London Hells Angels member faces drug, weapons charges
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.
Weapons, cocaine and three Hells Angels vests were seized by police during searches Saturday of two homes and a storage locker in London. A man who is a member of the Hells Angels was arrested along with a woman, and police are searching for a second woman.
