Canadian police say they have arrested 156 Hells Angels biker gang members and their associates after conducting more than 80 investigations going back to 1995.

Steven Chabot, Quebec provincial police's deputy director general, said Thursday that the gang members face charges including first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and gangsterism.

Police also seized five Hells Angels bunkers throughout the province and claim they shut down the biker gang's East Coast operation.

Police from Quebec, New Brunswick, the Dominican Republic and France were involved in the investigations.
