Starting in March police have arrested several Hells Angels members and associated members under sections of the Criminal Code which state they are likely to commit a criminal offence to benefit a criminal organization.
In order to get out of custody, they have to agree to one year peace-bond terms which state they can’t have any contact with any Hells Angels member or associate in the province, a list which includes more than 50 names.
The conditions also include midnight curfews and order not to have gang clothing or other paraphernalia.
Operation Flatlined is the four major bust the Manitoba chapter of the Hells Angels has been hit with since 2006. Flatlined was used as a reference to the Redlined Support Crew, the Hells Angels’ puppet club set up to fight other criminal networks including the Rock Machine.
