Project Sizzle netted kin of tyrant who terrified prostitutes, Jahmal “Bambino” Richardson, 31, of Oakville, and his half-brother Kyle Sparks MacKinnon, 25. Black Lives Matter
Alleged HOK gang leader Jahmal “Bambino” Richardson, 31, of Oakville, and his half-brother Kyle Sparks MacKinnon, 25, are facing first-degree murder charges in the shooting last Halloween of Charles Shillingford, 25.
Richardson was already in custody — after being charged last month with the murder — at the time of the raid. Police arrested 43 people, including 21 who were already in custody, in the sweep and charged them with numerous offences.
Glasgow, now 50, was sentenced to seven years in prison in 1993 in Toronto for orchestrating a prostitution network — known for its brutality — starting in his hometown of North Preston, outside of Halifax.
Glasgow, his uncle Conrad Glasgow, and three others formed a “family network” of North Preston pimps. Police allege they ran girls from Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Niagara Falls in the early 1990s.
Twenty women were abducted and moved from city to city. They were terrorized, zapped with stun guns, threatened with firearms, and whipped.
The victims worked for the Glasgows for years, earning up to $2,300 a night — yet walked away penniless.
Police alleged that the East Coast crime family members moved to Toronto and adopted a new gang name, “Heart of a King (HOK).”
The gang specializes in human trafficking, gun and drug trafficking, and credit card fraud, according to police.
Alleged human trafficking suspect Easton Leduc, 26, of Oakville — Morris Glasgow’s son, who’s nicknamed “Baby Glasgow” — was also caught in last week’s sweep.
