Quang Vinh Le Red Scorpion Leader has been arrested in the Philippines in connection with the slaying of six men in a Surrey B.C. highrise in October

Founder of the Red Scorpion gang has been arrested in the Philippines in connection with the slaying of six men in a Surrey B.C. highrise in October 2007.Quang Vinh (Michael) Le, 24, was arrested as he landed in Manila Wednesday on a flight from Vietnam and is to be charged with conspiracy to commit the murder of Corey Lal and first-degree murder in Lal's execution-style slaying.Supt. John Robin, of B.C.'s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said his team uncovered enough evidence against Le to present it to the Crown in the Surrey Six case.``There was a Canada-wide warrant that was issued for Le,'' Robin said. ``We enlisted the assistance of the Filipino authorities and they aided in arresting him.''The counts are identical to those laid in April against fellow Red Scorpion Jamie Bacon, 23.Two other Scorpions - Cody Haevischer and Matt Johnston - have also been charged with conspiring to kill Lal, as well as with the first-degree murders of Lal and five others gunned down in B.C.'s worst gangland slaying.Lal, his brother Michael, Eddie Narong and Ryan Bartolomeo, all young drug dealers, along with two bystanders - fireplace repairman Ed Schellenberg and student Chris Mohan - were shot to death in a penthouse suite in a Surrey apartment 19 months ago.Robin noted that IHIT had promised more arrests in the unprecedented gangland slaughter.``We said we would be making other arrests. This is one of those arrests,'' Robin said. ``Evidence was uncovered that was presented for review to Crown counsel and charges were approved.''An official with the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation said the agency's Interpol representative James Calleja made the arrest.Le is expected to appear in court Thursday before Canada begins proceedings to have him extradited.A Canadian citizen, Le is believed to have left Canada in the spring of 2008. He has a business in Vietnam and also spent time recently in the U.S.Le has a long history with police.Both he and Surrey Six victim Eddie Narong were convicted of manslaughter for their role in a fatal beating in 2000.Narong was only 14 when he took part in the attack on Richard Jung, who was bludgeoned to death in the Hi-Max Karaoke club in Coquitlam, B.C.The death occurred after Le, then a friend of Narong's, was beaten by a group of Korean youths.To retaliate, Le called in more than 20 friends to help him in the assault that led to Jung's death.Le was originally convicted of second-degree murder in the death, but won a new trial on appeal, then pleaded guilty to manslaughter. Narong, who testified against some of his co-accused, also pleaded guilty to manslaughter.Le and Narong had a falling out after Narong testified.Some of those convicted went on to form the Red Scorpions while in jail. The gang members sported scorpion tattoos and were involved in drug trafficking in Coquitlam and other Lower Mainland suburbs.
