Three Guilty Pleas in CFSEU-BC’s Investigation into Brothers Keepers Gang
Brothers Keeper’s gang member, Amandeep Singh Kang has entered a guilty plea from a 2019 CFSEU-BC investigation along with two (2) other individuals that were charged with over twenty-five (25) criminal offences combined.
In 2019, CFSEU-BC led the creation of a task force that aimed in targeting the emerging gang known as, the “Brothers Keepers.” CFSEU-BC’s goal was to disrupt and suppress the violent gang activity led by this specific criminal organization by collaborating with our policing partners in sharing intelligence and investigative avenues. Through these efforts, CFSEU-BC determined that the Brothers Keepers had spread across British Columbia and expanded their criminal networks through Alberta and Ontario.
