B.C. government applies to seize cash from trainee of Hells Angels

January 25, 2013 - 3:36 PM

VANCOUVER - The B.C. government has $187,000 in cash that it says was found on a Hells Angels trainee and it's asking the court to allow it to keep the money.

In a B.C. Supreme Court civil claim, the Ministry of the Attorney General says Mounties seized $173,560 in Canadian funds and $14,000 in U.S. funds from Jonathan Bryce Jr. in Vancouver in March 2005.

The document says that Bryce was a so-called "hang around" for the East End Chapter of the Hells Angels.

Under federal law, the provincial government can apply to the courts to seize proceeds of unlawful activity.

Bryce was convicted of trafficking a scheduled substance and possession of property obtained by crime in April 2007.

The ministry alleges that all or a portion of the money was generated from the sale of illegal drugs.
