$2.9 Million Reasons to Snitch on the Hells Angels
If you don't have anything nice to say...
It takes something very special to infiltrate a group like the Hells Angels. The police can’t do it because during the investigation an informant might be expected to commit certain crimes. We can’t place our own people in a gang like that. Unidentified police source.
Allegedly, Boulanger gave investigators details from meetings that were held in July 1994 when members of the Hells Angels voted in favor of a gang war against the Alliance for control over drug turf in Montreal and Quebec City, it lasted for about eight years.
The previous believed record for buying information was $1.75 million CAD that was signed back in March 2000 but the informant, Dany Kane, took his own life just months after agreeing to the deal. Kane, was a member of the Rockers, a defunct Hells Angels affiliate gang.
Boulanger, became a full-patch member in 1993 and was sergeant-at-arms for the Sherbrooke chapter, he reportedly retired from the gang in 2001 (can you even do that?), good luck Sylvain!
