Four members of the Hells Angels have been arrested in northwest Spain for allegedly smuggling 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of cocaine into the county with the aim of distributing it, the Interior Ministry said in a statement Saturday.

The arrest was filmed by Spanish police and the footage uploaded to YouTube. One of those detained is believed to have arrived with the drugs by boat, according to the video.

The Vancouver Sun reports that the four Canadians arrested are all from B.C. and include two full-patch members — Jason Cyrus Arkinstall of Mission and Chad John Wilson of Haney — and associates Scott Smitna and Michael Dryborough.

The men, all Canadians, were arrested near the coastal city of Pontevedra, where one had arrived by yacht, allegedly having sailed from Colombia with the drugs.

One of the three men who met the yacht was "a known member" of the San Diego chapter of the Hells Angels and another had been under investigation for suspected drug smuggling by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the statement said.
