    West Kelowna automotive shop with alleged underworld links stripped of licence

    WEST KELOWNA, B.C. - An automotive shop in West Kelowna, B.C., has been stripped of its business licence and must close its doors.

    Councillors in West Kelowna voted Tuesday night to revoke the business licence of Cycle Logic, nearly eight months after RCMP raided the operation.

    Police alleged it was a hub for various criminal organizations, including the Nanaimo and Calgary chapters of the Hells Angels, as well as the Throttle Lockers and Kingpin Crew from Kelowna.

    Police claim stolen vehicles, motorcycles and boats were found in the shop and at the owner's home and they believe Cycle Logic workers altered vehicle identification numbers to disguise the thefts.

    The allegations have not been proven in court.

    Owner John Newcome appears before a Kelowna judge in October, charged with 22 offences, including possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property. (CKFR)
