The former Hells Angels stalwart was accused of entering the country with large amounts of undeclared cash

The former pillar of the Hells Angels, who was arrested during a spring 2001 operation, will again defend himself in court, this time for entering the country with large amounts of undeclared cash.

“He failed to declare to a customs officer the importation of cash of a value equal to or greater than the regulatory amount,” the indictment on Richard Myrand said.

Mayrand, 58, is a former member of the Hells Angels’ elite nomadic unit. He was so influential that he had already led the group in the absence of Maurice “Mother” Boucher since his death. “Dick” Mayrand was involved in a biker war that killed more than 150 people in Quebec in the six years to December 2000.

Arrested in 2001 during major raids against the criminal group, he was sentenced to 16 years in prison. He left the Hells Angels in 2009.

However, since its release in 2015, Mayrand has taken the lead Peaceful life, depending on what Newspaper.

However, last February, when he returned to the country, he allegedly filled in his travel declaration incorrectly. Under the Crimes (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act, anyone coming to Canada must report to authorities if they have more than $10,000 in cash.

Introduced in 2000, the Act aims to combat money laundering.

However, Mayrand allegedly passed through customs over $10,000 without declaring it, which he was charged with following checks by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

However, he was acquitted and it took almost six months to file a charge sheet.

Mayrand is scheduled to appear in court in September to announce whether or not he will plead guilty. He faces a fine or, at worst, a short jail term.
