St. Louis, MO — Two Chicago area residents have been sentenced within the past week federal prison for Racketeering Conspiracy charges in United States District Court in St. Louis.

Anthony Owens, a/k/a 44, Pharaoh, 23 of Chicago, IL, was sentenced to 102 months in prison today, after previously pleading guilty to being an accessory after–the–fact to murder and tampering with evidence. Trevor Seymour, a/k/a Cyclopse, 42 of Chicago, IL, was sentenced last week to 120 months in prison for conspiring with other members of the Wheels of Soul to commit a murder in 2009, and kidnaping a member of another motorcycle gang in January 2010. They appeared for sentencing before Chief United States District Judge Catherine D. Perry.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in St. Louis, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in Chicago and the Chicago Police Department.
