Lakha Trucking Ltd Owners Lakhbir, Baltej and Nasib Kaur Charged With Fraud

Lakha Trucking Ltd: If you are going to plan a crime, try to at least think it through. Lakhbir Singh Dhaliwal, Baltej Singh Dhaliwal and Nasib Kaur Dhaliwal have all been charged with fraud. The fraud involved their own vehicles?

Calgary police say charges have been laid against two men and a woman who are owners of Lakha Trucking Ltd. The alleged have said to have committed a number of frauds involving some of the big rigs they owned.

Investigators say members investigating auto thefts last year in Calgary discovered a significant number of tractor-trailers that had not been recovered. Officials say that was unusual because, on average, nearly 90 per cent of stolen vehicles are recovered.

Police soon learned a number of vehicles belonging to one company, Lakha Trucking Ltd., had been reported stolen.

Upon further investigation, detectives learned that all of the vehicles the company reported to them were never actually stolen.

Police say the owners of Lakha Trucking reported the vehicles stolen in order to receive an insurance payout. Once the money was received, police allege the accused then re-vinned the original vehicles in order to hide them. Officials say those vehicles were then sold for profit.

During the course of the investigation, police say the suspects actually received multiple payouts for the same vehicle by repeating the whole process several times since 2009.

Police estimated the suspects used at least eight vehicles to acquire over $350,000.

To date, seven of the vehicles have been recovered from locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan, B.C. and N.W.T.

Lakhbir Singh Dhaliwal, 52, of Calgary is charged with:
Fraud over $5,000
Uttering forged documents
Public mischief
Trafficking in stolen property
Tampering with a motor vehicle VIN
Nasib Kaur Dhaliwal, 52, of Calgary, is charged with:
Fraud over $5,000
Uttering forged documents
Baltej Singh Dhaliwal, 56, of Calgary is charged with:
Fraud over $5,000
Uttering forged documents
Trafficking in stolen property
Police say the situation is very “concerning.”

“This is a concerning trend for many consumers who are facing high insurance premiums,” says Staff Sgt. Graeme Smiley of CPS District Support Unit in a release. “While a majority of the cases we have investigated centre on high-value commercial vehicles, we know that these types of frauds are also happening with personal vehicles.”

All three suspects are expected in court on April 9.
