SAINT-MICHEL-DES-SAINTS, Que. - A Quebec man with alleged Hells Angels ties who had been wanted on murder charges for the past four years was arrested north of Montreal early Saturday.

Frederic Landry-Hetu is facing charges in connection with Operation SharQc, a massive 2009 police operation aimed at crippling criminal biker activity in the province.

The 44-year-old was tracked down by police around 4 a.m. Saturday at a chalet in Saint-Michel-des-Saints in Quebec's Lanaudiere region.

Gregory Gomez, a spokesman for Quebec provincial police, said Landry-Hetu was apprehended peacefully.

"He showed no resistance when he was arrested by our tactical SWAT team," Gomez said.

Landry-Hetu was scheduled to appear in a Montreal court Saturday via video conference to face charges that include gangsterism, drug trafficking and murder.

Over 150 arrest warrants were issued in the sweeping SharQc police operation, which has targeted individuals with alleged ties to the Hells Angels. A dozen people are still being sought by police.

The operation has involved raids by the RCMP, and provincial and municipal police with arrests in Quebec, New Brunswick, France and the Dominican Republic.
