Finger tattoos gave wanted Hells Angel away to alert Mountie

~~San Diego club member ordered deported from Canada to face U.S. charges~~

It was his tattoos that gave American Hells Angel and fugitive Troy Andrew Scholder away.

An alert Mountie noticed H-A-M-C across the fingers of his right hand, for Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, and D-A-G-O across the left, for the San Diego chapter.

Scholder, 33, was caught during a routine traffic stop near Langley’s Willowbrook mall on May 8.

He said he had arrived in Canada on May 6, despite being on the lam since August 2011. And he told the RCMP that he had hitchhiked here and crossed the border without identification documents while sleeping on the back seat of a stranger’s car.

On Friday, Immigration Board member Laura Ko ordered Scholder deported and told him he was inadmissible to re-enter Canada because of his own criminal history and because the San Diego Hells Angels qualified as a criminal organization under Canadian immigration laws.

The Last LOUD Ride for a Local Hells Angels Biker

It was a heavy metal thunder funeral procession with more than one hundred Harleys and Hells Angels bikers wearing their club colours in Edmonton last night.

Dozens of Hells Angels and their biker associates gathered at a club house off 66th Street in north Edmonton before the rumbling ride to the Edmonton Cemetery on 107th Avenue near 118th Street. Police put the bike count at 110 or more and most of the riders were displaying Hells Angels or affiliated colours on their leather vests. The Harleys fired up and made their way into the heart of the city for the last ride of a man believed to be an influential local biker.

Police assisted the Hells Angels with traffic control as required at key intersections and as one officer says “they were respectful to us and we were respectful to them.”  The heavy metal procession caught the eyes of hundreds of people who saw and heard the bikers passing by.

MONTREAL — A man who was kicked out of the Hells Angels because of his problems with drug addiction is expected to appear in court Tuesday in an attempted murder case involving a recent downtown shooting.
