Parrot accused of hurling obscenities

BRIGHTON—An Ontario man ran afoul of provincial police this week after spending a night at home with his pet parrot. Police say they received complaints about loud yelling and threats coming from a home and arrived on the scene expecting to find a domestic incident in progress.

Instead, police say they found the man alone in the home shouting at the bird. They say the man accused the parrot of “beaking off” at him. They say alcohol was a factor.

A parrot in Chandrapur, Maharashtra, was detained by police on Tuesday after an old woman filed a complaint against it for making obscene remarks at her. Janabai, who is in her 80s, filed the complaint with the police in Rajura city of Chandrapur District, saying the parrot had been tutored by its owner to shower abuses at her whenever she passed by his house. The parrot, named Hariyal, is owned by Janabai's stepson Suresh. A complaint was also registered against him.

The police had called the agitated woman, her son and the parrot to the police station to verify the complaint. However, the police said the parrot did not utter a word when his cage was brought near Janabai at the police station.

Canadians charged after 95 kilograms of cocaine found on cruise ship - Update II

Karim Abu AichiKarim Abu Aichi, 31, launched a short lived 'Go Fund Me' page for the defense of Isabelle Lagace and Melina Roberce. The page has been pulled.

He was arrested in 2011 with 24 others in connection with operation Carcan, an operation targeting the Hells Angels on the South Shore of Montreal. He was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to two years in prison for conspiracy, drug trafficking and gangsterism.
________________________________

Melina Roberge, 22, and Isabelle Lagacé, 28, are from Quebec.
In 2011, the Sûreté du Québec noted for the first time that Canadian and Quebec-based cocaine traffickers had an interest in Australia, during an investigation targeting individuals linked to the Hells Angels and an Irish organized crime group in Montreal.

During a bail hearing in May 2015, a Sûreté du Québec investigator explained that in this region of the world, a kilogram of cocaine cost three times as much as in Canada “because of the difficulty of getting it in.”

Melina Roberge - Estimated cost of the Princess cruise was $ 20,000 per ticket.

The investigator noted that in their probe, one of the members, Frederic Lavoie, who has since been killed, exchanged encrypted text messages with an individual who asked if he had any drug mules available to send to Australia.

It was reported each kilogram of cocaine could be worth $160,000 in Australia.

Police in Sydney have arrested three Canadian cruise ship passengers on charges of drug smuggling.

Authorities found $31 million worth of cocaine in the passengers' luggage -- representing the largest seizure in Australia of narcotics carried by passengers of a cruise ship or airliner. Andre Tamine, 63, Isabelle Lagace, 28 and Melina Roberce, 22 were arrested Sunday after the M-S Sea Princess berthed in Sydney.
The Sea Princess is part of the Princess Cruises fleet which had started its journey in Southampton, England. Police believe it's a case of an organized crime syndicate attempting to supply large quantities of cocaine to Australia.

Officers initially searched one cabin where they found a suitcase containing about 35 kilograms of cocaine in numerous packages and then searched another cabin where they found suitcases containing a further 60 kilograms of the drug. The trio will remain in custody until their next appearance on October 26. The maximum penalty for drug importation in Australia is life imprisonment.


Thieves use chainsaws to down power poles and strip copper in Surrey

BC Hydro says thieves risked death or serious injury by cutting down two power poles with chainsaws in Surrey. A Spokeswoman said 25,000 volts of electricity was running through a power line when one of the poles was brought down, causing a grass fire on Sunday evening. Their transformers were stripped of copper.

She said the other pole was located on a property where a house was about to be demolished so the power line was turned off, but the thieves would not have known that when they risked their lives. Metal theft is a huge concern because it affects the safety of the public and BC Hydro’s employees while impacting the reliability of the electrical system, the utility said in a news release.

Montreal Mob lawyer Loris Cavaliere linked to HA, Montreal Street Gangs


Leonardo Rizzuto with Loris Cavaliere
The allegations are contained in an affidavit prepared to obtain search warrants last year in Projects Magot and Mastiff, two Sûreté du Québec-led investigations that produced the arrests of nearly 50 people on Nov. 19, including alleged Mafia leaders Leonardo Rizzuto, 47, and Stefano Sollecito, 48.

Salvatore Cazzetta, 61, leader of the Hells Angels in Quebec, was also charged in the investigation in November and, in July, the SQ arrested André (Frisé) Sauvageau, 60, another senior member.

Nicolo Rizzuto Sr. with his defence lawyer Loris Cavalière
When Louis Cavaliere was arrested in November, the SQ alleged his law offices on St. Laurent Blvd in Little Italy were used for multiple meetings between organized crime figures. But according to information contained in the affidavit, Cavaliere was involved in drug-trafficking along with his clients.

