Hells Angels is arguably the world’s largest “outlaw motorcycle gang”. With thousands of members across 463 charters in 56 countries, they aren’t really the favorite guys of law enforcement. In the past several months, authorities in Australia, Canada, Germany, and the US, have been coming down heavily on the club and several other major one-percenter clubs.
And today, we’re reporting yet another set of raids carried out in Canada.
As many as nine houses and ten vehicles were searched by special police squads as part of these raids. The houses and vehicles searched are allegedly used by the club to move drugs across cities and borders.
The raids were orchestrated by ENCRO.
ENCRO is a joint organized crime squad of Sûreté du Québec. A total of more than 120 law enforcement officers took part in these raids, also including members from the Provincial Police, the Laval Police, the Montreal Police, and the RCMP. The recent raids were fifth in a series of similar raids targeting drug trade and organized crime, under Project Objection.
Nine different locations were searched simultaneously.
The vehicles and houses were located in Saint-Placid, Chénéville, Val-des-Monts, Thurso, Roxton Falls, Roxton Pond, Bois-des-Filion, Terrebonne, and Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu. One of the houses raided in Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu is believed to be the clubhouse of a local Hells Angels chapter.
