The Hells Angels are back with a vengeance in Quebec.
A provincial police file obtained by the Journal de Montreal says the criminal biker gang now has seven affiliated clubs in this province, with membership totalling 160. That’s on top of the 80 full-patch Hells members active here, in all, a bigger roster than seen during the height of the gang’s activity in the province in the 1990s.
The affiliated clubs are the Devils Ghosts, the Deimos Crew, the Beast Crew, the Headhunters, the Minotaures, Demons Choice and the Dark Souls. Investigators believe members of these clubs do some of the dirty work for the Hells Angels, perhaps hoping to be promoted to full-patch members of the main gang.
The Hells Angels biker gang was driven out of the province by concerted police action several years ago but with this resurgence, the SQ now considers the Hells Angels and its training clubs the top organized crime group in drug trafficking in Quebec.
