Supreme Court on Friday of conspiracy to import 200 kilograms of cocaine after an undercover RCMP operation four years ago. Justice Carol Ross also found David Giles guilty of conspiracy to traffic half a tonne of cocaine, as well as possession for the purpose of trafficking, after he and an associate brokered a 2012 smuggling deal with police posing as South American drug lords. Ross said video and audio recordings made by the police during the investigation proved Giles and his associate Kevin Van Kalkeren agreed to pay the undercover cops millions for the cocaine. "I find that it is clear that what Mr. Van Kalkeren and Mr. Giles intended from March 2012 forward was to purchase cocaine from the (undercover officers) for resale," Ross said. "They believed that the drugs they were purchasing were not already in the country. It is clear that the plan was to sell the drugs in Canada." Van Kalkeren earlier pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import cocaine and was sentenced in May to 16 years in jail. Ross referred to comments Giles made to the purported drug lords prior to the delivery of 200 kilos of fake cocaine to a Burnaby warehouse on Aug. 25, 2012. "Giles expressed confidence in their ability to market the cocaine," Ross said. "The agreement was for 500 kilos. Mr. Giles' proposal to proceed with 200 first was made so that the proceeds of the sale of the 200 could be applied to the purchase price for the 300." Giles, vice president of the Kelowna HA chapter, told one of the officers "that he expected to be able to get rid of the 500 kilos in a couple of weeks," Ross said. Ross also convicted Kelowna Hells Angel Bryan Oldham of possession for the purpose of trafficking after he met with undercover police on Aug. 24, 2012 and said he would step in if anything happened to Giles. "Mr. Oldham confirmed that he understood why he was there, that he would take over if Mr. Giles became ill, that he knew they were talking about 500 and that it was not candy, that he would go to Mr. Van Kalkeren if anything happened with Mr. Giles," Ross said. But Ross acquitted Oldham of the more serious charge of conspiracy to traffic cocaine, saying there was no evidence that the long time biker was part of the bigger plot to sell the coke despite the single meeting he attended. "I have concluded that the evidence supports a reasonable inference that he did not, in fact, intend to join the conspiracy, and did not do so," Ross said. Hells Angels associate James Howard was convicted of both conspiracy to traffic and possession for the purpose of trafficking. But he was acquitted of conspiracy to import the cocaine. Associate Shawn Womacks, who was arrested at the warehouse where the fake cocaine was delivered, was found guilty of a single count of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Michael pandora jewels Read, who the Crown inexpensive pandora charms had alleged was part of the conspiracy throughout the undercover investigation and who delivered a suitcase containing $2 million to police, was acquitted of all charges. "I am not satisfied that the only reasonable inference is that Mr. Read knew that he was delivering the downpayment of the cocaine purchase, or that he must have been informed of the essential elements of the agreement in advance of these events and agreed to participate," Ross said. The elaborate reverse sting involved undercover officers meeting with Giles and Van Kalkeren over several months in late 2011 and 2012 in Vancouver, Mexico City, Panama City, and Montreal. "In the course of these meetings, the Crown alleges that an agreement was reached for the purchase of cocaine from the undercover officers," Ross noted. "The first agreement was for the purchase of 200 kilos of cocaine to be delivered in Los Angeles. The terms were later modified to provide for delivery of 500 kilos of cocaine in Vancouver." Almost $4 million was delivered by Van Kalkeren and Giles as a downpayment for the cocaine. Giles, now 66 and in ill health, has been in custody since his arrest on Aug. 25, 2012. All the others in the case have been out on bail.
The case has been adjourned until Oct. 11, to fix a date for a sentencing and for the defence to make an application to throw out the charges because of trial delays. Two others, Murray Elmer Trekofski and Orhan Saydam, earlier pleaded guilty to lesser roles in the cocaine scheme.
