Mule gets 5 1/2 years for delivering fentanyl and cocaine
Kamloops this Week is reporting that "A Vancouver father of four who began transporting large quantities of fentanyl and cocaine after work dried up in Alberta’s oilsands will spend more than five years in a federal prison. Pedro Dwayne Kematch, 35, was sentenced on Thursday in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops after pleading guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking."
"Prior to his arrest, court heard, police became aware Kematch was part of a large-scale drug trafficking group transporting fentanyl and cocaine from B.C. to other provinces." "On Feb. 28, 2015, an Acura being driven by Kematch was pulled over for speeding near Kamloops. Inside, police found a backpack and a hidden compartment containing 9,950 fentanyl pills and 487 grams of cocaine. Federal Crown prosecutor Anthony Varesi said the fentanyl pills had been stamped to look like counterfeit Oxycontin."
"Stamped to look like counterfeit Oxycontin." That is the root of the problem. Giving people fentanyl when they ask for Oxycontin is bad business just like giving someone fentanyl when they ask for cocaine. This large-scale drug trafficking group transporting fentanyl and cocaine from B.C. to other provinces could only be the Hells Angels. Now they'll just get another mule.
This was a VPD operation not a GTF op. "Thirty-six year old Jason Heyman is facing the most charges – seven of possession for the purpose of trafficking and five for gun possession. Dennis Halstead, 36, is facing four for trafficking and one of possession of a restricted firearm. Cameron Mak, 40, and Charleen Flintroy, 47, are each charged with seven trafficking counts and one for possession of a restricted firearm. Tara Marshall and Pedro Keymatch, both 32, are facing possession for the purpose of trafficking charges only." The GTF doesn't bust HA drug rings.
Dennis Alexander Halstead and Jason James Heyman had all their charges dropped by a corrupt judge. "It was determined that several raided properties, including Halstead’s home on Rochester Street in Coquitlam, Heyman’s Surrey apartment on King George Boulevard and a property on Ewen Street in New Westminster (believed to be a drug stash house) were considered warrantless searches. The Crown, however, argued police acted in good faith and proceeded with a reasonable belief as to the validity of their warrants." AYFKM? They had warrants.
Search warrants are based on just cause. They obviously had just cause to search because they were right. This judge is a traitor to the public interest. Justice James Williams presided over the Robert Picton murder trial. He was the one that told the jury they could convict Pickton even though he was not the prime suspect just an active participant. Williams is former RCMP.
