Curtis Lynds pleads guilty in Hells Angels murders

Barry Kirk Mersereau and Nancy Christensen found dead in 2000

 

A Colchester County man has pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder in connection with a biker gang war that rocked Nova Scotia more than a decade ago.

Curtis Blair Lynds, 38, was supposed to go on trial in Kentville on Monday. Instead, he appeared in a Halifax courtroom on Thursday and pleaded guilty to his involvement in the execution-style killings ​of Barry Kirk Mersereau, 48, and his wife Nancy Christensen, 47.

They were found dead in their home in Centre Burlington in September 2000. They'd been shot.

Mersereau was a drug dealer with connections to the Hells Angels. At the time, police believed Mersereau put a bounty out on any full-patched member of the Hells Angels because he believed the club had his brother killed.

A Connecticut man is facing drug and weapons possession charges after State Police allegedly discovered both in his motorcycle during a traffic stop in Lee Saturday afternoon, officials said.

Curtis Godfrey, 52, of Winsted was stopped while driving on Route 20 just after 5 p.m., State Police said in a statement.

A subsequent search of the vehicle and Godfrey revealed he was illegally carrying two canisters of pepper spray, prescription drugs, and a leather belt and wristband, which both had metallic spikes, State Police said.

Six Satudarah members arrested; weapon possession

Six members of Satudarah motorcycle club Satudarah were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of weapons possession or weapons trade. Two women were also arrested. The eight suspects had to announce themselves at the police station in East-Netherlands and were there arrested, a spokesperson for the East-Netherlands police says.

The police in the East have been involved in an international investigation into drug and weapons trafficking. German police requested the support of the Dutch Public Prosecution Authority in the form of collecting evidence.

It seemed that a chapter of Satudarah in Duisberg (Germany) was working together with various Satudarah chapters in the Netherlands.
