Quebec Government seizes last HA clubhouse

The Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DCCP) has filed the paperwork to seize the last remaining Hells Angels bunker in Quebec. A judge is expected to rule next week on whether the law related to profiting from the proceeds of crime can be applied in the case of the infamous Hells Angels bunker in Lennoxville.

The Journal de Montreal reports that the DCCP is making the claim based on evidence presented in court. The bunker was the scene for 1985 settling of accounts which left five members of the gang dead. The bunker had a multi-layered security system including guard dogs, infrared motion detectors, electric locks, and a central control room. The government has already seized bunkers in Sorel, Longueuil, Lévis and Trois-Rivières.

Four were convicted of the Lennoxville murders, Lessard, Pelletier, Michaud, and later Tremblay.