Cavailiere was linked to Hasan Eroglu, a close friend of Lorenzo Giordano, who was known to police as the leader of the K-Crew, a group that specialized in selling heroin in Montreal. The K-Crew were involved in a conflict with the Hells Angels about a decade ago. Eroglu was fatally shot, on July 5, 2007. The homicide remains unsolved.
Another informant who was being handled by two Montreal police detectives described a meeting between Cavaliere and Arsene (Big Mouth) Mompoint, 42, a member of the Bo-Gars.

Cavaliere, 62, was part of the roundup in November, but unlike many of the accused, he was granted a conditional release on Dec. 4. One of the conditions he agreed to prevents him from practising as a lawyer while his case is pending. The preliminary inquiry in Cavaliere’s case is scheduled to begin on Oct. 5.

Montreal police say mafia, Hells Angels, and street gangs formed an alliance to control drug trade, and it appears this could not have happened without Loris Cavaliere. “All the crucial decisions were made in his office,” Sûreté du Québec Chief Inspector Patrick Bélanger said.

Hells Angel Neil 'Nitro' Cantrill busted again

Neil Patrick Cantrill, who goes by 'Nitro' in the Hells Angels Nomad Chapter, has been charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping and extortion in connection with an incident in Hope in early August. Stephan Neil Cantrill and Robert Gordon Lowry are also charged.

The three men face one count each of aggravated assault, kidnapping without the use of a firearm, unlawful confinement, extortion and attempting to choke to overcome resistance.
There is a publication ban in effect.
Nine years ago, Neil Patrick Cantrill was accused of large-scale production and distribution of methamphetamine in Alberta, supplying the White Boy Possee. He is a former Rebel, whose last pinch was for illegal possession of live rattlesnakes. He was charged with robbery, extortion, forcible confinement, aggravated assault, uttering death threats and two counts of assault with a weapon, along with Deveron McKay, the founder of the Edmonton Hells Angels chapter, and Allen Farago, a Hells Angel from Saskatoon, after a May 1998 complaint by a man who claimed three men, one in Angels colours, stormed his home and forced him to surrender property to pay a debt.

In 2003, he faced weapons and drug charges that were later dropped due to an invalid warrant. During the early-morning raid, police seized an RCMP uniform shirt, a Taser, four bulletproof vests, a switch-blade knife, a loaded .380-calibre semi-automatic pistol, a loaded 12-gauge pump-action shotgun, three grams of methamphetamine and $1,700 cash in a safe.
That same year his robbery and extortion charges from 1998 were stayed.

Mounties say current membership of the HA in B.C. is around 120 full patch in nine chapters. The Cantrills and Lowry are next due in Chilliwack provincial court Sept. 26.

Thieves make cash machine withdrawal in St. Louis, SK

A heist played out last Sunday morning in St Louis, SK. An Automated Teller Machine was stolen from the Affinity Credit Union, around 5:20a.m. while local residents watched the whole thing unfold.

Three men in a white Dodge truck backed up to the front door of the bank. They smashed the front door and attached a yellow tow rope to the ATM.
The rope broke on their first attempt. The second attempt was successful and the truck dragged the ATM down the street.

The men stopped the truck several times and attempted to lift the ATM into the back of the truck, but the machine was too heavy. A second pick up arrived to assist. Both trucks were last seen heading east on highway 25 toward Birch Hills. St Louis is about half an hour south of Prince Albert.
Earlier this year, Mounties asked for help solving nearly a dozen ATM thefts in rural Saskatchewan. ATM thefts have become so rampant in Alberta that the RCMP have a dedicated team of officers to investigate them.

Dangerous offender who escaped while on day leave recaptured

Darrell Moosomin was arrested Sunday evening, August 21 after Killam RCMP received reports that a man matching Moosomin’s description was seen hitchhiking on Highway 13 just east of Daysland. Moosomin was arrested without incident.
Darell MoosominRCMP have obtained a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of a prisoner who failed to return to a minimum security federal institution.

Officers said Darell Moosomin was granted day leave from the Pê Sâkâstêw Centre in Maskwacis on Saturday to attend the Samson powwow. He was escorted by an elder, but sometime Saturday evening the elder lost sight of Moosomin. He has not been seen since. Moosomin was declared a dangerous offender in 2008.
The Pê Sâkâstêw Centre
Moosomin, 54, is serving an indeterminate sentence for sexual assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, failing to comply with a probation order, operating a motor vehicle while disqualified and obstruction of a police officer.

He also had sentences previously for escape lawful custody, assault, break enter and assault, aggravated assault, forcible confinement, and uttering threats. Moosomin has approximately 74 convictions dating back to 1979. Police are warning the public not to approach Moosomin.

Carfentanil, new player in the opioid war: Elephant tranquilizer

A 10 milligram dose of the animal tranquilizer carfentanil is powerful enough to sedate, even kill, a 15,000-pound African elephant. If diluted sufficiently, a dose of the same size — the fraction of the weight of a paper clip — could also send 500 humans to the morgue. A dose as small as 20 micrograms would be fatal to humans.

