"Outlaw motorcycle gangs are a national priority for the RCMP," says Cpl. Jullie Rogers-Marsh, Media Relations Officer for the RCMP in New Brunswick. "Many of these groups and their support clubs are interconnected. They are not restricted by provincial jurisdictions and have national and international associations.
"The results of this investigation are an example of our ongoing efforts regarding the Hells Angels Nomads N.B. and other outlaw motorcycle gangs, and why it is so important to deter these crime groups."
This investigation is the result of an RCMP-led joint force operation in partnership with the Canadian Border Services Agency, Saint John Police Force, Fredericton Police Force, Kennebecasis Regional Police Force and Edmundston Police. New Brunswick's law enforcement community is working together to specifically target outlaw motorcycle gangs in our province. This arrest is a reflection of our collaborative efforts to disrupt and dismantle organized crime groups who are harming our communities with illegal activities.
