Man purse sinks enforcer Lawrence Cooney

Enforcer for the West End Gang Lawrence Cooney, 54, received a three-year sentence at the Montreal courthouse after he pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm and cocaine. Cops were informed he was acting as a bodyguard for top players and followed Cooney on three different dates during June and July 2022, proving it. “He was wearing a man purse while he was around people associated with organized crime. With that in mind the police obtained a search warrant for his Volkswagen Golf and also at his place. They found a loaded firearm. They also found seven grams of cocaine inside the car and $1,595 in cash in different areas.”

Defence lawyer Dominique Shoofey admitted “This is not Mr. Cooney’s first day in court,” Cooney has survived at least two attempted hits.
