WALLBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Ont. — Ontario Provincial Police say nine people they describe as "outlaw motorcycle gang members" are facing charges following an incident in Ontario's cottage country.

Police say officers were called to a business on Highway 69 in the Parry Sound area last Friday.

It's alleged some of the accused distracted an employee at the business while the others pried open an automatic banking machine.

Seven people from Regina, one from Sudbury, Ont., and one from Coniston, Ont., are each charged with mischief over $5,000 and theft over $5,000.

The nine accused — Ronald Baker, 51, Matthew Bossenberry, 28, Adam Hannant, 23, Celeste Hannant, 44, Mark Hannant, 47, Riley Michalicz, 25, Kelly Powell, 29, all of Regina, George Murphy, 46, of Sudbury, and Antonio Rinandi, 50, of Coniston — are to appear in court in Parry Sound.

Police say the investigation included the two OPP detachments, the OPP biker enforcement unit and the Anishinabek Police Service and is ongoing.
