Robert J. Shannon,allegedly oversaw the smuggling and distribution of narcotics for the Hell’s Angels

00:31 |

Federal prosecutors have charged two Canadian men who allegedly ran a drug smuggling ring for the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club that involved stuffing hollowed out logs, cargo containers and propane tankers with cocaine and marijuana.
Robert J. Shannon, 38, of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, and Devron D. Quast, 38, of Abbotsford, British Columbia, were arrested in early June after meeting with an undercover federal agent. The pair traveled to the U.S. to discuss a deal with the agent, who posed as a drug trafficker.Law enforcement agents spent three years investigating the operation and have seized more than 1,300 pounds of cocaine, 7,000 pounds of “B.C. Bud” marijuana, and $3.5 million in cash. Thirty-eight people have been charged with drug trafficking and related offenses in the case.
According to court documents, Shannon allegedly oversaw the smuggling and distribution of narcotics for the Hell’s Angels, including transporting drugs inside false walls of cargo containers, in loads of commercial lumber, and in large PVC pipes hidden inside a propane tanker.
Quast was allegedly responsible for the transportation of the drugs, even guaranteeing to Canadian marijuana suppliers that drugs would be smuggled successfully into the U.S. He agreed to pay the suppliers $425 per pound of marijuana if any load was seized by law enforcement or lost, according to court documents.If convicted, Shannon and Quast face up to life in prison, based on the amount of illegal drugs involved in the case.
In addition, federal agents arrested Richard Jansen of Chilliwack, British Columbia, for his alleged role in transporting the drugs. Jansen is the owner of Scorpion Transport Services.
