Hells Angel member Jason Cyrus Arkinstall was arrested with Lawrence Edward Dwyer near Creston, B.C., by Royal Mounted Canadian Police and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and drug smuggling.
In 2013 Arkinstall was charged in Spain with fellow Hells Angel member Chad Wilson for smuggling half a ton of cocaine into the country. They were convicted and returned to Canada. Wilson was shot to death in 2018.
Arkinstall has been arrested but released due to mistreatment by law enforcement in a ruling by a Canadian judge. He was also involved in a multi-yearlong court battle over heavy electricity usage that law enforcement suspected was part of an illegal marijuana grow operation.
