Hells Angels: Police to monitor 40th anniversary weekend bash in Langley
B.C.’s anti-gang Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit will be watching as Hells Angels from across Canada gather this weekend at the Langley clubhouse of one of the bikers’ original chapters.
CFSEU Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said Thursday that his agency will be working with officers from across the province to ensure public safety in light of the major event marking the Hells Angels’ 40th anniversary in B.C.
The Hells Angels’ White Rock chapter own the Langley clubhouse in the 21000-block of 61st Ave. in Langley.
Houghton noted in a news release that the CFSEU “has the mandate to target, investigate, prosecute, disrupt and dismantle the organized crime groups and individuals that pose the highest risk to public safety due to their involvement in gang violence.”
“This includes outlaw motorcycle gangs and their members, and this week’s co-ordinated police response across British Columbia is in support of suppressing and disrupting the outlaw motorcycle gang members’ ability to conduct activities that may put the public at risk,” Houghton said.
