Alleged Hells Angels Member Arrested After Lengthy Drug Investigation
10 people, including an alleged member of the Hells Angels, are facing charges following a lengthy drug and weapons investigation. Arrests were made following the search of two homes in Edmonton, and one in St. Albert last month by the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT). Investigators say that officers involved in the searches found a loaded handgun, body armor, and police scanners, as well as a Hells Angels vest containing drugs.
