|Journal de Montréal indicates at least one person was spotted wearing a Hells Angels Trois-Rivières 'patch' this month.|
If accurate, that could mean three of the five Quebec chapters, Montreal, South, Trois-Rivières, could once again be active. The other two, Sherbrooke and Quebec are believed to still be frozen, a term used to indicate a chapter that cannot field at least six members to maintain operations. The Trois-Rivières chapter has not been active since the 2009 police operation SharQc that crippled the club's Quebec presence.
|Accused drug trafficker and Hells Angel David Giles told undercover police officers that his “brothers” would take over his massive cocaine deal if anything were to happen to him.|
Giles tried to reassure officers posing as a South American drug organization that he had big-time backers for a 500-kilogram cocaine deal worth almost $15 million, federal prosecutor Chris Greenwood said in his opening statement Monday in B.C. Supreme Court. Giles referenced his “family” and “brothers” several times during recorded conversations when the police were pushing for guarantees about payment and distribution of the cocaine.
|When the cops wanted to meet more of Giles’ backers in August 2012, the longtime Hells Angel said he would try to get them to the table.|
The next day, “Mr. Oldham, Mr. Giles and a third individual who the Crown alleges is Damiano Dipopolo are observed doing a walk and talk,” Greenwood said.
|Giles then told police “that he had three long meetings with his family. They are not comfortable coming to the table as they are concerned with respect to conspiracy law and organized crime,”
After the purported drug smugglers continued to push Giles, he brought Oldham to a meeting with some of the cops in Vancouver.|
“He confirmed he was one of Mr. Giles’ brothers and that if something happened, he would take over his spot.”
|Riiiight says we. One wonders how much will be coming outta this trial. Specifically the amazing cat-like abilities of Mr. Damiano Dipopolo. As an aside, we wonder mightily what is going through the head of Mr. Giles. He miraculously avoids an extended term in prison once whilst rubbing shoulders with Mr. Dipopolo, and what happens the second time?|
Perhaps sitting in prison for the next 10 odd years will help him figure out what most have been suspecting for a looooong while already.
|Kevin Van Kalkaren, Murray Elmer Trekofski and Orhan Saydam, charged after police targeted the Hells Angels in an elaborate international sting operation, have entered guilty pleas.|
Five remaining accused re-elected to be tried by judge alone instead of by a jury. They are David Giles, the vice-president of the now defunct Kelowna chapter, Bryan Oldham, the sergeant at arms of the Kelowna chapter, and Hells Angels associates James Howard, Michael Read and Shawn Womacks.
|The investigation, known as E-Predicate, led police to search five locations around B.C. in August 2012. The Hells Angels' clubhouse in Kelowna was among the police targets.|
Officers seized an assault rifle, handguns and nearly $4 million in cash.
|Police said the investigation started in January 2011, when they received information indicating that members of the Hells Angels were prepared to import and traffic 500 kilograms of cocaine.|
Eight years ago, a B.C. Supreme Court judge acquitted Giles of possessing cocaine and of having committed the offence for a criminal organization. Those charges were laid after police seized drugs in a 2005 raid dubbed E-Pandora. His two co-accused were convicted and given prison time.
|What name is 'missing' from this major league operation, where the cops were tipped off about shipments of coke in the hundreds of kilos? How about the name that for damn certain would know all about it, the President of the Kelowna chapter of the Hells Angels, Damiano Dipopolo?|
He has no criminal record, don't be ridiculous. He just keeps on getting richer whilst EVERYBODY around him falls like dominoes, time and time again.
|Lets take this concept further. What HA has the unmitigated stones to sue a blogger for defamation via the ridiculously dirty Suzan El-Khatib? What HA LiarTard can run to the cops claiming her dopey life is in danger by a blogger with no record and instantly get her asshole sucked?|
Citizens here it is ... Damiano Dipopolo is a police informant, has been for years, and is being protected by the fukkin pigs to this very day ... even at the risk of everybody else's fukkin life
|The Hells Angels motorcycle club failed to get back into its headquarters four days after being evicted from the building they rented at the corner of Gage Avenue North and Beach Road. The club brought a motion to court asking to re-enter the building. A judge denied the motion, which was contested by the owner of the property, Greg Tilly.|
Greg Tilley in 2009
|Jaime Stephenson, a lawyer acting for the club, said in an email that "the matter was not disposed of completely and litigation and discussion is ongoing." She has said that the club intends to fight the eviction.|
A club member also asked the judge if members could retrieve personal items from the building, according to a bailiff with Halton Bailiff Services who was involved with the eviction — but that request was also denied.
|A day after being kicked out of their fortified Hamilton clubhouse, the Hells Angels deny they have been negligent in paying rent.|
A local lawyer representing the local Hamilton chapter says the issue is one between the building owner — the clubhouse's landlord — and the person who holds the mortgage on the property and not at all about the club.
|"It's really a situation where they're caught in the middle but again it's not a police issue, it's certainly not a criminal issue," said Jaime Stephenson, a Hamilton lawyer speaking on behalf of the group.|
"They dispute the eviction as well as the basis for the eviction and they specifically deny that they failed to pay their rent."
We get a dozen swiners, each making $ 100k+ per anum, with absolutely NOTHING better to do with their 'Biker Enforcement Unit' time than standing around with their thumbs up their dopey porker assholes as a locksmith drills out a lock. Holy fukking snap my doodle.
|A bailiff, aided by 10 officers from the Hamilton Police Service and OPP Biker Enforcement Unit (BEU) drilled through the front door of Hells Angels' rented and fortified bunker at the corner of Gage Avenue North and Beach Road Thursday morning. The clubhouse is used by the Hells Angels motorcycle club as well as their puppet club, the Red Devils, according to Det. Staff Sgt. Len Isnor|
|The Hamilton motorcycle club will fight the eviction, said lawyer Stephenson. |
"The organization disputes the eviction and the basis for the eviction," she said, calling the matter an owner-tenant disagreement and denying that the club failed to pay its rent. "There will be (civil) legal proceedings to come … hopefully, that will lead to an appropriate resolution."
|Greg Tilley purchased the former Gage Tavern in 2009. Property documents show a $45,000 mortgage charge in 2011 from a numbered company. |
City tax director Larry Friday said the building owner owes the city more than three years worth of back taxes — $69,452 and counting — for the building, whose address is listed as 105 Beach Rd., which is a commercial building with some residential apartments. If those payments remain outstanding, the city has the option of putting the building up for tax sale later this spring, Friday said.
|So there are coincidences and there are HA coincidences. Slim to zero doubt about this particular one this observer believes.|

|Cops expect around 100 members of a 'biker gang' that are coming from across Canada and the United States. “We don’t expect any issues,” said Sgt. Paquet. “We will monitor them and follow them.”|
Sources say the biker gang is the Hells Angels.
|Several of the people involved in the operation of the Rupert Street Limelife dispensary are connected with Brian Oldham, 48, a full-patch member of the Kelowna chapter of the Hells Angels. They include his girlfriend, Shawna Bates, 24.|
|Clarke, 32, said he's the sole owner of four Limelife Society stores in Vancouver. He also owns a dispensary in Nanaimo, where he watched the raid unfold on a live security camera feed.|
