Another Oshawa Hells Angels drug ring busted
Project Kingfisher with the Durham police and the BEU has netted a full patch member of the Hells Angels and a whole ship load of prospects and associates trafficking cocaine in the Region that had ties to Toronto and Hamilton. Shawn Campbell is the Oshawa full patch member of the Hells Angels arrested. Michael Cudmore from a Hells Angles support club called the North End Crew in Hamilton was also arrested. We have more news coming about the Hells Angels connection to organized crime in Hamilton.
Two of the Oshawa associates were also charged with trafficking crack. All this drug debt violence connected to the Hells Angels in Oshawa and Pickerington has to make you wonder about the dungeon they found there not long ago. Here’s a picture of Shawn Campbell at the Don. Looks like he’s familiar with prison.
In 2007, Project Merlin netted 48 kilos of cocaine and twelve suspects including a full-patch member of the Hells Angels and a baggage handler at Pearson airport. Jeremy Brown, 30, a full-patch member of the Oshawa Hells Angels and Jason McGee, 28, an associate Hells Angels member were arrested in that bust.
We do remember the Hells Angels clubhouse in Oshawa was seized under criminal organization legislation. That seizure was upheld by the courts and the clubhouse was demolished as a result.
