Police investigation nets fraud charges
An investigation was launched in April by members of the police service's alternative response unit. Using video evidence and witness statements, officers were able to identify the suspect as a former employee who left the company in the fall of 2011.
The investigation revealed that the suspect used the credit card on 49 occasions; thereby, defrauding his past employer of more than $2,400 at various service stations. He was arrested Sept. 27 and is charged with one count of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, using a stolen credit card and fraud under $5,000.
