Full-patch Hells Angel among nine arrested in largest meth bust in Manitoba: RCMP

WINNIPEG -- After a number of homes in Winnipeg and the Interlake were searched in the early morning hours of Wednesday, RCMP say they have made one of the largest meth seizures in Manitoba and have arrested a full-patch Hells Angel member.

On Wednesday the RCMP organized crime team executed nine search warrants in Manitoba and Alberta. Seven of those searches were in Winnipeg, one was in St. Laurent, Man., and one was in Calgary, Alta.

RCMP said the investigation has led to seizures of meth, cocaine, cash, and a number of vehicles. RCMP said while the total amount of drugs and money seized still needs to be counted – it is expected to be the largest meth seizures in the province.

Freed Hells Angels “violating bail terms” – but there’s nothing authorities can do

Freed only two weeks ago (due to various judicial lapses click here) – a number of the 37 members of bikers group Hell’s Angels – detained in a country wide swoop on alleged organised crime two summers ago – are already violating their bail terms, reports Diário de Noticias.

The violations include ‘contacting each other’, frequenting clubs that they have been told not to enter and returning to jobs as security guards – absolutely prohibited for anyone with a criminal record.

Says the paper: authorities are well aware that measures imposed by the Public Ministry are being flouted but “have no way of ensuring otherwise”.

A source described as ‘involved in the monitoring of violent gangs’ agreed the situation “could represent, more than anything, a new risk”.

Thunder Bay fire destroys Hells Angels clubhouse and Rizzo's Cabinets

A fire Tuesday night destroyed the Hells Angels Clubhouse and Rizzo's Cabinets on Simpson Street.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue says the initial call came in at 10:24 pm.

Platoon Chief Edward Hill said more calls were coming in while crews were on their way to the fire, with crews calling a second alarm while heading to the scene.

Hill said arriving firefighters found heavy flame and smoke coming from the back of the Hells Angels Clubhouse and the fire was spread into the roof of Rizzo's Cabinets,  but they were able to keep it from spreading further.

"We actually managed to make a good stop and the old, I believe it's European Bakery, we managed to keep the fire from spreading into that structure or the Underground Gym that was south of that structure," said Hill.

Hells Angels rounded-up in massive swoop ‘almost all released’ due to judicial sloth

37 of 39 bikers connected to the notorious Hells Angels gang have been released from Portuguese jails – after 14 months behind bars – without their case getting anywhere near a courtroom.

Say reports, the situation has caused “a lot of bad feeling” within the PJ police who led this investigation.

It now seems highly likely the case will collapse as many of the defendants are foreigners, explains Correio da Manhã who will almost certainly return to their home countries, “which will make it difficult to notify them” when the case is finally ready to be heard in Portugal.

When this investigation ‘hit the headlines’ two summers ago (click here) it was described as a major coup for the combat of organised crime.

But it was also deemed “especially complex”.

When reached by phone this morning, bureau acting public information officer Matthew Deasaro wouldn't divulge the nature of the search warrants or where they were being executed; however, he did confirm one is for a property in the 3200 block of Navajo Street, which has been home to a Hells Angels clubhouse for more than two decades.

"The investigation is still ongoing and in the operational phase," Deasaro said. "Because of that, we can't divulge much information at this time."

When Bill Owens got his pictures of the violence at the Altamont Speedway Free Festival published in Rolling Stone, he would not let his name appear on the photo credit. Owens had been threatened and he feared retribution from the same Hells Angels he’d photographed swinging pool cues in front of the concert stage on Dec. 6, 1969.

Australian Hell's Angels member arrested in Thailand over WA drugs charges

Thai police have arrested an Australian Hell's Angels gang member who is wanted on drug charges in Western Australia
Police say they arrested Luke Anderson last Thursday after meeting with Australian Embassy officials on the problem of outlaw motorbike gangs.
They say they have revoked his visa and will deport him.
Police told reporters in Bangkok yesterday that the arrest warrant dated back to 2017, but gave no details.
They said Anderson had been living with his Thai girlfriend in Pattaya, a coastal city notorious for crime and corruption.
The gang's presence in Thailand was highlighted in 2015 when the Australian head of Hell's Angels in Pattaya was bludgeoned to death and buried in a shallow grave in what was thought to be a drug-related dispute.

Going to war with the Hells Angels: how speed became big in Australia

(video) --- Maybe if the private schoolboy from Melbourne had not rented such a flash car on his fact-finding trip to the US he wouldn’t have been noticed - but a gleaming silver Thunderbird is a head-turner even in laid-back San Francisco.

And maybe if he hadn’t given the rental company an address in Oakland's Foothill Boulevard which happened to be the headquarters of the Hells Angels' mother chapter, Peter John Hill could have slipped in and out as just another Aussie tourist looking for a Californian adventure.
