Hells Angel Justino 'Nino' Pace agrees to forfeit drug lab - flashback

Justino Pace
Its 2016 and Sergeant at arms for the Haney Hells Angels Justino Pace told the press he was “annoyed” that the government was suing him over a rented property where cops busted a drug lab. “I was so shocked by things that came out of that place,” Pace said. “I didn’t even think they could put so much stuff in there.” He said he doesn’t recall who was renting the property at the time. Pace subsequently agreed to forfeit his share of the Mission property. The government said that under a consent order filed in B.C. Supreme Court, the Civil Forfeiture Office received $23,000 in net proceeds from the sale of the building.

The single-level, 3,150-square-foot industrial unit at 7191 Horne St. was sold for $229,000. Most of the cash went to pay off a mortgage.
“I’m so annoyed. I’m annoyed right now just thinking about it, that they could even do this.” He added: “It’s just so ugly"
Pace’s troubles began in September 2014, when a fire broke out on the property and the local fire department responded. Firefighters saw white smoke pouring from the building and chemicals consistent with a synthetic drug lab and called in the cops. Police said at the time that it was one of the largest illegal drug labs in B.C. history. The suit said that Pace’s company financed the purchase of the property in 2008 in part with a mortgage. The City of Mission spent hundreds of thousands of dollars cleaning up the Horne Street property.
No mention made of a drug lab on the premises. A body ought to note the industrial ventilation system half torn down ... it stands out too starkly in this dump. Somebody made some expensive lab type renovations/additions at some point.
And the landlord knows NADA, not even the name of the dopes he 'rented' to? Riiiiiight
