Motorists are able to use 72nd Avenue but there remains a sizable police presence in the 23700 block.

Accused killer has lengthy criminal history

A Langley man is in custody and charged with a Sunday killing.

The man charged with murdering a Hells Angel in Langley has a violent criminal past.

Jason Francis Wallace, 27, was charged with second degree murder Tuesday in the death of Robert Keith Green, 56.

Green was a longtime member of the Hells Angels. He was found dying on a property in the 23700 block of 72nd Avenue Sunday at 10:30 a.m., when Langley RCMP went to investigate a “suspicious occurrence.” Green died at the scene.

Green was a senior member of the Hells Angels, who had been a member of Vancouver’s East End chapter, the elite Nomads chapter, and most recently Mission City chapter.

On Tuesday, IHIT announced the charge against Wallace. In the past, local RCMP have identified Wallace as a member of the 856 Gang founded in Aldergrove.

Wallace was arrested Monday during a roadside stop by Surrey RCMP officers.

In 2007, Wallace, then 18, was charged with attempted murder for the unprovoked stabbing of another teenager after a Langley graduation party.

The attack punctured the victim’s lung. Wallace pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, and was handed a sentence of house arrest and probation. During sentencing, the judge accepted evidence that Wallace had cut ties to the 856 Gang.

But by 2010, he was again being described as an 856 Gang member after he allegedly tried to run over a man with a truck, in the parking lot of the Aldergrove Community Police Office.

One of his co-accused was eventually convicted of theft for taking the victim’s cellphone, but Wallace’s charges were eventually dropped.

In 2015, Wallace was one of the men arrested after a large stash of drugs and chemicals was found in a house in the 4600 block of 236th Street. He was charged with a number of counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and again described by police as a member of the 856 Gang.

IHIT investigators are still looking for witnesses to the crime, who they believe fled the scene before police arrived.

The motive for the killing remains unclear, said IHIT spokesperson Cpl. Meghan Foster.

“Homicides related to organized crime can be complicated and lengthy,” Foster said. “The quick arrest and charge approval speaks to the tenacity of all agencies involved, and while this is a positive step in this investigation, there is still much work to be done at this early stage.”

Police are encouraging anyone with information to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. To remain anonymous, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
