A person who died Wednesday after his neighbour discovered him mendacity within the driveway of his residence in St-Hyacinthe was a convicted drug vendor who had ties to the Hells Angels.

The Sûreté du Québec is investigating the murder. A spokesperson for the provincial police on Thursday confirmed the sufferer was Jimmy Pelletier, a 40-year-old resident of St-Hyacinthe.

Pelletier was discovered mendacity exterior his residence on Rouleau St. shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday. He was taken to a hospital, the place he was declared lifeless a short time later.

The murder sufferer had a prison document that included a case in 2010 whereby he pleaded responsible to eight counts of drug trafficking. He was sentenced to a 34-month jail time period.

The next 12 months, the Régie des alcools, des programs et des jeux launched a call regarding the liquor allow held by a bar in St-Hyacinthe. The choice made reference to studies from cops who noticed two full-patch members of the Hells Angels contained in the bar on March 15, 2009. The police alleged medication have been being bought out of the bar. Pelletier was known as a identified drug trafficker within the determination. The police reported that he seemed to be with the 2 Hells Angels on the day the bikers confirmed up. The police informed the provincial liquor board they believed the Hells Angels have been there to “let or not it’s identified it was their territory.”

Nobody has been arrested in reference to Pelletier’s dying.
