Canadian Hells Angels busted in Spain - Update
Four Canadian Hells Angels have been arrested in Spain after allegedly smuggling 500 kilos of cocaine there from Columbia. One of the four Canadians arrested was on the vessel. One of the three men that met the vessel was a known member of the San Diego Hells Angles. These guys are crazy. Normally they get other people to do that kind of work so they don't get implicated. The Vancouver Province has posted a link to the YouTube video of the arrest.
Kim Bolan from the Vancouver Sun is reporting that "Two full-patch members — Jason Cyrus Arkinstall of Mission and Chad John Wilson of Haney — were among the B.C. men arrested in a coffee bar by Spain’s National Police. The other B.C. men facing charges in Spain are Scott Smitna and Michael Dryborough, associates of the Hells Angels in Mission and Haney."
Kim is also reporting that Chad John Wilson of Haney is formally a member of the San Diego chapter of the Hells Angels. Previously it was reported that a member of the San Diego Hells Angels involved in this drug ring was arrested in Spain as well. Arkinstall has an extensive criminal record mostly for assaults in Kelowna and Surrey but was also charged with drug trafficking in Langley back in 2003. Those charges were dismissed. One of Arkinstall's associates was charged in a drug related murder in Cranbrook.
