A man referred to by police as the president of the Bacchus motorcycle gang Halifax chapter has been charged after an arrest at the chapter Old Sambro Road headquarters last Thursday.
Halifax Regional Police emergency response team arrested Derreck Dean Huggan, 49, at 770 Old Sambro Rd. Thursday. Officers were called about an hour earlier to an assault in progress at a Bently Drive address, and their investigation took them to the Bacchus building.
Huggan was arrested without incident and police allegedly seized marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy from Huggan vehicle. A subsequent search at another property turned up some ammunition, police said.
He has been charged with assault, uttering threats, theft, possession of stolen property, drug possession and possession of ammunition contrary to a parole related prohibition order.
Huggan was arraigned on Friday and then released from custody.
He is due to return for election and plea on Feb. 3 and is under strict conditions until then. Huggan has been ordered to abstain from alcohol and drugs and must reside, except in approved cases, at a residence on Waterwheel Crescent in Lower Sackville.
Huggan can possess weapons and must keep the peace. He can have direct or indirect contact or communication with three individuals.
In an interview this May, RCMP Const. Cindy Cullen of the combined forces intelligence unit, said the force believed Huggan was president of the 12 member Bacchus chapter.
Huggan has been before the courts before.
In April 2000, Tantallon RCMP charged him in connection to the seizure of 3.5 kilograms of hashish, 659 grams of marijuana, a small amount of crack cocaine and a handgun.
