Boy, you know you're in trouble when even Mexico won't let you cross the Border. The United Nations gang, a British Columbia based Gang was busted by RCMP in BC, while it's head honcho after being refused entry into Mexico and upon his return and still in the United States airspace was furiously trying to erase all his personal data including Bank account info from his Blackberry, before US authourities seized it.
Yep technology, can't live without it, and with computer capture technology today, the US law enforcement may find more than enough Blackberry info to make Clayton a US guest for life. Priceless!!
U.S. court reveals B.C. gang details'Murder kit' seized from gang leader's Metro Vancouver apartmentKim Bolan, Vancouver SunPublished: Tuesday, June 10, 2008
METRO VANCOUVER - The Metro Vancouver leader of the notorious United Nations gang appeared to be plotting the murder of a rival when he was arrested by U.S. authorities last month, according to court documents filed Tuesday in a Seattle court.
The stunning nine-page submission to support the detention of Clayton Roueche says that when Canadian police searched his Coquitlam apartment last month, they found what "constitutes a kit for kidnapping or murder."
"Agents found an illegally owned and stored Glock, extended magazines for the Glock, night-vision goggles, balaclava, handcuffs, pepper spray along with pictures of a rival gang leader," the court documents say. "Other UN gang paraphernalia was found which reflects the violent nature of the group."
Roueche was en route to Mexico May 17 for the Cancun wedding of another UN gang leader when he was turned away by Mexican police, who had been told by U.S. and Canadian authorities about his gang connections.
Over his objections, Roueche was put on a return flight that landed in Fort Worth, Tex., where he was arrested by Americans on charges of conspiracy to import and export cocaine and marijuana.
Roueche was so panicked about landing in the U.S. that he began sending BlackBerry messages to friends before the flight touched down in Texas indicating he was worried and providing bank account information and access codes.
