Hells Angels might lose clubhouse in Welland, but police warn the gang's still active

Using mostly bikers from out-of-town chapters to bolster their numbers, the gang has begun to establish a presence in Niagara Falls

The home of one of Niagara’s most notorious criminal organizations may soon face the wrecking ball.

Lawyers representing the owners of the Hells Angels clubhouse on Darby Road in Welland, Ont., have until Dec. 6 to appeal a ruling that the building be forfeited to the Ontario government. If they don’t appeal or an appeal fails, the fortified building will likely be demolished, police sources tell The Standard.

However, police say the destruction of the building that was once the centre of the Hells Angels empire on wheels in Niagara doesn’t mean the gang has gone extinct.

Huge gallery: Hells Angels annual Poppy Day Run

(gallery)--Cape Town - More than 300 riders on an astonishing variety of machines, from mainstream 1970s muscle-bikes to futuristic electric scooters, turned out on Saturday 11 November for the Hells Angels’ annual Poppy Day Run – a memorial to those who have laid down their lives over the past century in global and smaller conflicts, fighting for the freedom we take for granted.

And even more so, for those who came back broken, inside and out. For all too often we lose sight of the fact that the early motorcycle clubs were formed by American servicemen returning from the Second World War who just couldn’t settle down. Today we call it Post Traumatic Shock Disorder; in the late 1940s they were called ‘outlaw bikers’ – a badge they wore with somewhat bitter pride.


Mistrial declared in Twin Peaks case

WACO, Texas (KWTX) A mistrial was declared Friday afternoon in the trial of the first Twin Peaks shootout defendant after jurors reached consensus on one of three counts late Friday morning, but told the judge they could not agree on the other two.

Jurors sent a note to the judge at around 11:15 a.m. that said there was no chance they could reach a verdict on the other two counts against Jacob Carrizal, 35.

Carrizal, the president of the Dallas chapter of the Bandidos, is accused of directing activities of a street gang, engaging in organized criminal activity with the underlying offense of murder and engaging in organized criminal activity with the underlying offense of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the May 17, 2015 shootout that left nine bikers dead and more than 20 injured.

The note said some jurors are willing to wait, but unwilling to review evidence.


Lexington Hells Angel hired a pal to kill ex-wife for 401(k) money, FBI says


Jerry Oliver needed money. Debts were piling up.
