Fredericton Hells Angel charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking
CBC is reporting that "A Fredericton man, identified by RCMP as a full-patch member of the Hells Angels, has been charged with drug and firearm offences in connection with a joint-police investigation that resulted in a heavy police presence in the city's downtown this week. Robin Moulton, 48, was arrested on Tuesday at around 7:20 a.m. while driving on the Trans-Canada Highway near Woodstock, RCMP Cpl. Jullie Rogers-Marsh said late Thursday afternoon."
"Outlaw motorcycle gangs are a national priority for the RCMP," said Rogers-Marsh. Evidently not. It certainly does appear to be a priority for the RCMP in the Maritimes but it sure doesn't appear to be a priority for the RCMP in British Columbia. After the Kelowna Summer Jam that saw David Giles and Johnny Newcome busted the RCMP in BC stopped targeting the Hells Angels. Instead they are providing police protection for the Hells Angel drug dealers on the Surrey strip. Perhaps we should bring some of the RCMP from the Maritimes here.
CBC is reporting that the trial has been relocated from Woodstock to to Saint John, NB. Turns out that a hunting rifle with a silencer was also seized.
