24 arrested tied to Hells Angels drug trafficking in Montreal



CTV is reporting that "The organized crime section of the SPVM carried out a wave of arrests Wednesday in connection with Project Asterios targeting alleged drug trafficking by bikers. Police arrested 24 people with cooperation from the Granby, Longueuil and Quebec City police forces."

"The arrests come after a series of SPVM searches in Nov. 2018 targetting the Hells Angels-affiliated Minotaures West Montreal motorcycle club that was suspected of leading a heroin and cocaine distribution ring. The investigation was initiated following a series of fentanyl overdoses in Montreal in the summer of 2017. In total, 40 searches were carried out that resulted in massive drug seizures including 11 kilograms of cocaine, five kilos of MDA, close to 600,000 methamphetamine tablets, eight firearms and $122,460."

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "The investigation was launched after a wave of overdose deaths linked to fentanyl were recorded in Montreal during the summer of 2017. At the time, Montreal police said they would trace the path the drug took in the case of each overdose and target those individuals and networks responsible for its sale and distribution." Why don't we do that? That saves lives. Quebec arrests Hells Angels associates for drug trafficking. BC doesn't.

  1. "Montreal police said they would trace the path the drug took in the case of each overdose and target those individuals and networks responsible for its sale and distribution."

    Wow, an actual professional investigation.....who'd have thought they'd try THAT.....B.C. is bought and paid for.

    1. Exactly. It is the natural conclusion and solution to fentanyl overdoses. That's why BC isn't doing it. It would save lives.

    2. They should be following/tracing the path in each DEAL and target those individuals and networks responsible for sale and distribution.

      The Minotaures are just a front for the HA - a layer of insulation.

  2. When fent. hit the streets some years ago, the B.C. Lieberals sat around and did nothing. In Alberta they at least banned pill presses. In B.C. nothing.

    it would appear the Quebec police did a lot of "leg work" following the dead/overdosed to where they bought it and then back again. Great police work. Too bad they didn't do it at the start here in B.C. Some one ought to go ask Christie Clark. Of course Quebec has a provincial police force which could have an impact on policing. We could have saved a lot of lives and money

    1. Yes but right now the NDP are doing nothing as well which makes them no better. If someone dies of a fentanyl overdose, the drug dealers should be arrested not given police protection. When law enforcement stops enforcing the law they are like salt that has lost it's flavor. They are good for nothing. The same with politicians who promote themselves without fixing the problem.
