Hells Angels associate, another man charged with cocaine trafficking

Tuesday, 24 July 2012

undercover police investigation has led to cocaine trafficking charges against a Hells Angels associate and a Chilliwack man. Kristopher Pfeifer, 31, who police believe was working for the bikers' Haney chapter, and Constantinos Anthony, 48, made their first court appearance July 20 and have been released on conditions. They are due back in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court Sept. 7. Both were first arrested by investigators with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. CFSEU's probe, dubbed Project E-Nuptial, targeted drug brokers and traffickers with links to the Hells Angels' Haney chapter. "The objective was to disable drug-based trafficking activity in the Lower Mainland and in particular in the Maple Ridge area," Sgt. Bill Whalen said. The investigation dates back to March 2011 when one of the accused was seen exchanging a package with another man in Pitt Meadows. Police arrested the individuals and seized one kilogram of cocaine. "Biker gangs are no different from other organized crime groups that often distance themselves from direct criminal activity by using associates to facilitate their crimes," Whalen said. "Even though these groups use non-members to conduct their criminal business, it's the members of these groups that benefit the most." Both Pfeifer and Anthony have previous history with police. Pfeifer was charged with assault in Whistler in 2007. The case was resolved with a 12-month peace bond. Anthony, who lives in Chilliwack, was charged with trafficking in Vancouver in 2003, along with Sean Doak. Anthony was later acquitted. Doak was convicted of trafficking and is still wanted in the U.S. in a separate drug smuggling case.
