New Brunswick Hells Angels member granted day parole

A man the police describe as a full-patch member of the Hells Angels New Brunswick Nomads chapter has been granted day parole, despite opposition from local police and Correctional Service Canada.

Police believe Robin Moulton returned to his home province of New Brunswick in 2016 not just to sell motorcycle apparel, but with the purpose of setting up a chapter for Hells Angels, according to an Oct. 3 Parole Board of Canada decision.

The New Brunswick Nomads chapter is part of an eastern expansion for Canada's largest and most powerful outlaw motorcycle gang, which also established a chapter in Charlottetown this year.

Moulton, 50, was sentenced last October to 4½ years in prison for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a drug press with the intention of producing or trafficking a substance.

N.S. RCMP say they'll be monitoring outlaw biker gathering in Annapolis Valley

HALIFAX -- RCMP say they will be on hand for what's expected to be a large gathering of outlaw biker gangs in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley on Saturday.

The Mounties tweeted Friday to advise motorists they will be conducting road safety checkpoints in the Wilmot, N.S., area.

Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, a spokeswoman for the force, said the biker gathering is being hosted by the Darksiders club which has a chapter in the area.

"We don't believe there's any risk to public safety, but we do feel we should warn the public that we will be in the area doing increased traffic enforcement," said Clarke.

Clarke couldn't say how many bikers would be attending the event but added police believe members of the Hells Angels, Bacchus, and the Red Devils -- a Hells Angels affiliate group -- would be in attendance. She wouldn't say what police know about the meeting.

Winnipeg police raid Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouse for selling booze without a licence

Club believed 'Donations only' signs above bar would prevent police from busting them, search documents say

Winnipeg police raided two Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouses and charged three people with selling liquor without a licence under the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act.

The search warrants were executed in December 2018 after police said they received information from three people that the Hells Angels were selling liquor without a licence inside two clubhouses in rural Manitoba houses. One is in the rural municipality of Rosser, the other on Redonda Street in the rural municipality of Springfield.

Police affidavits say the informants told investigators there is a set price for booze at the clubhouse bars and the Angels believed that law enforcement couldn't investigate them if they put up signs that said "Donations."

Hundreds of bikers to descend on Port Dover for Friday the 13th

The OPP say there will be a heightened police presence at the rally

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of bikers are expected to gather in Port Dover today for Friday the 13th celebrations. Provincial police say the bikers and other visitors will notice a heightened police presence in the town on the north shore of Lake Erie.

Since 1981, motorcycle enthusiasts have been converging on Port Dover whenever Friday the 13th appears on the calendar. The event attracts bikers from across Ontario and parts of the United States to the community with a population of about 6,000.

The last gathering in July, 2018 drew about 200,000 people on a warm, sunny day, but Friday's forecast is less inviting. It's expected to be cloudy with afternoon showers and the risk of a thunderstorm, and that will likely put a damper on the numbers.

Provincial police are urging those who will be making the trip to drive responsibly.

Police worry about violence targeting the outlaw motorcycle group

The spokesperson for B.C.’s anti-gang police unit said it’s “concerning” that Hells Angels gang members appear to have been holding parties in Langley Township rec centres.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) has been running a social media campaign in recent months to warn people about the risk to the public posed by outlaw biker gangs such as the Hells Angels.

“Anyone could have been in danger of being a victim of an act of violence, an innocent victim,” Winpenny said.

The Hells Angels are “perpetrators and attractors of violence,” she said.

Police informant kicked out of witness protection for using drugs, among other reasons, gov't says

Documents come in response to lawsuit filed by biker gang informant Noel Harder

The federal Attorney General says a Saskatoon man who helped convict 20 criminals was kicked out of the Witness Protection Program earlier this year for several reasons, including using drugs and failing to answer phone calls and texts. 

Noel Harder — who served as a police informant and main witness for the largest organized crime investigation in Saskatchewan history — also visited a strip club known to be a criminal hangout, communicated with several people using his real name, and broke too many other rules, according to a court document obtained this week by CBC News.

Hells Angels lose bid to derail B.C. clubhouse forfeiture

The Director of Civil Forfeiture seized the Nanaimo Hells Angels clubhouse in Nov. 2007 and commenced proceedings in Nov. 2012 against the East End and Kelowna clubhouses. A legal challenge to stop the province’s attempt to seize the clubhouses was thrown out of court

The Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and seven members have failed to have the province’s attempt to seize three of their clubhouses thrown out of court.

In a roughly 15,000-word ruling in advance of his decision in the civil forfeiture case, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Barry Davies rejected the Angels’ arguments that their rights had been violated in the proceedings to grab their properties in Nanaimo, the East End of Vancouver and Kelowna.

The fulcrum of the petition was the legality of the RCMP’s disclosure to the Civil Forfeiture Office of information gleaned from “Project Halo,” “Project E-Pandora” and “Project E-Predicate” — investigations involving the motorcycle enthusiasts.
