Douglas Brownell, Peter Manolakos, Sheldon O’Donnell, Leslie Podolski and Dale Sipes – all five members of a gang police named The Greeks – were found guilty in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver Sunday for their roles in killing three men in the North Okanagan in 2004 and 2005.

All were found guilty in connection with the deaths of David Marniuk, Ronald Thom andThomas Bryce.
