Sudbury police charge former CRA worker who they say was also outlaw biker

Sixteen-month investigation leads to charges for Sudbury man, 45, who police allege was member of Bacchus Motorcycle Club
Greater Sudbury Police have charged a former employee of the Canada Revenue Agency — who was also a member of the Bacchus Motorcycle Club — with numerous offences related to the accessing of confidential records.

GREATER SUDBURY — A Greater Sudbury man faces seven charges — including breach of trust and weapons offences — after a “complex” 16-month investigation, Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS) announced today.

GSPS said the lengthy criminal investigation led them to charge a former employee of the Canada Revenue Agency with counts that include breach of trust, unauthorized use of a computer, committing a criminal offence to benefit or in association with a criminal organization (two counts), unauthorized possession of a firearm, careless storage of a firearm and possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition.

Police have not released the name of the 45-year-old man.

The Criminal Investigations Division of the GSPS conducted the investigation into the man’s activities. They allege the unnamed man is a member of the Bacchus Motorcycle Club, an organization that represents itself on its website as a so-called “1%” club, something police allege indicates it is an outlaw, or criminal organization.

GSPS allege the man unlawfully accessed confidential records of Greater Sudbury residents between November and December of 2014. Those whose records were accessed are being notified.

Police have not said why the man was accessing the records, nor what connection that access had to the motorcycle club.
