Hells Angels MC

BY: Don Plant

Canada - KELOWNA - The weekend take-down of top members of the Hells Angels leaves a vaccuum that organized-crime groups are jockeying to fill.

Police allege eight men in Kelowna and elsewhere in B.C. were growing pot in the Southern Interior and preparing to buy 500 kilograms of cocaine from crime groups south of the border. The arrests send a warning that organized criminals should expect similar raids.

"There's a number of projects ongoing in the area," RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon said Tuesday. "We've got more good stuff coming."

Still, criminologists say the raids will open doors for more operators in the illegal drug trade. Demand for cocaine and other substances stays the same, and the remaining players will make higher profits because prices will rise.

McKinnon agrees, to a point.

"I think we've made a considerable dent by taking some of the biggest players off the streets," he said. "But there's always somebody wanting to seize the opportunity."
