Conor D’Monte nailed in Puerto Rico - Update II

Canada has filed an extradition request and Conor D’Monte will eventually return to Canada to face justice. Conor D’Monte, 44, should be detained in Puerto Rico pending his extradition hearing on charges of murder and conspiracy, the U.S. government fairly claimed in court documents. D’Monte hit the daily double as both a “flight risk and a danger to the community.” When D’Monte was arrested in a suburb of San Juan on Feb. 25, he had a gun on him. D’Monte had lived in Puerto Rico for six years, posing as Johnny Williams. D’Monte had been a fugitive since January 2011.
The manhunt is over as UN gang boss Conor D’Monte has been arrested in Puerto Rico. D’Monte, 44, was picked up after a routine traffic stop on the outskirts of San Juan. He had a $100k reward posted on his head by CFSEU-BC in 2019.

D’Monte was charged with murder and conspiracy. He is accused of murdering Kevin LeClair in Langley in 2009.

In 2008 and 2009 B.C.'s lower mainland was in the midst of some of the worst gang violence in its history. The two main rivals, the Red Scorpions and United Nations, were at war and people were being killed. D’Monte took over leadership of the UN gang when founder Clay Roueche was jailed in 2008. D’Monte had a direct hand in planning and ordering murders of rival gangsters.
D’Monte is also charged with conspiracy to kill the Bacon brothers and others.
