Police Keeping An Eye On Bacchus

The police continue to keep an eye on the Bacchus Motorcycle Gang. City Police Chief Bill Reid says they have been watching them, so it's no surprise there have been arrests made. He tells CHSJ News, make no mistake, they are a criminal organization.

 Back in August,The president of the group and six others were arrested following a six-month investigation by four local police agencies. 
"They will do things that will make you think they're just people that enjoy bikes," says Reid, "but at the end of the day the reason they're together is for criminal activity. We know that and we're well aware of it."

44-year-old Brian Schofield of Public Landing, president of the group, recently plead guilty in court to two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
