Montreal Bike Cops nab one of America’s most wanted

Two bike cops in Montreal arrested one of America’s most wanted criminals — the alleged ringleader of a drug-smuggling organization who has been on the lam for a dozen years. Katay-Khaophone Sychanta, 35, was collared during an encounter on a bike path patrol in Montreal’s Saint-Laurent. Sychanta tried to run, but was captured after a brief chase.
Sychanta operated a drug-smuggling ring that brought millions of ecstasy pills and hundreds of pounds of marijuana into New York, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts and Georgia. Sychanta has a “history of violence” and has allegedly made threats against Homeland Security Investigation special agents and other law enforcement officials, according to ICE officials. Prior to his arrest, Sychanta was thought to be hiding somewhere in the United States, Canada, Mexico or Asia and was considered armed and dangerous.
