High-profile Hells Angel found dead under Golden Ears bridge

(video) --- Chad Wilson was a high-profile and popular member of the Hells Angels and his murder is expected to increase the volatility in the Lower Mainland gang landscape.

A full-patch Hells Angel with the Hardside Chapter was found murdered under the Golden Ears Bridge on Sunday.

Chad Wilson, a former Hells Angel in San Diego, then Haney, joined the biker gang’s newest chapter when it formed last year.

Several of his friends had reported him missing the night before his body was found in the 20000-block of Wharf Street, Postmedia has learned.

Firefighters were first called to the scene about 11:30 a.m. Sunday. They immediately called in the Mounties when they found Wilson’s body.

Friends of Wilson’s, wearing their death-head patched Hells Angels vests, soon showed up at the scene.

Man arrested by WEM security over Hells Angels T-shirt wins hearing with law enforcement review board

A man arrested by security guards at West Edmonton Mall for refusing to remove a Hells Angels support T-shirt has won a hearing with the province’s law enforcement review board.

Paul Sussman claims Edmonton police officers who responded to his 2016 arrest did not take his complaint about the security guards’ conduct seriously, and that he was given the runaround when he later attempted to file a formal complaint.

The Alberta Law Enforcement Review Board (LERB) dismissed the police service’s attempt to have the complaint thrown out as frivolous and vexatious, and took the rare step of awarding Sussman $750 in costs before the matter goes to a full hearing.

The shirt Paul Sussman was wearing when he was detained and escorted out of West Edmonton Mall.

Ninety officers from the SQ, Montreal police, RCMP and regional police executed raids on 13 homes and nine vehicles.
 

Police in and around Montreal say they dealt a major blow to organized crime, seizing a half kilo of cocaine, 17,000 pills and $460,000 in cash during a series of raids Wednesday.

The raids, which yielded no arrests, are part of a continuing investigation into a narcotics ring linked to the Hells Angels.

“The goal wasn’t to get arrests,” said Sgt. Claude Denis, of the Sûreté du Québec. “This was about hitting their operations.”

Ninety officers from the SQ, Montreal police, RCMP and regional police executed raids on 13 homes and nine vehicles.

The task force, Escouade nationale de répression du crime organisé, was created last year to combat with the Hells Angels biker gang.

Hells Angels MC Nomads member from N.B. gets four years for cocaine trafficking

Robin Moulton, a full-patch member of the Hells Angels MC Nomads New Brunswick chapter, has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail for cocaine trafficking.

Police say Moulton and another person, Forty-one-year-old Marie Antonette Bugay, were sentenced after an RCMP-led joint-force investigation led to their arrest in August 2017.

Moulton pleaded guilty to the trafficking charge, as well as a charge for possession of a drug press.

“In addition to jail time, he is subject to a lifetime firearms prohibition, various forfeiture orders, and is required to submit a sample of his DNA,” the RCMP said in a news release.

Bugay, who police say is “an associate” of Moulton, was sentenced to 30 months in jail for possession of a loaded firearm without a license, possession of cocaine, and possession of proceeds obtained by crime.

Three full-patch Hells Angels plead guilty to drug trafficking charges

Stéphane Maheu, who had been sought since April, walked around the Montreal courthouse freely before being sentenced to six years in prison.

Three full-patch members of the Hells Angels, including one of the biker gang’s founding members in Canada, and a member of the Repentigny police pleaded guilty to various drug trafficking charges at the Montreal courthouse on Wednesday.

Twenty people in all appeared before Quebec Court Judge Daniel Bédard inside a fifth floor courtroom that was humming with activity throughout the day as almost every remaining case in Project Objection, a major investigation into three drug trafficking networks run by the Hells Angels, came to end only six months after arrests were made in April.

“I’m very impressed,” Bédard remarked at one point as several drug dealers pleaded guilty to charges that will result in them serving time inside federal penitentiaries.

Calgary police admit internal investigation ‘fell far short’ in Hells Angels arrest

Calgary police brass are apologizing for the way they handled a decade-old use of force investigation after an inquiry by Alberta’s Law Enforcement Review Board criticized the force’s sloppy handling of the case, but found no evidence of attempts to whitewash the probe.

Last July, Alberta Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley ordered the oversight board to review how the Calgary Police Service responded to court concerns of perjury and assault stemming from the 2008 arrest of Hells Angels member Jason Arkinstall, which saw two officers charged.

Arkinstall was later acquitted by a provincial court judge in 2010 of uttering threats, and had charges of obstruction and assault dropped.
