Longueuil police kept a close eye on a barbecue on the South Shore last evening. It was organized by a motorcycle shop and was a welcome back party for a full-patch member of the Hells Angels who was released from jail a few days ago.
Michel "Guert" Guertin pleaded guilty last March to a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. Gangs including the Red Devils, Devils Ghosts and Death Messengers were represented.
Longueuil police have told the Journal de Montreal that they issued about a dozen tickets at the roadblocks but made no arrests.
The barbecue made the headlines earlier this week when a charity refused to accept the proceeds from it, saying it was leery of any link to biker gangs.
