Wallace’s drug sentencing delayed again

Jason Wallace was scheduled to be sentenced on Friday for six counts of drug trafficking

A Langley man involved in a large drug-making operation where more than $400,000 worth of hard drugs were seized, has had his sentencing delayed again.

Jason Wallace, 27, was scheduled to be sentenced on Friday but has been given a new date of Sept. 14 in Supreme Court in New Westminster.

Wallace pleaded guilty to six counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking in the spring.

In July, a mix-up led to Wallace not being sentenced.

On that day, Wallace appeared via video conference, only to learn from the judge that he must be present in court for sentencing.

Wallace is behind bars, charged in the killing of high ranking Hells Angel Robert Green who was shot and killed at a Langley property in October, 2016.

On Nov. 20, Wallace will appear in a Surrey Provincial courtroom for a preliminary hearing in connection with the murder charge.

A preliminary hearing determines whether there is enough evidence to go to trial and to examine the evidence in the case. The information in the hearing is banned from publication.

The drug charges to which Wallace pleaded guilty, stem from a July 2014 arrest when B.C.’s gang unit shut down a large drug making facility based out of a Langley mansion.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit seized $400,000 worth of cocaine, meth, heroin, and a large quantity of drug-making paraphernalia from a 10,000-square-foot home in the 4600 block of 236 Street.

On the day police executed the warrant, two men were arrested in connection to the drug house. One was Leonard Pelletier and the other was Jason Wallace. Neither was charged until 2015.

Pelletier, 49, is on trial, charged with five counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of obstructing a police officer.

His trial continues Nov. 20 in Supreme Court.
