Alleged members of biker gang linked to Hells Angels targeted in raids
Police say they believe members of the Deimos Crew control drug-trafficking ring
Quebec provincial police expect to arrest at least 30 people today in raids targeting a Hells Angels-related biker gang.
Police say the people they are after are members of the Deimos Crew, a gang that allegedly controls a drug-trafficking ring that operates in several regions of Quebec.
Those arrested so far are expected to appear in court later today in Trois-Rivières to face drug-related charges, according to a Sûreté du Québec news release.
More than 200 police officers descended on locations in the Mauricie, Montérégie and central Quebec regions, as well as Portneuf in the Quebec City area, as part of the raids.
The RCMP, several regional police forces, and Revenu Québec are also involved in the operation.
