Police seek son of former Hells Angels kingpin after he leaves prison early

A search is under way for the son of former Hells Angels kingpin Maurice (Mom) Boucher after he left a Montreal prison prematurely.

Francis Boucher was serving a 117-day sentence for having uttered death threats against police officers – a sentence due to be completed at the end of May.

Boucher, 39, walked out of Bordeaux Prison Monday at about 11 a.m.

Quebec Public Security Minister Lise Theriault called the incident “inexcusable” and said everything was being done to “find this individual as quickly as possible.”

Officials, however, appear to differ on just how Boucher left the prison.


Marc Lyrette, the deputy director of the correctional system in Montreal, said Boucher was released due to “what appears to be an administrative error.”

But Louise Quintin, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Safety, said Boucher used a “trick” to leave the prison and this was “not an administrative error,” but did not elaborate further.

On Monday evening, Theriault requested an administrative investigation to determine just how Boucher left the facility.

Boucher, a former member of the Rockers, a Hells affiliate, was previously sentenced to 10 years for gangsterism, conspiracy to commit murder and drug-trafficking.

He is described as about five-foot-nine inches tall and 165 pounds, with green eyes and salt and pepper hair.
