Criminal proceedings have been stayed against a Red Deer man alleged by police to be part of the Hells Angels motorcycle organization.

Criminal proceedings have been stayed against a Red Deer man alleged by police to be part of the Hells Angels motorcycle organization.

Charges were laid against Leonard John Desjarlais, 37 in early December of 2009 after Red Deer City RCMP found cash stashed in the furnace and a number of other items in a vacant house on Michener Hill.

Mounties alleged that the money was connected to the drug trade and that illegal weapons were among the items located in the house.

Desjarlais was charged with possession of the proceeds of crime, uttering forged documents and unauthorized possession of prohibited weapons.

He pleaded not guilty and the matter was set for trial on Feb. 9, 2010. The case was adjourned when new information was discovered which would have affected the outcome of a trial.

Proceedings were stayed in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday.
