| Stephen Falls is among the few in the Hells Angels organization in Quebec with an anglophone family name. He joined the Rockers biker gang sometime in the early 1990s. Perhaps he was even among the group's founding members, when the club was formed on March 26, 1992.
Falls, fellow Rocker Paul "Fon Fon" Fontaine, and striker Sylvain Maheu were stopped by Surete du Quebec officers on May 24, 1995 as they drove along Highway 30, near Montée Sainte-Julie, on the south-shore of Montreal. The driver of the Ford Contour, Stephen Falls, was allegedly going 131 km/h.
Falls and Fontaine supposedly refused to exit the vehicle and locked
|their doors. Officers then broke a car window and proceeded to arrest the two Rockers. Fontaine had a loaded firearm stuffed into his belt and police found two other firearms in the automobile. All three men were placed under arrest.
Aimé Simard, a Hells Angels associate who turned government informant, claimed that Falls was involved in the brutal beating of 19 year old Sylvain Brazeau. Brazeau, a drug pusher with connections to the Rock Machine, was beaten with baseball bats on March 30, 1997. Also charged in the incident were Kenny Bédard, Daniel Saint-Pierre, Jean-Claude Saint-Pierre, Pierre Toupin, Jean-Pierre Dumont, and Sylvain Liboiron.
Simard also told police that Falls, Gregory Wooley, Pierre Provencher, Daniel Saint-Pierre, and Patrick Ménard Pascone conspired in the March 28, 1997 murder of Rock Machine associate Jean-Marc Caissy. Simard, who admitted to shooting Caissy five times in the face, claimed that the five helped plan the murder.
Falls and the others were charged with the crime. On the stand, Simard testified that Falls and Provencher gave him the order to murder Caissy. Falls allegedly also told the witness that their job was to murder Rock Machine members and associates, as well as to abduct rival drug dealers and torture them into giving up their drugs, cash, and guns.
The trial lasted four months. The jury, which consisted of seven men and five women, found Simard, the prosecution's main witness, to be unreliable and, after five days of deliberation, acquitted all five defendants.
Falls was among the over 100 Hells Angels members and associates charged in Opération: Printemps 2001 on March 28, 2001. But, unlike most of the others, Falls carefully avoided capture and went into hiding. He is still at large and is charged with eight murders and gangsterism.
