An alleged member of an outlaw motorcycle club is among two people facing gun charges after cops seized two firearms during a raid in Toronto.

Ontario Provincial Police say members of the OPP-led Biker Enforcement Unit (BEU) arrested a 49-year-old man – a suspected One Order MC member – and a women, 46, when they executed a search warrant with support from Toronto Police Emergency Task Force officers on June 21.

“The investigative team seized ammunition and two firearms, One Order MC vests and two cellphones as a result of the search warrant,” the OPP said Wednesday.

Patrick Callaghan and Lisa Snelgrove, both of Etobicoke, were arrested.

The pair were charged with a combined 30 offences that include two counts each of unauthorized possession of a firearm, knowledge of unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a loaded prohibited/restricted firearm, careless storage of a firearm, careless storage of ammunition, and contravention of firearms storage regulations, as well as one count of possession of a firearm obtained by crime.

Both have since been released from custody.

Callaghan is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on Aug. 6 and Snelgrove’s court appearance is Aug. 16.

“While the majority of motorcycle enthusiasts are law-abiding, OMGs (outlaw motorcycle gangs) are criminal organizations whose activities cause harm and victimization in communities across Ontario,” the OPP said. “OMGs have been known to participate in illegal, profit-driven activities such as fraud, drug trafficking, extortion, intimidation, and murder.”

One Order MC reportedly has chapters in Toronto, London and Halifax. The 1%er club has also been in Windsor since at least early 2023 and members have reportedly been spotted associating with the Hells Angels, a motorcycle club that is designated as an organized crime group in Canada.

A least two other suspected members of One Order MC have faced gun charges since last summer.

Kevin Bingham, 50, was charged by cops in Windsor after he was allegedly caught in a vehicle with illicit drugs and a loaded Smith & Wesson revolver on June 27, 2023.

Windsor police executed search warrants the next day at three residences and one business, allegedly seizing an assortment of crystal meth, fentanyl and cocaine.

Two other men were also arrested. The outcome of those 2023 charges is unknown.

At the time, Bingham was under three separate court orders – dating back to 2008 – banning him from possessing firearms. And police have previously described him as having ties to The Gatorz, a street gang that was once based in Toronto’s west end.

The OPP said at the time that officers seized a prohibited shotgun, non-restricted rifle, two imitation handguns, components to make seven restricted handguns, a vest containing ballistic panels, two cellphones and four One Order Motorcycle Club vests, including one with ballistic panels.

Sherwin Anthony “AJ” Jhingoree, 39, of Brampton, was charged with firearm-related offences and three counts of breaching of a release order.

The outcome of those charges is unknown.
