Alleged Abbotsford gangster Chad Weber charged again
Alleged Abbotsford gangster Chad Weber is in trouble with the law once again.
Weber, 36, who has faced numerous previous charges in the city, was arrested last month and charged with assault and theft of under $5,000.
Co-accused Kyanne Alyssia Novack, 27, also faces an assault charge.
Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said police were called on Sept. 21 to a gas station in the 1900 block of McCallum Road for reports of a disturbance just before midnight.
Weber and Novack had allegedly been in an argument with a 46-year-old woman over a supposed debt.
Weber is accused of grabbing the woman by the neck. Novack is accused of throwing a pizza box at her and hitting her.
MacDonald said the pair also allegedly took cash from the woman, as well as her car keys.
Weber remains in custody, but Novack was released.
Police in 2011 indicated that Weber was connected to the UN Gang, after he was arrested following a bust that turned up drugs, cash and two bulletproof vests. He was sentenced to 60 days in prison after pleading guilty to possession for the purpose of trafficking.
His current gang affiliation, if any, is not clear.
In April 2012, police warned the public that Weber's life was in danger and that anyone associating with him was at risk.
In July of that year, a 28-year-old man was robbed of cash, electronics and jewelry by a group of men on Catalina Crescent in Abbotsford.
Weber was later charged in connection to that incident and was sentenced in January 2013 to one day in prison.
The following month, he was arrested and charged again – this time for robbery, extortion and uttering threats.
Those charges were stayed in August.
