Red Scorpion leader faces new charges

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

As the trial involving two men accused of carrying out the Surrey Six massacre winds down, fresh charges have been laid against Red Scorpion gang leader Jamie Bacon.

The man accused of ordering the execution of rival drug dealer Corey Lal at a Surrey penthouse in 2007 has yet to stand trial, but he’s now facing more charges of plotting to kill a former associate, who can only be identified as Person X.

Prosecutors say Bacon arranged to kill that man between the fall of 2008 and winter of 2009.

Three charges were laid by direct indictment July third and Bacon is slated to appear again August 22nd.

The alleged victim is in prison after confessing he was one of the Surrey Six shooters.

The men on trial now, Cody Haevischer and Matthew Johnston, are expected to learn their fates later this year.
