|Kevin Van Kalkaren, Murray Elmer Trekofski and Orhan Saydam, charged after police targeted the Hells Angels in an elaborate international sting operation, have entered guilty pleas.|
Five remaining accused re-elected to be tried by judge alone instead of by a jury. They are David Giles, the vice-president of the now defunct Kelowna chapter, Bryan Oldham, the sergeant at arms of the Kelowna chapter, and Hells Angels associates James Howard, Michael Read and Shawn Womacks.
|The investigation, known as E-Predicate, led police to search five locations around B.C. in August 2012. The Hells Angels' clubhouse in Kelowna was among the police targets.|
Officers seized an assault rifle, handguns and nearly $4 million in cash.
|Police said the investigation started in January 2011, when they received information indicating that members of the Hells Angels were prepared to import and traffic 500 kilograms of cocaine.|
Eight years ago, a B.C. Supreme Court judge acquitted Giles of possessing cocaine and of having committed the offence for a criminal organization. Those charges were laid after police seized drugs in a 2005 raid dubbed E-Pandora. His two co-accused were convicted and given prison time.
|What name is 'missing' from this major league operation, where the cops were tipped off about shipments of coke in the hundreds of kilos? How about the name that for damn certain would know all about it, the President of the Kelowna chapter of the Hells Angels, Damiano Dipopolo?|
He has no criminal record, don't be ridiculous. He just keeps on getting richer whilst EVERYBODY around him falls like dominoes, time and time again.
|Lets take this concept further. What HA has the unmitigated stones to sue a blogger for defamation via the ridiculously dirty Suzan El-Khatib? What HA LiarTard can run to the cops claiming her dopey life is in danger by a blogger with no record and instantly get her asshole sucked?|
Citizens here it is ... Damiano Dipopolo is a police informant, has been for years, and is being protected by the fukkin pigs to this very day ... even at the risk of everybody else's fukkin life
