Alleged Red Scorpion pleads guilty to two charges
An alleged Red Scorpions gang member arrested after a bust at his Aldergrove residence in November 2009 has pleaded guilty to two offences, while all charges have been stayed against his girlfriend.
Jason William Brown, 36, pleaded guilty Wednesday in New Westminster Supreme Court to possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition. Both offences are linked to Brown's activities in Abbotsford.
Another trafficking charge and a weapons charge were stayed, as was a charge of possession of property obtained by crime.
Brown's girlfriend, Terra Lynn George, 25, had been charged with four of the same five offences.
The couple's rented home in the 26900 block of 26A Avenue was the subject of a raid by Abbotsford Police, Langley RCMP, the Integrated Gang Task Force and the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team on Nov. 12, 2009.
The two were not home at the time, but police seized two kilograms of cocaine, one kilogram of meth, a 9-mm handgun, a loaded magazine, two bulletproof vests, Red Scorpions clothing, and about $12,000 cash.
Brown and George were arrested several days later.
Brown's sentencing date has yet to be set.
He was also among 18 members of the Hells Angels or associates who were arrested in 2005 in Vancouver and Kelowna. The two-year investigation was dubbed Project E-Pandora.
That project led to Brown being charged with two counts of conspiracy to produce/traffic meth and two counts of commission of an offence in association with a criminal organization.
