Brian Oldham is behind bars.
Oldham, wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for drug charges in connection to Project E-Predicate, surrendered to the RCMP in Burnaby Tuesday.
He has been charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking a Controlled Substance.
Oldham is said to be the Sergaent-At-Arms of the Kelowna chapter of the Hells Angels.
Police raided the Kelowna clubhouse Saturday afternoon as part of a 20-month investigation that included several international agencies stretching as far away as Panama.
Seven other members of the Hells Angels in BC were arrested during the raids Saturday.
Kevin Van Kalkeren, David Giles, Michael Read and James Howard have been charged with Conspiracy to Import a Controlled Substance and Conspiracy to Traffic a Controlled Substance while Orhan Saydam, Murray Trekofski, and Shawn Womacks have been charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking a Controlled Substance.
The investigation focused on allegations that marijuana was being produced in the Southeast District and trafficked in BC and elsewhere to fund the importation of cocaine to Canada.
The raids also netted $4M in alleged drug money.
