Nomads make return to Ottawa

Hells Angels Ontario chapter disbanded in 2016 after turf war with Quebec gang

The Hells Angels Nomads are making their comeback in the Ottawa area for the first time since violent in-fighting in the summer of 2016 forced them to lie low, according to information obtained by Radio-Canada.

According to anonymous police sources, the Ottawa-based Ontario Nomads chapter recently obtained a new charter from the Hells Angels, but will need to be careful not to encroach on territory ruled by Quebec Hells Angels.

For two decades the Quebec chapter of the Hells Angels based in Sherbrooke enjoyed massive profits from drug sales in Ottawa and Sudbury.


Nomads bikie gang president arrested in Sydney fraud probe

The national president of the Nomads bikie gang has been charged as part of a multi-million-dollar property fraud investigation, the NSW Police Force says.

The 35-year-old man was arrested after being pulled over while driving a Mercedes Benz which police allege had been sold without the owner's consent.

His arrest is the seventh to be made as part of Strike Force Maraar, which is investigating alleged vehicle and mortgage fraud across Sydney connected to the Nomads Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

Police said it was alleged "multiple houses and vehicles", worth an estimated $2 million, had been purchased fraudulently by members and associates of the gang.

They said the gang's president was pulled over while driving a Mercedes Benz without licence plates in Merrylands, in Sydney's west, in January.

"Further checks revealed the vehicle had been sold in Queensland without the owner's consent," a police statement said.