Carfentanil is an analog of fentanyl. It is 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 5000 times more potent than pharmaceutical grade (100% pure) heroin, making it one of the most potent known and the most potent commercially used opioid. Carfentanil was first synthesized in 1974. Heroin cut with carfentanil offers a harder-hitting, longer-lasting high and allows dealers a very cheap shortcut to increase their supplies.

Border agents had to don hazmat suits to deal with a one kilogram package of carfentanil
Two weeks ago, Mounties announced charges against Joshua Wrenn, 24, who was on the receiving end of a one kilogram package of carfentanil shipped from China. The Canadian Border Services Agency and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they found the drug hidden in a box labeled as printer accessories. They charged Wrenn with one count of importing a controlled substance and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The package, authorities said, could have produced 50 million doses.

Authories display 1 Kg of salt to show how much carfentanil was seized.
Yesterday CNN reported a spike in overdoses in Cincinnati. In New Jersey 29 people overdosed between Tuesday and Thursday in Camden. In Indiana, 13 people overdosed Tuesday in Jennings County alone. In Kentucky 12 people overdosed Wednesday in Montgomery County.

Heroin contaminated with carfentanil was also reported in Florida causing a massive spike in overdoses there.
Like fentanyl, carfentanil can be absorbed through the skin or inhaled, and contact with even a grain could be enough to require medical attention in humans.

Carfentanil is readily available on-line from any number of Chinese suppliers.

Canadian Terrorist Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury killed


Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury lying face down after being killed in a police raid in Narayanganj yesterday.
Police in Bangladesh killed three suspected militants Saturday, including a man they identified as a Canadian accused of masterminding a deadly attack on a cafe in Dhaka last month. Police raided a two-story house in Narayanganj district near Dhaka and killed the suspects early Saturday. The dead included Tamim Chowdhury, a Bangladeshi-born Canadian, who police believe was one of two masterminds of the July 1 attack on a popular restaurant in Dhaka that left 20 people dead.
Tamim identified himself as Shaykh Abu Ibrahim Al-Hanif, the "Amir of the Khilafah's Soldiers in Bengal," in the 12th issue of Islamic State's propaganda magazine Dabiq in November last year. According to police, Tamim masterminded the Gulshan and Sholakia attacks.

Bangladeshi Police announced a 20 lakh ($ 30k) bounty on Tamim on August 1.

Christopher Wayne Hudson - the "Ballroom Blitz"

March 18, 2006. Members of the Finks and Hells Angels clash at a kickboxing tournament. Dubbed the "Ballroom Blitz", the bloody incident was sparked by the defection of one-time Fink and soon-to-be convicted murderer Christopher Wayne Hudson to the Hells Angels in a move that angered his former gangmates.

Hudson, a former Gold Coast nightclub bouncer, “patched over” to the Angels some time in late 2004.

Hudson was shot in the back and jaw and other bikies were wounded during the brawl that involved fists, feet, bottles, chairs and weapons.

Following the "Ballroom Blitz" Hudson became a heavy, daily user of amphetamines and crystal amphetamine. Hudson also started carrying a gun and admitted to paranoia thinking that someone was "coming to get him”.

Christopher Wayne Hudson
With a fearsome reputation, Hudson was afforded VIP status at strip clubs. He received free drinks and mingled with the girls privately.

It was Sunday June 17, 2007 and Hudson was riding an amphetamine-fuelled flying carpet. He exploded into a rage, fuelled by a caustic mix of booze and drugs. Hudson pulled up his sleeves and pointed to his tattoos and said: ‘Do you know who I am? I’m a Hells Angel!’ In front of shocked witnesses, Hudson grabbed his girlfriend by her hair, punched her in the face and threw her to the ground. As the stunned victim struggled to her knees, Hudson kicked her in the face.
In a nearby underground carpark, Hudson forced another woman against a wall at gunpoint. 43-year-old father of three Brendan Keilar stopped to intervene while on his way to work. A passing Danish backpacker named Paul De Waard, 26, also stepped in to help.

After emptying his gun into the men, Hudson fled. Keilar died while de Waard was very lucky to survive.
Police quickly established Hudson’s identity and launched a massive manhunt. Police chief commissioner Christine Nixon sent a public message to the Hells Angels: “I would hope they would hand him over. I think this person’s clearly out of control.”

On June 20, the Victorian president of the Hells Angels walked Hudson into Wallan police station in semi-rural Victoria. Hudson had an injured wrist wrapped in a sock. His bikie brothers had used a blow torch to remove a Hells Angels tattoo from his arm. In May 2008, Hudson pleaded guilty to the murder of Brendan Keilar and was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 35 years before becoming eligible for parole.
