Four people are facing charges after a central Alberta investigation into a reported home invasion and kidnapping last month by a motorcycle gang police say is a support club for the Hells Angels.
On June 17, police said two adults were kidnapped from a location in Olds by three suspects. The suspects reportedly took used the victims’ vehicle to drive the two to the Syndicate Motorcycle Club Clubhouse in Red Deer where one was assaulted. The two were allowed to leave shortly after.
On June 29, police said three different suspects went to the home of one of the previous victims and stole her car.
An investigation was launched shortly after by Didsbury RCMP.
Four suspects were arrested without incident on July 10. Police also searched the motorcycle club’s clubhouse that day and said they seized evidence “for further examination.”
Another search warrant was executed the next day at a home in Red Deer where police said they seized cocaine, cash and further evidence.
Rachel Lynn Baskier, 22, Kevin Michael Fix, 35, Jessie Doreen Waugh, 32, and Joshua Bradley Noordhoff, 36, were all arrested and are facing a number of charges related to kidnapping, forcible confinement, assault and drug charges.
“Combatting outlaw motorcycle gang members and their related organized criminal activities remains a top national priority for the RCMP,” Staff Sgt. Chad Fournier said. “Outlaw motorcycle gangs represent a threat to the safety and wellbeing of Canadians.”
Didsbury RCMP were assisted by Olds and Red Deer RCMP, the forensic identification section, the RCMP interview assistance team, ALERT Red Deer and the K Division gang intelligence coordinator.
