Police raid Campbell River biker clubhouse in murder probe

(video)--B.C.’s anti-gang police have raided a Vancouver Island clubhouse of the Devils Army in connection with the murder of a Saanich man in March 2016.

Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said the raid happened about 8 a.m. Thursday at 70 Petersen Road in Campbell River. 

Dillon Brown, 30, was found slain inside his car near the west side of a bridge to Sayward, about 75 kilometres north of Campbell River on March 12, 2016

Houghton said his murder was targeted. Brown was last seen leaving a Campbell River residence a day before his body was found.

The Devils Army opened in the Vancouver Island city in 2009 and maintains a relationship with the Haney Hells Angels. The Army has five full-patch members and two strikers.

“While the investigation thus far has led us to executing a search warrant this morning at the Devils Army Clubhouse, we still believe that there are people who have been reluctant to speak with us who know details about the murder of Dillon Brown,” Houghton said. “We want to speak with you and we urge you to do the right thing and contact us.”

No one has been arrested and police said little about why they are focusing on the clubhouse.

Houghton said the victim, known as Dillon Brown, was a semi-pro MMA fighter who was the father of four children, two born after he died. 

CFSEU has been working on the investigation with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, Houghton said. Over 100 officers have been involved on the file.

He said officers will be at the site for several days “as they search the clubhouse and property for evidence related to Mr. Brown’s homicide.”

“The investigation into the homicide of Dillon Brown remains ongoing and there is no further information that police are able to publicly provide at this time,” Houghton said.
