Police say the 24-year-old is a member of the club's Toronto West chapter

A member of the Hells Angels was arrested Sunday, police say, after officers were called to the area of the biker gang's Niagara Falls clubhouse for reports of a suspicious person.

Investigators took the 24-year-old into custody before bringing him to hospital because they suspected he was under the influence. Officers also seized a quantity of suspected oxycodone.

Police say the man is a member of the club's Toronto West chapter.

He's charged with mischief under $5,000, possession of a Schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking and assault.

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.

Outlaw motorcycle club boss charged with first degree murder on Vancouver Island

CAMPBELL RIVER, Canada — The head of an outlaw motorcycle club based on Vancouver Island has been charged with first degree murder in the 2016 death of a mixed martial arts fighter, in what investigators are calling a “significant” arrest.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia, which investigates gang-related crime in the province, says Richard (Ricky) Ernest Alexander is in custody pending further court proceedings related to the death of John Dillon Brown.

Brown was found dead inside his car about 75 kilometres from Campbell River on March 12, 2016, and his death was deemed a “targeted” homicide.

Police say Alexander is well known as the president of the Devils Army Motorcycle Club based in Campbell River.

They describe the Devils Army as a “one per cent” outlaw motorcycle club formed in Campbell River in 2009.

Police targeting Hells Angels operations seize cocaine, cash and pills in raids

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.

Sentencing begins for Bacchus motorcycle gang members

Convictions stem from incidents in 2012 involving man whose identity is protected by publication ban

A justice of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court has reserved his sentencing decision in the case of three members of the Bacchus Motorcycle Club who have been convicted of extortion and intimidation.

In convicting Patrick Michael James, 51, Duane Jamie Howe, 49, and David John Pearce, 44, Justice Peter Rosinski also found that Bacchus is a criminal organization, the first time that designation has been made in Nova Scotia.

The men were convicted in a trial this summer.

The convictions stem from incidents in 2012 involving a man whose identity is protected by a publication ban.

The man tried to open a chapter of the Brotherhood Motorcycle Club in Nova Scotia. It is not an outlaw gang, but it uses vests and patches similar to those worn by outlaw riders.

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.

Project Forseti informant facing charges had gun for protection, thought it was legal, defence says

Noel Harder thought he was legally allowed to have a gun he’s banned from possessing and needed it for protection from imminent danger, according to his lawyer Linh Pham.

Pham said police officers advised Harder to get a gun for protection. Pham said “dangerous people” were after Harder because he was an informant in Project Forseti – a 2015 investigation into organized crime.

Harder armed himself because he thought he was being set up and was afraid of being kidnapped or hurt after he got “negative vibes” when he met with someone to buy a used TV, Pham said during Harder’s bail hearing Friday.

Harder, 39, is facing 26 weapon-related charges after police received a call on Sept. 25 about a man in the driver’s seat of a Range Rover with a handgun on Powe Street and Rayner Avenue.
