Jail for Syndicate MC traffickers

The Syndicate is a puppet club under the Alberta nomads. They are tasked with trafficking in Red Deer and Fort McMurray. In 2019, weapons, 350k in drugs and $78k cash were seized. It was found cocaine was being cut to less than 30% purity. Casey Chapin and Joel Befus, both full-patch Syndicate MC, were charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine, along with other offences. Bailey Chapin was also charged.
Casey Donald Chapin, 35, was sentenced last week to 42 months after being convicted on possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm. Joel Befus, 34, was sentenced in January to 52 months in jail. The men were arrested on April 30, 2019, following a two-year investigation called Project Rocker.
