Hells Angels Neil 'Nitro' Cantrill guilty

Hope resident Richard Houle grew pot for Edmonton Hells Angel Neil Cantrill for over a dozen years. When Houle told Cantrill in December 2014 that he wanted to get out of the business, he didn’t think there would be a problem.

There was a problem on Aug. 1, 2016, when Houle was grabbed by Cantrill, his son Stephan and associate Robert Lowry. Houle was brutally beaten and told he would have to sign his house over. All three were convicted last month of aggravated assault, kidnapping, extortion, forcible confinement and overcoming resistance. Cantrill was a member of the Alberta Nomads chapter but has joined Edmonton's Westridge chapter.
Neil Patrick Cantrill, ‘Nitro’ is an Edmonton Hells Angels. He is charged along with Stephen Cantrill and Robert Lowry for an August 2016 incident in Hope. He faces charges including aggravated assault, kidnapping, unlawful confinement or imprisonment and extortion. The trial is going ahead two years after the originally scheduled trial date. Slated for April 2018, the trial was delayed as the three fired their lawyer. There is a publication ban in place. Cantrill’s history includes a $1,000 fine for possession of live rattlesnakes.
