Kelowna Hells Angels friend waits sentencing for cocaine trafficking
OK here’s the one I promised. Remember how we were all upset about that case in Kelowna where a guy got house arrest for trafficking cocaine? Well his co accused is waiting to get his sentence and everyone is hoping it will be a bit more realistic given the nature of the offense.
His partner got off with a light sentence, but Darryl James Wilcox will likely do serious jail time for selling 18 kilos of cocaine. Relatively speaking of course. The West Kelowna man was found guilty last month of possession for the purpose of trafficking. The drug haul was one of the largest ever seized in the Central Okanagan.
So if it was the largest cocaine seizure ever in the Central Okanagan, who was he selling for? That large of a shipment certainly isn’t an independent distributor. The violent fight over the drug trade in British Columbia simply wouldn’t allow it.
Coincidently enough, he has many friends that are Hells Angels and Hells Angels associates. He’s friends with Russell Penner, the Kelowna cyst that was involved in that large meth lab for the Hells Angels. He’s friends with the Goldammers. One is a full patch member of the Hells Angels, the other has a motorcycle shop. He’s even friends with dirt bag Rob Thomas. The petty thief from Ontario that joined the Hells Agnels in Kelowna and has been arrested for the murder of Dain Philips.
Darryl Wilcox is not a member of the Hells Angels but we know with that many friends who are, he wasn’t selling for the competition. Which simply reinstills the submission that the Hells Angels are the real plague behind the violent fight over the cocaine trade in BC. Which brings us back to the Kelowna Summer Jam that was kicked off with Joey Verma's murder trial. Don't look now, but you've been Thunderstruck.
