Defense questions payments to Pagan-turned-informant in Kauffman case

A key witness in the case against Ferdinand “Freddy” Augello has been paid about $2,000 a month by the state, according to information released in court Monday.
Augello is going on trial for murder and racketeering the 2012 killing of radio host April Kauffman and for an opioid ring he allegedly led with her now-dead husband, Dr. James Kauffman.
Dr. Kauffman allegedly partnered with alleged Pagans Motorcycle Club leader Augello in a scheme that had a group selling Oxycontin the doctor wrote scripts for.
What helped finally break the case was cooperation by Andrew Glick, a former Pagan who used what he allegedly knew about the Kauffman-Pagan partnership to get himself out of trouble after he was arrested last November on weapons and drug charges.

Hitman who tried to kill Hells Angel at Vancouver airport handed 11-year sentence

Knowah Ferguson, now 21, jailed for attempted murder and conspiracy for failed hit

An Ontario hitman has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for trying to kill a high-profile Hells Angel at Vancouver International Airport more than three years ago.

Knowah Ferguson, now 21, travelled from Ontario in March 2015 with plans to shoot Damion Ryan.

Ferguson was arrested two months after the failed hit in April 2015, and later pleaded guilty to attempted murder and conspiracy.

In sentencing, Justice Joyce DeWitt-Van Oosten said sentencing was difficult because Ferguson was a young, first-time offender convicted of one of the most serious crimes under Canadian law.

Never-ending war’: How Alberta is cracking down on the Hells Angels and the outlaw biker gangs that support them

(video) --- An orange glow on the horizon burnt off a light July fog as a surveillance unit with the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) monitored the movements of Shane Lance Daly early one morning.

For close to a year, police had been keeping tabs on the 39-year-old, a man they allege is a full-patch member of the Dirty Few Motorcycle Club, a known Hells Angels support club.

But on July 25, police were ready to take action.

Daly pulled his dusty charcoal-coloured Lincoln Navigator out of the Spruce Grove Tim Hortons tacked onto the Shell gas station just off Highway 16A.

It was just before 7 a.m. as he turned right onto Campsite Road then left onto the highway.

Police: Motorcyclist killed in crash fleeing from traffic stop, 2 others arrested

HAMILTON, Ohio -- One motorcyclist died in a crash and two others were arrested after they fled from a traffic stop Tuesday night, Hamilton police said.

An officer saw several motorcyclists commit traffic violations near the intersection of Williams Avenue and River Road at about 8:23 p.m. Tuesday and initiated a traffic stop, police said in a news release. The officer believed the motorcyclists were members of a "known outlaw motorcycle club" because of insignia they had. At least one of them was wearing Iron Horsemen colors, according to an arrest report.

Three of the motorcyclists fled from the traffic stop, driving northbound onto Neilan Boulevard, police said. The lead officer decided not to pursue them, but called out their description to dispatchers and other officers.
