Three men linked to a puppet club of the Kelowna Hells Angels are facing a number of drug charges after a lengthy investigation by B.C.’s anti-gang agency.
The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit announced Wednesday that Zale Coty and Jacob Cavanagh, both of Kamloops, and Shawn Carlisle, of Falkland, have been charged with a total of 13 counts, including conspiracy, possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, fentanyl and methamphetamine, and illicit cannabis sales.
“The investigation that began in 2017 resulted in the seizure of over four kilograms of drugs, a handgun, over $330,000 in cash, and arrests that helped prevent the expansion of an outlaw motorcycle support club for the Kelowna Chapter of the Hells Angels in the Kamloops area,” Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said.
Coty was a member of the Throttle Lockers support club when his Kamloops gardening business was one of three places raided by investigators in November 2019. He was a close friend of Chad Wilson, a member of the Hells Angels Hardside chapter, who was murdered in November 2018.
