|Normand Robitaille’s ascension within the Hells Angels between 1994 and 2002 revealed he was a very active participant in the conflict that claimed more than 160 lives.|
Beginning in 1995, he went from being a member of the Rockers (an underling gang) to becoming a full-patch member of the elite nomads in 1998.
|He was arrested in 2001, along with most of the Nomads chapter and the Rockers, in a police crackdown. The investigation, dubbed Operation Springtime 2001, revealed the Nomads chapter generated $111 million in revenue from drug trafficking between March 30, 1999, to Dec. 19, 2000.|
Robitaille, now 47, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, drug trafficking and gangsterism and eventually received a 17 year term.

|He reached statutory release but was forced to return to prison in late February when corrections suspended release after "many irregularities" regarding his movements. The former high-ranking Hells Angels must allow authorities to keep track of his movements if he wants to remain free.|
In a decision issued in late April the National Parole board imposed this "special condition" with monitoring required "to protect society".
