Lon­don Hells An­gels mem­ber faces drug, weapons charges

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - LOCAL NEWS - DALE CAR­RUTHERS - The Lon­don Free Press

A Lon­don mem­ber of the Hells An­gels with a his­tory of vi­o­lence faces sev­eral charges fol­low­ing the first po­lice op­er­a­tion tar­get­ing local mem­bers of the out­law mo­tor­cy­cle gang in more than five years.

Po­lice searched two homes and a stor­age locker over the week­end, seiz­ing two stun guns, brass knuck­les, three Hells An­gels vests, $15,000 worth of co­caine, oxy­codone pills, weigh scales and cash, the OPP’s biker en­force­ment unit said Tues­day.

Sean Burger, 47, of Lon­don is charged with two counts of drug pos­ses­sion for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing, pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited de­vice and pos­ses­sion of a firearm con­trary to a pro­ba­tion or­der.

Burger, whom po­lice iden­ti­fied as a known mem­ber of the Hells An­gels, ap­peared in court on Mon­day and was re­leased from cus­tody. His case re­turns Feb. 2.

Jes­sica Bolschetschenko, 33, of Lon­don, is charged with drug pos­ses­sion and unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of a weapon. Her first court ap­pear­ance is Feb. 15.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are also look­ing for a 27-year-old Lon­don woman, whose iden­tify wasn’t re­leased. But court doc­u­ments ob­tained by Post­media News show there’s an ar­rest war­rant for Bre­anna Atkin­son, who is jointly charged with Burger with two counts of drug pos­ses­sion for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing.

The OPP, along with Lon­don po­lice and the RCMP, searched a home on Wharn­cliffe Road North, a home on Spring­meadow Road and a stor­age locker on Scan­lon Street on Satur­day, po­lice said.

Burger has a string of past con­vic­tions for as­saults, court records shows.

A 1997 as­sault con­vic­tion led to a fine. In 2009, Burger was sen­tenced to time served for ob­struct­ing a peace of­fi­cer. Burger was also fined for an as­sault con­vic­tion that same year. Most re­cently, he was sen­tenced to 90 days in jail and given pro­ba­tion for a 2010 as­sault con­vic­tion, ac­cord­ing to court records.
