A 29-year-old Regina man who faces charges over a July 2016 tattoo shop arson had previously been arrested in Ontario during a police investigation into the Outlaw Motorcycle Club.

On Jan. 12, Kelly Ryan Powell was charged with arson causing damage to property, and with uttering threats, in relation to the July 4 overnight blaze at the Gaslight Tattoo Parlour on the 1300 block of Saskatchewan Drive. After police and fire units responded to the scene, the fire was determined to have been started deliberately.

Powell made his first appearance on the matter at Regina Provincial Court on Jan. 13, and has been remanded in custody.

He also faces mischief, theft and possession of weapons charges in a Barrie, Ont. court on Thursday in relation to a July 29, 2016 incident in which a gas station ATM was broken into in broad daylight near Parry Sound, Ontario.

After a large sum of money was taken from the breached ATM, a total of nine people — seven Reginans — were arrested, with Ontario Provincial Police saying the perpetrators were members of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club who were headed to a national gathering in Alliston, Ont.

When a warrant was executed, police found a loaded firearm, switchblades and retractable, police-style batons, and subsequently charged the eight men and one woman with a range of offences.
