Posse pursued
Second major bust of gang sees 12 charged, drugs and cash seized

Less than a year after police announced they had crippled the White Boy Posse - a Hells Angels affiliate gang - cops have charged a dozen Posse members with nearly 100 crimes.

Yesterday, police announced not only the arrest of 12 Posse members "near the top," according to EPS Insp. Kevin Galvin, but also the seizure of 28 firearms, about $500,000 in cocaine, more than $300,000 in cash, 3,000 ecstasy pills and a variety of stolen goods.

SEIZED

The items were seized from residences in St. Albert, and on Hooke Road, Caldwell Way and South Terwillegar Drive, as well as a business in the area of 127 Avenue and 127 Street.

Some of the weapons, police say, were recovered less than 24 hours after they were stolen in a break-and-enter.

"We are going to continue the pressure that they see here today," Alberta Solicitor General and Minister of Public Security Fred Lindsay said confidently to a crowd of reporters yesterday. "This is only a portion of it, it's a disruption, in fact."

He added that there are about a dozen crime gangs and up to 40 affiliate groups operating in Edmonton.

"They may even see this, to some extent, as the cost of doing business. But, the more busts that we have, we're going to take their profit margins away and we are going to get these guys the heck out of our province."

Lindsay also called for tougher legislation to keep offenders off the streets.

Behind him, several tables were filled with a variety of items seized from the arrested dozen, including firearms of all sorts, a crossbow, a Nazi flag and shirts bearing WBP logos.

Cops say the year-long multi-agency project - known as Integrated Response to Organized Crime - that spanned much of Alberta and some of B.C., was triggered by a shooting in June 2008 in downtown Edmonton.

Cops from EPS and RCMP ranks agreed that the bust would hit the organization - with an estimated 50 core members - where it hurt.

"The group of individuals that we have arrested and charged, to this point in time, are pretty significant players in the organized crime gang community in Edmonton," said RCMP Insp. Bob Simmonds, the officer in charge of IROC.

ECHOED

The comment echoed Insp. Galvin's comments in late March, 2008, when he announced that the arrest of 17 Posse members "completely handicapped" the organization, and that the Posse was "not functioning."

The early-morning shooting at the All-Happy Family Restaurant that set IROC into motion took place about 10 weeks later.

The 12 people arrested are between 16 and 49 years old and are facing mostly firearms, drug trafficking and stolen property-related charges.

Gang bust nets guns, drugs, cash

12 charged in provincewide crackdown

By Ryan Cormier, The Edmonton Journal January 30, 2009

Edmonton police and the RCMP showed off the rewards Thursday of a one-year, provincewide investigation -- tables rife with guns, ammunition and drugs.

A dozen people have been charged in connection with what police says was a criminal network that operated in Edmonton, Vancouver, Grande Prairie and Red Deer.

The 86 charges range from trafficking drugs to uttering death threats.

Police seized 28 guns, a crossbow, a machete, stolen vehicles, $310,000 in cash and 3,000 ecstasy tablets. More than seven kilograms of cocaine was also seized with an estimated value of more than $500,000.

A Nazi flag was also among the seized items.

Officers also displayed clothing with W.B.P. printed on them -- a blatant advertisement for the White Boy Posse gang.

Staff Sgt. Kevin Galvin said the dozen arrested had connections to the gang and were "near the top" of that organization's drug trade.

"Organized crime is the second-oldest profession in the world," Galvin said. "All we can do is continue to respond, repress and disrupt. It's a business process that will always be in place and these people were quite high in it."

A year ago, a series of violent clashes led Edmonton police and RCMP to target the group. Once they realized the organization operated throughout Alberta and into B.C., the provincially funded Integrated Response to Organized Crime unit was called in to a.ssist.

RCMP Insp. Bob Simmonds said the IROC unit made it possible for such large investigations across different jurisdictions. "To date, we have had some significant success in disrupting and dismantling a criminal organization operating in Edmonton and northern Alberta."

There are about 50 self-identified members of the White Boy Posse, Galvin said. There are roughly a dozen organized crime groups in Edmonton, but nearly 40 if various sub-groups are included.

The arrests also brought tough talk from Solicitor General Fred Lindsay and promises of more arrests.

"There's a lot more stuff like this going on, and we're going to keep hammering these guys until they get the message and get the heck out of Alberta."

Bad economic times might mean more competition among the drug trade, Lindsay added.

"There's the possibility of more violence than we've seen in the past."

In March 2008, police targeted the White Boy Posse in a large investigation called Project Goliath. That resulted in 17 arrests over a series of five raids. Warrants were issued for another five people.

"We created a vacuum with that, the White Boy Posse was dismantled for a period," Galvin said. "They responded and improved, and now we've brought them back down again."
