Allan ‘The Weasel’ Ross
|Blackledge carved out a key role in the murky trade after moving to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the 1970s.
It is believed he met dope smuggler Angel Sanchez, one of the Cali Cartel’s leaders, in 1981 and helped him to deliver his first batch of cocaine to the US the following year. After becoming a trusted ally, Blackledge was introduced in 1986 to Allan ‘The Weasel’ Ross — chief of Canada’s powerful West End Gang. |
Blackledge negotiated for the Montreal group to buy massive shipments of cocaine from Sanchez twice a week. The Weasel introduced Blackledge to the Hell’s Angels and the Scot used his Colombian links to connect the biker gang with cocaine worth millions.
