Head of B.C.-based crime syndicate gunned down in Mexico

04:40 |

The head of a notorious organized crime syndicate based in B.C. was gunned down in a Mexico coffee shop Friday, police said. Thomas Gibsy, 50, who police allege built and controlled an international criminal empire with links to the Hells Angels, was shot in the head as he walked into a coffee shop in Nuevo Vallarta around 10 p.m. Friday “This individual was highly ranked and probably thought he was at such a high level he was immune from both police prosecution and gang violence and clearly, today that’s not the case,” RCMP Chief Supt. Dan Malo, head of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, said Saturday. Earlier this year, police said Gibsy was the target in a motorhome explosion near Whistler earlier this year. “He’s linked to that investigation,” Malo said. Gibsy was well-known in the criminal underworld, Malo said. “For police officers and police agencies in British Columbia, Thomas Gibsy is a high-ranking organized crime target that operates in British Columbia, throughout Canada and internationally,” Malo said. “He is the head of his own criminal organization and over the years has had associations with just about every organized crime group operating in British Columbia. “We’ve had intelligence he’s been involved in several different commodities, drugs obviously being one that drives profits of many of these groups, and he was no different.” Mexican media reported that Gibsy was living in Nuevo Vallarta at the time and was shot twice in the head by two men as he ordered a drink at a Starbucks. One suspect had repportedly been taken into custody nearby. Malo said police in Canada had not been notified of an arrest. “He was not simply just a tourist and we want to get the message to the public, this was not a random individual, this was someone who, every waking minute of the day was involved in organized crime,” he said.
