Stolen Souls biker gang in Cambridge now at 30 members, says OPP

Stolen Souls now twice the normal size of Hells Angels support clubs

The Waterloo Regional Police Service and Ontario Provincial Police are keeping a close eye on a Hells Angels-affiliated motorcycle gang that has moved into Cambridge and is recruiting locally.

The Stolen Souls motorcycle club originated in Halton, but left that community about two years ago and made the move to Cambridge.

Since then it's grown to about 30 members said Staff Sgt. Len Isnor, who oversees the OPP's biker enforcement unit.

"Usually, the average support club is somewhere in the area of a dozen, so 30 is a lot," said Isnor.

The more members in a club, said Isnor, the more that club has to divvy up territory and responsibilities, which can lead to increased tensions among members.  

"If you have more members, there's more likelihood of having violence," he said.

Bikie charged over Hamilton Hill siege

A 32-year-old man accused of holding his ex-girlfriend and her mum at gunpoint in Hamilton Hill overnight is a member of the Rebels motorcycle gang, a court has been told.

Jason Kemp appeared in the Fremantle Magistrates Court this afternoon, charged over a five-hour siege which ended when tactical response group officers stormed a Churm Street home last night.

Police were called about 7:30 pm when one of the women managed to flee the house and call triple zero.

The Fremantle Magistrates Court was told Mr Kemp is a patched member of the Rebels and used a loaded handgun to threaten the women, one of whom he’d been in a relationship with.

Police told the court the case against Mr Kemp was strong, and raised concerns he might try to interfere with witnesses if he was released on bail.

Bail was refused and Mr Kemp will be held in custody until his next court appearance in a fortnight.

Landlord not concerned with biker tenants

ALBERTON, P.E.I. - An Alberton landlord says he’s not concerned by RCMP reports that an outlaw biker gang has taken up residence in his building.
 

"They’re the same people who rented from me,” said Michael Gaudet, who indicated seven people started renting the basement level of his Main Street apartment building late last year.

Membership has since grown to eight, he said, and they pay the monthly rent out of their own pockets.

Gaudet said two of the members are his sons-in-law. “It’s just a private club. If you’re going in, you’re invited,” he said, indicating they have TVs and a pool table in their clubhouse.

Gaudet said he isn’t a member and doesn’t have time to be one.

Australian Hells Angels pay off assault victims after Thai bingle bashing

Two Australian members of the Hells Angels will still face criminal charges, despite handing over compensation to the men they assaulted in Thailand.

Key points:

  • Security footage shows three Australian men bashing a young Thai man
  • The Australians, two of whom are Hells Angels members, handed over money to the victims
  • Details of how the fight began are disputed, though it is believed the men hit a parked motorcycle with their car

 

Pattaya police said Daniel Anthony Stalley, 34 and John Lee, 43, handed themselves in at the weekend.

Security camera footage from 17 September shows three Australian men punching and kicking a young Thai man on the ground.

The graphic video shows one of the bikies holding the Thai man's head so the other attacker can kick him in the face.

The Thai man's brother was also injured in the attack. Both are in their mid-20s.

Drug sting: Hairdresser tells of 'rumours'

A hairdresser facing charges in connection with an alleged celebrity cocaine sting in Auckland says the charges are just "rumours" - but his lawyer has confirmed his client will be in court.

The hairdresser, a fashion designer - who both have name suppression - and a senior Hells Angel gang member were the three original targets in Operation Ceviche which led to the seizure of 760g of cocaine, worth $300,000, and $81,000 cash in late August.

Police allege each of the trio were running their own "mini drug supply networks" and among the 13 other people arrested were a male model, a plumber, a clothing distributor and a film production assistant.

Among the alleged cocaine clientele is a stockbroker, a senior music executive, the boss of a large company, a recruitment agency owner, the husband of a TV actress and a personal trainer.

They are named in court documents but have not been charged.

Some also had their hair cut at his salon.
