Funeral for Tom Gisby
|Sheck is no stranger to Charter arguments. In 2012 the court found Sheck’s Charter rights were violated by lengthy court delays in a firearms’ trial, but rejected a bid to drop criminal charges. A Judge said there were a number of reasons why Sheck’s firearms case took more than 42 months to get to sentencing, including constitutional challenges launched by Sheck’s legal team. He was eventually sentenced to 18 months.|
Sheck was caught with a loaded Glock in his Louis Vuitton man purse in a Surrey Earl’s restaurant in November 2010. Gang cops were doing surveillance on him at the time.
The long-running federal investigation also saw $16 million seized.
|Sheck remains wanted in Washington State, where he was indicted in January 2013 on 22 counts of conspiracy and money laundering more than $5 million in drug profits. 1,710 pounds of cocaine, 123 pounds of ecstasy and 12 guns were seized. Sheck boasted to undercover police about being a big-time B.C. gangster, about funding terrorism and about corrupting officials.|
The money-laundering offences occurred while Sheck was out on bail. Many large transfers were destined for the Dominican Republic.
|In April 2012 B.C. resident Tom Gisby was in Mexico after learning he was targeted in retaliation for the shooting that left gangster Jonathan Bacon dead. Gisby knew the threat against him was real even before his motorhome was firebombed, an attack in which he suffered superficial burns.|
Sheck was a close associate of the late Tom Gisby. Gisby was gunned down in a Starbucks in Nuevo Vallarta by two gunman who fled the scene. It came the same day that UN B.C. gangster Salih Abdulaziz Sahba was shot to death in Sinaloa. A day later, gangster Sandip Duhre was gunned down in the lobby of the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver.
