Jackie Tran was back behind bars yesterday after cops found he was not living with his mom as he was supposed to. Nghia Trong Nguyen-Tran, aka Jackie Tran, was picked up yesterday afternoon at a McKenzie Towne condo by police, along with Canada Border Services Agency officials, for allegedly breaching a condition imposed by immigration officials, said Staff Sgt. Gord Renke. The 26-year-old is now in the custody of immigration officials pending a detention review hearing which must be held within 48 hours. "He is supposed to be living with his mom," said Renke, with the organized crime section's targeted enforcement unit. "He was not living with his mom ... (who) has since moved to another residence. "He was bound (by conditions) to move with her -- they have to live together." Tran's mom recently moved to subsidized housing in a bid to be with her younger daughter who was seized by officials fearing for the girl's safety, said sources. The move, however, left her torn between her two children when housing officials did not want her son living there, the sources said. Renke said police learned about the potential breach about a week ago and they are happy he is in custody. "He is a high-profile gang member," he said, adding police intend to oppose his release. "We are quite pleased with his arrest. "He would have been extremely aware of what he should and shouldn't be doing." Tran's fate in Canada, however, is still uncertain pending the outcome of two recent immigration hearings in which federal officials along with police pushed for his deportation -- one on the grounds of his criminal background and one surrounding the claims he is a gang member. The rulings are expected in April or May. During the hearings, officials painted a picture of Tran's involvement in organized crime and association with players in a longstanding and deadly feud between Fresh off the Boat (FOB) and Fresh off the Boat Killers (FK). Tran, who has a conviction for trafficking cocaine and assault with a weapon, said he is not a gang member and wants to avoid deportation to Vietnam so he can stay here to support his mother and young sister. He was first ordered deported in 2004, but the process has been slowed by various appeals.
