Police claimed Bacon was one of the leading members of the Red Scorpions, a street gang with an infamous reputation in British Columbia.

Kash Heed, a member of the B.C. legislature and a former West Vancouver police chief, said the Red Scorpions were originally part of another gang called the United Nations.

“They, like other gangs, are involved in drug activity, drug importation, drug trafficking, throughout British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada,” Heed told CTV’s Canada AM during a telephone interview from Vancouver on Tuesday morning.
