A Hells Angel who was shot to death in Surrey Aug. 2 once formed a numbered B.C. company that he transferred to an underworld associate who also ended up being murdered, Postmedia has learned.

Before he was gunned down in a Starbucks drive-thru, Suminder “Allie” Grewal had a checkered financial history, with several recent lawsuits filed against him over unpaid debts, including a 2018 mortgage he got from a registered B.C. charity.

But as early as 1999, he was registering companies with the B.C. Corporate Registry that would later become known to police.

Historic corporate records obtained by Postmedia show that Grewal formed 596896 BC Ltd on Dec. 2, 1999.

He listed himself as president and secretary of the numbered company, as well as the principle shareholder.

Grewal stated that he worked as a “businessman” on the records, which do not say what his company’s business was.

Less than two years later, he filed more documents in Victoria, stating that the company has passed a “special resolution” changing its name to Lower Mainland Autoglass Ltd. and was moving to a Richmond address.

The documents said Grewal ceased to be a director on Sept. 1, 2001, with the new president and secretary listed as Jagdip Johal.

In 2009, the auto glass company was dissolved for failing to file annual reports.

Just like Grewal, Johal was shot to death in his car in a busy commercial area of Surrey on Sept. 6, 2012. His wife and young child were in the vehicle with him, but were uninjured.

Unlike Grewal’s case where two young Edmonton men were arrested and charged, Johal’s slaying remains unsolved.

Police found firearms with silencers near the crime scene — a strip mall parking lot near 68th and King George Blvd. They said at the time that Johal was known to them and that his murder was targeted.

He was killed months after his brother Shminder was sentenced to 18 years for a massive cross-border cocaine smuggling operation that involved a Canadian border guard recruited by the gang.

No one from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was available Tuesday to provide updates in either the Grewal or Johal murder cases.

Grewal’s alleged killers, Calvin Junior Powery-Hooker and Nathan James De Jong appeared by video in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday. Their case was adjourned until Oct. 2. They each face one count of first-degree murder.

Postmedia earlier revealed details of Grewal’s troubled financial dealings including defaulting last fall on an $860,000 mortgage he got from the charitable Lohn Foundation and four investors that allowed his A. Grewal Holdings company to buy two investment properties in Maple Ridge.

“Investigations into crimes that have connections to Hells Angels or organized crime are extremely complex and can take a significant amount of resources,”

Grewal’s company took out another loan in May to pay off the earlier debt. Grewal ceased to be a director of the company he founded three years earlier though his wife, a realtor, and a second real estate agent remain directors.

Sgt. Brenda Winpenny, of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, said Tuesday that many organized criminals form companies to cover up their illicit activities.

“Members of organized crime groups, including members of outlaw motorcycle gangs, have a long history of living under the guise of perceived wealth through the investment and involvement in legitimate businesses or businesses that are made to appear legitimate,” Winpenny said, speaking generally.

“Often, however, their wealth, or the perception of it, is false and not based on reality. We have seen, time and time again, their houses of cards crumble when they go to jail, are victims of violence, or their so-called brothers turn on them. It’s also all too often that the spouses and children of those involved in organized crime are left with nothing.”
