Fourth man arrested in connection with deadly daylight shooting in Mississauga

A fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with a deadly daylight shooting in Mississauga earlier this month.

Investigators say 32-year-old Mississauga man Michael Deabaitua-Schulde was shot to death in the parking lot of a commercial plaza near Dundas Street and Cawthra Road on the morning of March 11.

Police say the incident occurred in view of people who were exercising at a nearby boxing gym.

The perpetrators, according to police, fled the scene in a blue Honda Civic, which was found in flames in the area of Rymal and Tomken roads a short time after the shooting.

Police say Deabaitua-Schulde was a “well-entrenched member” of the Niagara chapter of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang and was the “target” of the attack.

Decision reached in Hells Angels' legal tussle with e-store Redbubble

Ruling over Death Head logo.  

The Australian wing of infamous outlaw motorcycle gang the Hells Angels will receive “nominal” damages of just $5000 from craft and t-shirt online marketplace Redbubble after the Queensland arm of the global brand lost the bulk of an intellectual property infringement claim lodged in 2015.

Redbubble on Monday morning issued a notification to the Australian Securities Exchange that the Federal Court had “found in Redbubble’s favour and dismissed all of Hells Angels’ claims in relation to the copyright and consumer law causes of action.”

The dispute centred around the claim that Redbubble had allowed the sale of unauthorised Hells Angels’ merchandise, specifically using it’s iconic “death head” logo that features a winged skull and forms the basis of the gang’s patch for its uniform or colours.

Arrest made in stabbing death of 'Mikey Smash'

A 60-year-old member of an outlaw motorcycle club was arrested Friday on murder and gang charges in the stabbing death last month of an apparent Hells Angels affiliate in downtown Bakersfield.

Russell Vannoy was taken into custody around 4 a.m. in Bellflower in the killing of Michael Adam Morales, police said. He's currently the only suspect in the death of Morales, known as Mikey Smash. 

Police said Vannoy is a member of the Devils Diciples Motorcycle Club, a biker gang that, like the Hells Angels, was founded decades ago in California. 

Morales was stabbed the evening of Feb. 16 at Guthrie's Alley Cat, a popular dive bar located in the 1800 block of Eye Street. 

On his Facebook page, Morales' posts include a "Support 81 Bakersfield" emblem as his cover photo. That's supposedly symbolic of the eighth letter and first letter of the alphabet, signifying HA, or Hells Angels.

Parts of Hells Angels report ruled inadmissible at civil forfeiture trial

A B.C. judge has criticized a retired police expert on the Hells Angels as biased

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has criticized an “expert” report about the Hells Angels filed by the Director of Civil Forfeiture as full of biased, unsubstantiated claims about the biker club.

Justice Barry Davies ruled that several parts of the report are inadmissible in the director’s long-running civil case against the Hells Angels.

Davies was also critical of the report’s author, retired Ontario Provincial Police Det. Staff Sgt. Len Isnor, who Davies said relied on his “long held” conclusion that the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club is a criminal organization.

Isnor testified in December at a voir dire (a trial within a trial) to determine the admissibility of his report.

In 1967, Alta Loma landlord finds the Hell’s Angels tough to evict

How would you like to be in the shoes of landlord W.H. LaBand of West Covina when he decided to evict residents of his Alta Loma ranch in 1967?

The tenants’ lease was up on April 1, 1967, but even before that LaBand wanted them out. The touchy part was getting them to leave — no easy task because the place was the headquarters for the “Berdoo” chapter of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang.

The property, the Gray Ranch, was an 80-acre former citrus orchard with an old two-story house at the base of the mountains, west of Haven Avenue and not far from the new campus of Chaffey College. At this time, the spread of tract homes had not yet reached that undeveloped area of today’s Rancho Cucamonga.

Another East Village institution—albeit an infamous one—appears to be packing up and leaving the neighborhood. EV Grieve reports that the Hell’s Angels are planning to sell their longtime clubhouse on East 3rd Street, and may move as soon as the spring.

Public records show that a memorandum of contract has been drawn up between the Angels and a corporation listed as 77 East 3rd Street LLC. That firm is linked to Nathan Blatter of Whitestone Realty Group, a commercial real estate investor. No sale price was included in the memorandum.
