Two people charged in an alleged biker gang-related home invasion and kidnapping incident in central Alberta two years ago will go to trial later this year.
Kevin Michael Fix, 37, of Red Deer, and Joshua Bradley Noordhoff, 38, of Red Deer, are scheduled to have a Court of Queen’s Bench trial in Calgary Dec. 7-11.
The pair were among four people charged initially after Didsbury RCMP responded to an incident in Olds on June 17, 2018.
It was then when Mounties allege a kidnapping and assault occurred where three suspects were accused of abducting two adult victims from the location and driven in their own vehicles to the Syndicate Motorcycle Club Clubhouse in Red Deer where one of them was assaulted.
Police say the victims were then released and left the clubhouse.
On June 29, 2018, RCMP say three different suspects came to the same victim’s residence in Didsbury and broke into the house before stealing the female victim’s car and fleeing.
An in-depth investigation was launched by Didsbury RCMP, utilizing assistance from Olds and Red Deer RCMP detachments, Red Deer and Calgary General Investigation sections, the Forensic Identification Section, the RCMP Interview Assistance Team and ALERT in Red Deer, as well as the K Division Gang Intelligence Coordinator.
Information gathered by the RCMP reveals that the Syndicate Motorcycle Club in Red Deer is a support club for the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club – Nomads Chapter.
On July 10, 2018, four suspects were arrested without incident in Red Deer. Following their arrest, a search warrant was executed at the Syndicate Motorcycle Club Red Deer Clubhouse, where evidence was seized for further examination.
On July 11, 2018, a second search warrant was executed at a residence in Red Deer where cocaine, cash, and further evidence was seized.
Four adults associated to the Syndicate Motorcycle Club, all of Red Deer, were charged as a result of these incidents. Charges against two, however, have since been withdrawn.
Kevin Michael Fix faces 11 charges, including three counts of kidnapping without a firearm, two counts of uttering threats, two counts of assault, two counts of break and enter and commit the offence of forcible confinement, break and enter and commit the offence of extortion, and criminal harassment.
Joshua Bradley Noordhoff faces nine charges, including two counts of uttering threats, two counts of failure to comply with a condition of a recognizance, two counts of break and enter and commit the offence of forcible confinement, break and enter and commit the offence of extortion, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
