Red Scorpion Jonathan Bacon delivered 114 sticks of stolen dynamite, a grenade, seven handguns, two shotguns, a rifle and an Uzi submachinegun

Gangster Jonathan Bacon delivered 114 sticks of stolen dynamite, a grenade, seven handguns, two shotguns, a rifle and an Uzi submachinegun to police as part of a plea bargain for an associate, according to court documents obtained by The Vancouver Sun.
The eldest of the trio of brothers linked to the Red Scorpion gang, Bacon brought the arsenal to Abbotsford Det. Lyle Simpson in February 2007 after the deal was negotiated by a lawyer for Bacon associate Dennis Karbovanec and a Crown prosecutor, the documents say.Details of the plea bargain are contained in court documents related to new charges against Karbovanec, 27. He faces 11 gun charges after being stopped by Abbotsford police last October, wearing a bullet-proof vest and allegedly hiding a loaded 9-mm Luger and silencer in a secret compartment in his leased GMC Yukon.The 2007 plea bargain resulted in a conviction for possession of a prohibited weapon and ammunition and a lifetime firearms ban. Documents available Monday did not disclose the charges that led to the deal.The surrender of the firearms and explosives was arranged in phone calls between Simpson and Jamie Bacon, the youngest of three brothers, who survived a brazen murder attempt at a busy Abbotsford intersection last week.Jamie, 23, is facing his own series of gun and drug charges laid last May as police issued an extraordinary public warning about death threats to the brothers and their associates.Karbovanec was also recently targeted in a shooting, arriving at Mission Memorial Hospital Dec. 31 with two bullet wounds and wearing a bullet-proof vest. He was treated and left, refusing to cooperate with police.Simpson said in the warrant application that when Karbovanec was arrested three months ago, he tried to give his vehicle to two associates who arrived at the scene, but it was towed to Abbotsford police headquarters.A police search uncovered a balaclava, gloves and a police scanner as well as the gun and silencer.
Police were assisted by Paul Vogt, of the Canada Border Services Agency, an expert in vehicle concealment, who helped find the hidden compartment, Simpson said."Vogt described this compartment as one of the most sophisticated he had seen in 16 years of experience in the field," the document said.The next day, investigators arranged to have the Yukon towed to the RCMP's secure lot in Surrey, as two plainclothes officers followed.A black Mercedes leased to Jonathan Bacon followed the tow truck, the search warrant document says."The tow truck stopped at a red light, while the Mercedes drove along the right shoulder of the roadway and came to a position parallel to the GMC Yukon. The Mercedes then stopped and the driver exited, approached the front passenger door of the GMC and extended his hand in a motion to open the door," Simpson said in his application. "Both officers drew their weapons and ordered the male away from the GMC. At this time, the male re-entered the Mercedes and drove off."Simpson said the two officers were not sure if the male was Jonathan or middle brother Jarrod, who is also facing gun charges and out on bail
