michael Allen Gardner, 47, pleaded guilty in Oklahoma City federal court to possession of a sawed-off rifle.

He was identified in a grand jury indictment as the national president of the Rogues Motorcycle Club. The gun was in his kitchen in January.

Under a plea deal, he agreed to serve 10 years in federal prison. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss eight drug-related offenses against him. A judge will rule later whether the agreement is acceptable.

Gardner also agreed to give up $1,900 and his legal interest in property in Oklahoma City known as the Rogues Clubhouse, prosecutor Ed Kumiega said.

The grand jury said Gardner has owned the clubhouse, 1920 S Central Ave., since 1994. The grand jury said the clubhouse has “a private room exclusively for Rogues members and invited guests for the use of” methamphetamine and other drugs.

Police in May searched his home at 3306 S Quapah Ave. for buried human remains. None were found.
