NS killer Gabriel Wortman had links to HA - Update

New information says Wortman was a known drug dealer in the Portapique area, where he went on a 13-hour rampage April 18 and 19 that ended with 22 people dead. He had more than links to the HA, he was an active associate in HA business. Described as a “sexual predator”, the feds are under pressure for a full public inquiry into Wortman's crime links.
The man who murdered 22 people in a two-day shooting rampage in Nova Scotia had contacts with drug dealers and the Hells Angels. The RCMP’s first search warrants were signed by Sgt. Angela Hawryluk. A 28-year veteran, Hawryluk stipulated that she is experienced in OMGs, drug trafficking and confidential informants. One cop source said Wortman often spent time with Hells Angels. He had at least one associate with links to organized crime.
Peter Alan Griffon printed the decals that Wortman used on the replica RCMP cruiser he used in his murders. In 2014, Griffon, then 34, was busted by Edmonton police as they brought down a drug trafficking ring operated by the Mexican cartel La Familia and MS-13. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to seven years in prison on Dec. 12, 2017.

Cops seized four kilograms of cocaine, ecstasy, $30k in cash, two .22 calibre rifles, one with a silencer, a .44 calibre Desert Eagle handgun, a sawed-off shotgun, thousands of bullets and body armour from Griffon’s home.
Cops grossly mishandled the murders. They failed to contain Wortman, did not block the highway links to Truro and Halifax and did not issue a provincial alert.
There is speculation Wortman was a police rat. A speeding ticket was issued to Wortman at 5:58 pm on Feb. 12, 2020. Wortman was driving one of the former police vehicles in his collection in a rural area. When the ticket was issued the RCMP was in the middle of multiple arrests of Hells Angels and their associates in Halifax and New Brunswick. Cops speculate that if Wortman was a confidential informant that his cover had been blown. It's standard practice to pass messages to informants or create cover for them through traffic stops.
