Abbotsford Police bust full-patch member of Hells Angels with coke and cash

Friday, 18 May 2012

Abbotsford Police busted a full-patch member of the Hells Angels in Aldergrove on Wednesday morning with close to a kilogram of cocaine and $26,000 in cash. The APD's drug and gang enforcement units and the provincial outlaw motorcycle gang unit and integrated emergency response team raided a home in the 27000 block of 28 A Avenue in Aldergrove at 7 a.m., said Constable Ian MacDonald. The 50-year-old H.A. member was arrested and faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. The name of the suspect cannot be released until charges are sworn, likely in a couple of weeks, said MacDonald. The 34 ounces of cocaine seized by police has a street value of approximately $45,000, he said, adding the department is pleased with the results of its investigation. "A total of $70,000 in cash and drugs is a fair chunk," said MacDonald. The bust was a result of the APD's mandate to focus on individuals who make the department's top gangster list, said MacDonald. "If people are involved in gangs or drugs and ply their trade in Abbotsford, they are high on our radar," he said. It isn't clear why a full patch member of the Hells Angels, who normally distance themselves from the street trade, would be personally handling cash and drugs, said MacDonald. "In general, perhaps there is the same flux and volatility [in the H.A.] that is going on amongst a lot of gangs right now, as shown by the recent increased violence," said MacDonald. "That volatility can lead to organized crime and gangs trying to consolidate and trying to earn as much as they can . . . trying to increase sales to generate more cash and get additional feet on the street."
