Clayton Eheler - busted again - update IV

"Christmas is all about giving," said Alexandria Di Battista, 'owner' of Smoking Deals Auto in Chilliwack.
Its Dec 16, 2013 and "The folks at Smoking Deals Auto, Alexandria Di Battista, Clayton Eheler, and Tyler McInnes, hosted a Christmas dinner for the hungry on Dec. 19, 2013 at Evergreen Hall." “We did pretty good this past year, and we want to give back to the community,” she said. “Feeding people is filling a basic need.” So is getting high and cocaine kingpin Clayton Eheler was busted months later.
Clayton Archie Eheler, 40, was arrested on multiple charges March 22, 2022 in Langley. This time around it's committing an offence for a criminal organization, and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and trafficking.
Eight years, four months, and 15 days after Clayton Eheler was caught with Matthew Thiessen processing a mountain of cocaine, the well-known gangster finally pleaded guilty. Co-accused Thiessen pleaded guilty and will be sentenced Sept. 6. Eheler remains out on bail pending his next court appearance.

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. The men were present in the apartment when cops busted down the door. Cops landed 8kg of powder cocaine and 1kg of crack along with weapons.

Eheler 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.
