The 43-year-old was arrested in downtown Montreal Thursday on a warrant issued by the Canada Border Services Agency. Police say they found $9,000 in cash, four cell phones and several pieces of counterfeit ID on Goodridge.
He was arrested for allegedly violating Article 37 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, which prohibits permanent residents from having any ties to organized crime.
On Monday, Goodridge appeared before the Canadian Immigration Commission, which has the power to deport him to his native Guyanna.
Police say he was a member of the Montreal North-based "67" gang. Goodridge and fellow 67 member Ducarmed Joseph repotedly had a falling out in 2004, which may have resulted in violence.
Joseph survived a gangland shooting in March 2010. That day two gunmen opened fire on Joseph in an Old Montreal clothing store, killing two of his associates.
