Alleged Members of La Familia arrested in Edmonton



CBC is reporting that alleged members of the Mexican La Familia drug cartel were arrested in Edmonton. I am somewhat skeptical. They have over a dozen white guys on their facebook page modeling support gear for La Familia International. Sounds like a new name for another HA puppet club to me. Hopefully the police will release some names at their press conference tomorrow. It is somewhat ironic they could support the Whiteboy Posse the same time they support La Familia. One are neo Nazis the other are not. I'm told they're recruiting Natives in Edmonton. Time will tell with regards to their standing with the local groups.



Update: Global is reporting that La Familia’s Alberta president, Jose Antonio Monterrey, was arrested Dec. 11 while trying to board a flight at the Edmonton International Airport. His three alleged associates, arrested in Edmonton, are Peter Alan Griffon, 34, Cody Sterling Tremblett, 28, and Penny Sue Fleming, 34. The Police are reporting that 5 kilos of cocaine and two kilos of MDMA were seized in the bust as well as a few guns with lots of amo. Police claim they supplied drugs to Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Drayton Valley, Lloydminster, and Red Deer. Those are all Hells Angels areas. So are they working for the HA or did the police just clean house for the HAs?

I don't want to sound too cynical but... I just find this so hard to believe. Edmonton? There's not a large Latino population out there. MS 13 is definitely hard core but they are El Salvadorian. They don't even have a large base in Vancouver which is much more multi cultural. I can't help but wonder if this Edmonton group was started by CSIS. After all CSIS created the Heritage Front to monitor right wing extremists. The Winnipeg Rock Machine had a police agent as a senior member. It's all just a little bit weird.

"September 2009 and recommended the development of a national strategy to combat street gangs in Canada. Criminal Intelligence Service Canada’s role in this strategy is intended to strengthen the network of analysts and intelligence officers who collect and share criminal intelligence specifically relating to street gangs across Canada. The objective would be to identify best practices, support street gang experts and produce intelligence products that focus on the threat and risk levels of particular street gangs and identify new trends."

  1. I doubt the HA will attack La Familia, I've read on them. The Colombians operate in Surrey, but low profile.

    These cartels have their own alien codes of conduct, and burn folks alive, cut them to pieces, etc..

    The aging HA could NOT take on La Familia. They are just so bloodthirsty...

  2. La Familia Michoacana Cartel doesn't even exist anymore After el mas loco died La tuta took over and started the Knights Templar Cartel. Any news station would know this if they any research what so ever This Family Gang looks like some mexican guys clothing line so since he's mexican & sells drugs he's automaticity "CARTEL".

    1. Exactly. So why does a small cartel that doesn't even exist any more start aggressively recruiting internationally? Sounds more like CSIS is using their name.

  5. 5-6 years ago a crew by the name Family or something got busted, their leader served time and then moved to Mexico. A comeback?

    1. Perhaps not... none of the same people. no cartel ties, or direct ties to established Mexican gangs in the original Edmonton Family case.

  6. The Mexican mafia uses puppet clubs just like the HA do. Both have been in bed with each other for years. The Mexicans can do things like make super labs in their own country and ship it up for extreme profits. The actual cost to make a gram of meth is less than a dollar. After shipping fees, and being stepped on by other dealers the price goes up. But the bikers were smart in one since, the Mexican meth is purer and they don't take the chance of blowing up a lab. As far as this being a real cartel I doubt it seriously. They don't advertise "brand clubs", the drugs do all the talking for me. An they have been mostly disbanded for a few years now. This guy is a poser looking to be tough and have a name to fall back on. The HA would take this guys jacket and tell him if he wants it back to have their shot caller come and get it.
