Noel Harder - HA Rat

Noel Harder decided to become a secret police agent after he got himself busted. He then spent three years testifying as a star witness against fellow drug dealers, gun runners, mobsters and the Hells Angels. Today it's said he’s a marked man with a six figure bounty on his head.

And he’s now on his own. The RCMP kicked Harder out of the federal Witness Protection Program last month.
Harder was one of the highest level criminals in Saskatoon, and is described as a narcissist and sociopath.
Harder's work as a police agent began after he was pulled over while transporting dozens of firearms. At the time, Harder was a senior member of the Fallen Saints Motorcycle Club, a puppet club of the HA.

On Jan. 14, 2014 a joint RCMP-Saskatoon police operation raided 19 locations in seven cities. $8 million worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl were seized. More than a dozen members of the Fallen Saints, and Hells Angels were charged with a variety of offences.

Hindsight suggests Harder was a poor choice as a police agent and witness. "The biggest drug dealer involved was Noel Harder, and they let him go … he should have been the guy charged". Instead Harder was paid $ 500,000. Harder is blaming the RCMP for his current troubles.

Harder agreed to meet CBC News in a secret location for an exclusive interview about Project Forseti. "If somebody was coming to kill me," Harder said, "I’m going to be taking them with me, if not first."

Greyhound fails drug test for cocaine after racing to victory

A prize-winning greyhound failed a drug test for cocaine. Tristar was found to have taken a “clinically significant” amount after running a 480-metre track in under 30 seconds. Trainer William Rae, 70, told a disciplinary hearing his dog had been patted by someone who looked like a drug user. Tristar has since been sold — and won for his new owner.

The million dollar drug lab next door: a Burnaby apartment

Neighbours living beside #407-6893 Prenter St. in Burnaby two years ago couldn't have imagined the scene on the other side of their walls. Inside rental unit #407 drug dealers with an arsenal of weapons were cutting up drugs with Magic Bullet blenders and frying pans.

When police entered with a search warrant in early 2016, they backed out again after finding open fentanyl. The RCMP Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team returned in Hazmat suits to find more than 1.5 kilos of the drug.
Fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, W-18, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, MDMA, ketamine and GHB was seized. The haul included nine firearms, two silencers, $1.5 million in cash, 4.5 kg of heroin, 12 kg of cocaine, and more than 4,500 fake oxycodone pills.

Huge profits are made by selling fentanyl as heroin. This was done by mixing the fentanyl with vinegar and brown food coloring to make it smell and appear like heroin.

One of the dealers, Adam Summers, bragged to an uncover police officer fake heroin was his specialty, accomplished through a washing process that took a day and a half.
Summers and Scott Pipping were found guilty on multiple counts of drug trafficking and possession for the purpose of trafficking; producing a controlled substance and firearms.

They will be sentenced on June 29.

Edmonton biker shot steroid dealer in face to impress Hells Angels

Jason Neilson, 45, was found guilty of attempted murder and several firearms charges after a judge rejected his argument that it was self-defence when he shot Adam Abumeita on Aug. 19, 2016. Abumeita said Neilson came over to his car, and opened the passenger-side door. Neilson was wearing blue rubber gloves as he put a handgun to Abumeita’s temple and fired. The bullet went into Abumeita’s jaw, shattering his teeth. Neilson tried to fire again, but the gun jammed.

Abumeita managed to get out of the car and ran to a nearby business where staff called for help. He nearly went into cardiac arrest and underwent surgery for his wounds, but survived. Both men were one-time Hells Angels “prospects” and were patched members of Tribal, a Hells Angels support club.
Crown prosecutor Richard Tchir argued Neilson should be sentenced to life in prison. “Nothing could be closer to an execution-style shooting,” he said.

UK Gangs - 'Drill Rap'

A drill rap group in London has been issued with a court order that bans them from making music without police permission. Members of 1011 are in a gang and had been imprisoned after admitting a conspiracy to commit violent disorder.

UK drill is a cousin of Chicago drill, a sub-genre of rap. Its lyrics not only describe gang warfare, but sometimes include threats and taunts against named gangs and individuals.
YouTube took down around 30 'Drill Rap' music videos last month following a request from police. Police say a line has very clearly been crossed and the safety of individuals is being put at risk.

Some point to drill music as a driver behind London's wave of violent street crime.

Six plead guilty to HA related Montreal drug-trafficking ring

Six men, including two longtime members of gangs affiliated with the Hells Angels, have pleaded guilty to charges. Éric Paquette, 42, pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and to being part of a conspiracy.

Jean Winsing Barthelus, 39 and Martin Girard, 40, former members of the Syndicate, a street gang affiliated with a Hells Angels chapter in Montreal, pleaded guilty to the same charges.
Seven other people have pleaded guilty to charges related to the same investigation. That includes Alexandra Mongeau, the daughter of former Hells Angels leader Maurice (Mom) Boucher. She recently pleaded guilty to being in possession of the proceeds of crime. She admitted she was being paid a 'tax' from the profits generated by drug trafficking in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. She received a sentence she is currently serving in the community.

Montreal Mafia leaders Leonardo Rizzuto, 49, and Stefano Sollecito, 50, were charged in the same case, but they were acquitted earlier this year.

Holland HA Lysander de Ruiter looking at 14 years

Lysander de Ruiter
When last we left Lysander de Ruiter in 2016 he had been sentenced by a court in Alkmaar to 2.5 years in prison. He was found guilty of illegal firearm possession and assault. The case involved an arsenal of weapons found in a shed in Haarlem. The arsenal included a missile launcher, a grenade, a machine gun, a firearm, ammunition and stolen goods. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team had to be called in to defuse the grenade and rocket launcher.

The latest for de Ruiter and his Haarlem Hells Angels is being accused of participating in a criminal organization. In addition to coercion and extortion, mistreatment, arson, threats, overt violence, firearm possession, drug trafficking, cannabis cultivation and money laundering.

His outburst of rage last week at the court in Osdorp made no impression on the prosecutors in his case. They say the former president of Hells Angels Haarlem should receive a prison sentence of no less than fourteen years.

Cadiz - Spain’s ‘narco town’

Six Cadiz gangs joined forces to form the Castañitas Cartel, headed by siblings Antonio and Francisco Tejon Castano. Recently police busted Antonio.

80% of drug-related arrests in Spain happen in Cadiz which is a major European cocaine conduit.
The brothers brought with them a rise in violence and brazen aggression against police. There have been at least 15 attacks against police vehicles in the last three years. Most recently an ambush occurred in the town of La Linea de la Concepcion. The neighborhood is adjacent to La Atunara, a maze of tiny streets where drug gangs have built “fortresses”. The attack might have been retaliation for the arrest of Antonio Tejon Castano.
Drug violence has been on the exponential rise in the south of Spain. High unemployment and a flood of Colombian cocaine are major reasons.

Mulvey, who controlled the conspiracy using pre-pay mobile phones, was not tried with his co-defendants because he had fled to Spain. He denied any involvement but covert recordings sunk him. A shipment of 20kg of cocaine, 364kg of cannabis and 10kg of cutting agent was seized. It is estimated that over 15 trips in total, up to £68 million in drugs were smuggled through the route.
