Ad on Kijiji opened door for Hells Angels bust

Mark David Heickert
Operation Harley began with Paul Francis Monahan, 63, a member of the Nomads N.B. Monahan posted an ad on Kijiji selling a Harley Davidson on behalf of a full-patch in London. An undercover cop contacted Monahan.

Talk eventually turned to cocaine, which was available for between $48k to $50k per kilo. Cops were monitoring Monahan’s cellphone and learned his contact was Mark David Heickert, a full-patch in Oshawa.
Heickert met with the buyer each time, receiving $47k for one kilo on the first two occasions and $94k for two kilos in the last transaction. After the last deal, police moved in and arrested Heickert. Monahan's home was raided along with the clubhouse in Musquodoboit Harbour.

Heickert pleaded guilty to conspiracy to traffic cocaine, conspiracy to possess proceeds of crime and breaching his release conditions by having contact with a member of the HA. He was sentenced to 55 months in prison.

Monahan pleaded guilty last April and is still awaiting sentencing. He is free on $7k bail.
