ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE
NIAGARA FALLS – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) with Niagara Regional Police Service warn the public that, despite the demolition of the Hells Angels clubhouse, people should exercise caution as outlaw motorcycle gangs continue to operate in the region.
On Jan. 21, 2020, the Niagara Falls Hells Angels clubhouse was demolished to prevent the continuation of criminal activity at that location. The seizure of the property was the result of the 2006 province-wide police investigation, Project Tandem, which led to the arrest of 26 people, including 15 Hells Angels members.
THREE men, including a senior member of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCG), charged following an ongoing investigation into alleged violent and criminal activity
Over $1 million in cash and #3 million in drugs were seized, along with motorcycles, cars, weapons and the clubhouse. The property was proven to have been used for the planning and execution of criminal activities under the guise of legitimate business. This was the first successfully litigated seizure of a Hells Angels clubhouse in Canadian history.
Police advise the public to limit contact with outlaw motorcycle gang members and report illegal activity to local police or to the OPP at 1-888-310-1122. For emergencies, always call 9-1-1. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit an online tip
Over 200 motorcycle riders met at St. Joe Harley Davidson for a poker run bike ride to raise money for Doug Collins, who was seriously injured in an accident on Interstate 29 last month.
“The Ontario Provincial Police, along with our policing partners, have made significant impact to gang activity. Outlaw motorcycle gangs continue to operate in the region and have been linked with drug trafficking, fraud and extortion. We urge members of the public to speak out when they see illegal activities. Together we can ensure a safer Ontario for everyone,” said Detective Inspector Gerry Scherer, Investigation and Support Bureau, Ontario Provincial Police.
