Clayton Eheler - busted again - update II

Clayton Archie Eheler was arrested on multiple charges March 22 in Langley. This time around it's committing an offence for a criminal organization, and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and trafficking.
Co-accused are Blaire Smith and Tyler Van Basten. Van Basten is Eheler’s cousin. The trio also face charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. Eheler wasn't granted bail and was cooling his heels in the big house. Dude has been sprung again with an encylopedia of conditions. Eheler is not allowed to be within 100 metres of the U.S. border, nor is he to be within 2km of any airport.

Clayton Archie Eheler puts the 'R' into recidivist. In 2019 cops seized $2m worth of drugs, including nearly 15 kg of fentanyl pills and powder, eight guns and more than $200k in cash.
Eheler and co-accused Mathew Jordan Thieessen were caught with cocaine in 2014. Both were found guilty of trafficking. Eheler, a former Bacon brothers associate, was sentenced to 8 years and a lifetime weapons prohibition. The case against the gangsters turned mainly on the admissibility of evidence from a search warrant executed in Chilliwack. The men were present in the apartment when cops busted down the door to search. Cops landed 8 kg of powder cocaine and 1 kg of crack along with weapons. Dates were set for the new trial. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for April 22 after which the trial will begin. Eheler, 38, is well known as a Wolf Pack gangster - a coalition made up of some Hells Angels, some Red Scorpions and some Independent Soldiers.
Eheler has a long criminal history, exceeding 45 convictions. Over the years Eheler repeatedly used a high profile defence lawyer to force delay after delay in the case. There were multiple defense voir dire hearings for alleged Charter breaches and a failed application for a mistrial. Then the pair gleefully argued their Charter rights were violated because the case took more than 30 months from arraignment to conviction.
