8 alleged Hells Angels were arrested in eastern Ontario. Blaine Doner got seven years for selling cocaine for the Hells Angels in Ottawa while Craig Haines got 10 years. That's a lot more than a few months of house arrest. No wonder we have a problem in BC. The federal laws are not enforced the same here as they are in other provinces.
The key point in those cases is the fact that it was a violent bid to take over the drug trade in Brockville. In 2007, police discovered the Ottawa-based chapter of the biker gang was trying to take over the cocaine trade in Brockville, Gananoque and Prescott. As well as Leeds and Grenville. Let's not forget Niagara.
Police launched Project Beckenham, a 30-month investigation by the OPP Biker Enforcement Unit resulting in eight arrests and seizures of cash, drugs and weapons.
The ring was allegedly run by full-patch Nomad member Mario Sincennes and Haines, who was described during court proceedings as being a gang “hang around.”
