3 Hells Angels plead guilty to drug trafficking

Louis Matte Three Hells Angels and a member of the Repentigny police pleaded guilty to various drug trafficking charges at the Montreal courthouse. A civilian undercover agent sank the operations.

Stéphane Maheu, 47, bought a six-year prison term. Lawyers suggest Louis Matte should be sentenced to a 22-month prison term. Project Objection, a major investigation into three drug trafficking networks run by the Hells Angels, came to an end only six months after arrests were made in April.

Carmelo Sacco, a 36-year-old, was sentenced to 53 months. The last person to plead guilty on Wednesday was Carl Ranger, a member of the Repentigny police who was suspended following his arrest this year. Ranger acted as a courier for traffickers. Police seized 21 kilograms of cocaine, 200,000 synthetic drug tablets, $ 2.5 million and 34 firearms.
