|Two men affiliated with the Edmonton chapter of the Hells Angels had five years tacked onto their prison sentences for conspiring to traffic cocaine and benefiting a criminal organization. Alberta’s Court of Appeal increased John Reginald Alcantara and Alan Peter Knapczyk’s prison sentences to 15 years from 10 years for acting as enforcers for a large Fort McMurray cocaine trafficking operation. |
In September 2012, both were sentenced to a decade in prison. At the time, Knapczyk was a Hells Angels member and Alcantara was a prospect.
Jeffrey Mark Caines was given a 14-year sentence after pleading guilty to being head of a massive drug trafficking operation in Fort McMurray
|The case stretches back to 2005, when Knapczyk and Alcantara agreed to provide protection for a Fort McMurray cocaine trafficker in exchange for $20,000 a week. Trafficker Jeffrey Mark Cains called in Knapczyk and Alcantara to intimidate the competition and ensure no one stole drugs from his network of distributors in 2005 and 2006.|
