Several police officers who conducted surveillance on Jarrod Bacon and Wayne Scott in the summer of 2009 testifieyet day at the trial of the two Abbotsford men, each charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine.

Most of the testimony was focused on one day in particular – Aug. 27, 2009 – in which surveillance was set up outside Scott’s home on Devon Crescent in Abbotsford, the former Bacon family home on Strathcona Court, and a warehouse on Maclure Road.

The officers with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit and the Integrated Gang Task Force testified in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver that Bacon appeared twice at the Scott residence that day.

The first time, he was dropped off by his parents, David and Susan Bacon, and David picked up Jarrod about 30 minutes later in a grey Acura. Scott then left in his own vehicle at about 7:10 p.m. and headed in the same direction.

At about 8 p.m., David and Jarrod returned to the Scott home in a black Ford 150 truck, followed shortly after by Scott.

After Scott and Jarrod had a conversation outside of the vehicles, both cars again departed in the same direction. Police ended their surveillance there at just after 8:30 p.m.

Another officer testified about surveillance that was conducted on the Scott home two weeks prior – on Aug. 13. On that day at about 5:20 p.m., a brief meeting took place in the carport among Jarrod, Scott and an agent hired by police to pose as a

drug supplier.

More testimony on the surveillance takes place Friday. The police agent is expected to take the stand starting Monday, with his testimony slated to take all week.

Jarrod and Scott  – alleged to be members of the Red Scorpions – were arrested

in Abbotsford in November 2009. Scott is the father of Jarrod’s girlfriend, with whom Jarrod has a young child.

Jarrod remains in prison, and Scott is out on bail.

Also arrested in Abbotsford were Daryl Johnson and Nicholas Wester – two alleged members of the UN Gang – while Doug Vanalstine, who police said headed

the organization at that time, was arrested in the Okanagan.

Their trial is scheduled to begin next June.
