Hells Angels back in Nova Scotia

The Hells Angels are back in Nova Scotia and police are expecting to see fully patched members across the province. The Hells Angels Halifax chapter was formed in 1984.

In 2001, police raided the Hells Angels clubhouse on Dutch Village Road in Halifax. 20 people were arrested and the clubhouse was ultimately seized – leading to the chapter folding. A Hells Angels hang-around club was formed last year along Highway 7 in Musquodobit Harbour, N.S.
David ‘Hammer’ Macdonald is being held responsible for bringing the Hells Angels back to Nova Scotia. Police say the London biker helped about 15 members of the Gatekeepers, a puppet club, move a key step closer to becoming full patch Hells Angels by awarding them hang-around status in June, 2016. The next step is becoming a prospect. Macdonald has established a lengthy resume in creating outlaw biker clubs. For years, he was president of the Outlaws in London, bitter rivals to the Hells Angels.

When the Hells Angels moved into Ontario, Macdonald left his position as president of the London Outlaws and patched over to the rival club in 2001. 12 of the hang-around Hells Angels travelled to London last May to “kiss the hands of his new masters,” and returned with black vests carrying a red and white patch that reads London.

Former Quebec customs officer pulls 11 years for cocaine smuggling

Former Quebec customs officer Stefanie McClelland has been sentenced to serve 11 years in prison for her part in a cocaine smuggling incident at the Lacolle border crossing three years ago. The 40-year-old was found guilty by a jury in May of illegal drug smuggling and breach of trust for letting 182 kilograms of cocaine through the border checkpoint in 2014.
In December 2014, the RCMP also arrested Gregory Singh, a 28-year-old man from Kirkland, and Ariane Desgroseilliers-Lafrance, a 24-year-old woman from Montreal. The three arrests came after authorities uncovered a preconceived plot to smuggle the cocaine across the border. Among the evidence against McClelland was a text message between her and the leader, informing him that she was posted at a designated NEXUS customs booth.
Seven minutes after she sent the text, a BMW pulled up and was let through after 36 seconds and no passport check.

Montreal man smuggled guns through library straddling Canada-U.S. border

A Montreal man was brought to the U.S. to face charges he smuggled handguns into Canada, including some that were hidden in the bathroom of a public library that straddles the nations' border. Alexis Vlachos, 40, was taken into custody in Canada and then arrested by U.S. authorities on May 31 at the Canadian border. Between July 2010 and April 2011, Vlachos smuggled about 100 handguns that had been purchased from licensed dealers in Florida into Canada via Vermont
In one instance, Vlachos retrieved handguns that had been left for him in the Haskell Library, which straddles the border in Derby Line, Vt., and Stanstead, Que. The entrance to the library is in Vermont and Canadians can visit the library without going through a port of entry. He pleaded not guilty earlier this month in federal court in Vermont, and he was being held pending trial.

If convicted, Vlachos faces up to 20 years in prison.

Charges dropped against trio accused in $4.5M cocaine trafficking case

Three men accused of trafficking 45kg of cocaine have been let off because it took too long to get to trial, a Calgary judge has ruled. Christopher Scher, Michael Janecek and Steven Doporto were arrested in January 2014 and faced charges of conspiracy to import cocaine, conspiracy to traffic cocaine, trafficking cocaine and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The Supreme Court's "Cody" decision released last Friday, doubled-down on the principles of its Jordan ruling last year, upholding an accused drug dealer's bid to have his case thrown out because he had to wait five years for a five-day trial. On Thursday the judge agreed with defence lawyers, and said he'd been given a "clear roadmap" by the Supreme Court.

At the time of their arrest, ALERT claimed Scher, Janecek and Doporto were the heads of a drug-trafficking operation. "The trio was believed to be major cocaine distributors in Southern Alberta and routinely used couriers to import cocaine from the southern United States," said ALERT in its January 2014 release.

John "Sonny" Franzese, 100, paroled again

John "Sonny" Franzese is blind, deaf and confined to a wheelchair. Now aged 100, he was released from prison on Friday in Massachusetts, where he was the oldest inmate to be incarcerated in the United States. John "Sonny" Franzese spent much of his adult life entering and leaving prison, having been paroled at least six times. His last incarceration was in 2010, at the age of 93; He was convicted in a ransom case involving New York dance clubs.

Raised in New York City, in the late 1930s Franzese joined the Profaci crime family (later named the Colombo crime family) under boss Joseph Profaci.
Franzese bore a close physical resemblance to boxer Rocky Graziano, one of his friends. His first arrest came in 1938, for assault. Franzese operated out of New York City and New Jersey and was involved in racketeering, fraud, and loansharking. He is believed to have been elevated to caporegime in the Colombo family in the mid-1950s and by 1964 he had been promoted to underboss.

Carfentanil hits Tennessee, Massachusetts and Nova Scotia

Carfentanil has made its way to Tennessee in the last three weeks. Recently an officer in Ohio almost died just from touching carfentanil, so the Tennessee Highway Patrol said their officers are no longer field testing drugs. THP officers are now wearing gloves and protective clothing to stay safe. They have eight interdiction drug teams across the state, and they recently confiscated 20 pounds of Fentanyl.

"This is a different ball game altogether. If you take something and don't know what it is, you could be dead in one minute." So far the TBI said they have tested 10 samples of carfentanil in Tennessee.
Patrolman Chris Green was called in as backup in East Liverpool, Ohio. Back at the police station later that evening, Green noticed some bits of the powdery white substance on his uniform. He wiped it off with his bare hands. As his fellow cops looked on stunned, Green collapsed. Green’s fellow cops gave him a dose of Narcan in nasal spray form and took him to the hospital, where doctors were forced to administer three more doses.
Drug overdoses killed a record 3,050 people in Ohio in 2015, and 1,155 of those deaths were linked to fentanyl, more than twice as many as the previous year.

The great Canadian BBQ Scam

The great Canadian barbecue scam involves Jefferey Wilson, a 42-year-old Toronto man. Wilson is accused of having visited several Home Depot stores around the Toronto area beginning in May, where he would remove the price tag from an el cheapo Weber barbecue (retail $219.19) and affix it to the Genesis II LX S-440 NG SS, a “high performance” grilling rig amped up stupid by three burners and 43,500 BTUs worth of pure cooking power. The Genesis retails for $1,999.

Wilson would then use a “fraudulently” obtained Home Depot gift card to purchase the deluxe barbecue for the bargain price — before selling it to the highest bidder on classified ad websites. He has been charged with 18 counts of fraud under $5,000.

IS - Red Scorpions busted dealing carfentanil in Red Deer

Police have confirmed that drugs seized in Red Deer in March were a mixture of carfentanil, fentanyl and caffeine, making this the first known seizure of carfentanil in the Red Deer area. Kim Proctor of the Independent Soldiers, Steven Herman of the Red Scorpions, Trina Boudreau-Pritchard and Catherine Nicole Campbell, were arrested and charged as a result.
“Drug dealers don’t care about your health – they’re looking for the biggest profit and they’re working in a system that is run by organized crime,” said Schultz. “Are these really the people you want to trust your life with?

“It’s a drug that is non-discriminating, so if you think it can’t happen to you, you are wrong. If you think that trying it once won’t do anything, you’re wrong. "
