Red Lobsters selling crack in Nanaimo
The Nanaimo Daily News and the Vancouver Sun are reporting that Nanaimo RCMP announced on Tuesday they had arrested five men believed to have links to the Red Scorpions.
Officers found $60,000 in cash, ten ounces of crack cocaine, and two ounces of heroin in the vehicles. The next day, police searched a home and seized an additional $6,000 and some crystal meth and cocaine. While police say the group allegedly has ties to the Red Scorpions, they believe just one of them is an active member of the gang.
It was the second time this year an arrest involving the Red Scorpions in Nanaimo made headlines. A man with alleged links to the gang was arrested in January, when police seized cash and drugs.
The Red Scorpions started working for the Hells Angels after the Surrey Six murder. That’s when the Bacon brothers made the logo look like a cheap Karate school resembling the Red Lobsters.
