A fraud investigation in Lloydminster has led to 32 charges.
Police were first called to the case in July of 2014, when a local business caught one of their employees stealing. After an in-depth investigation, it was found that $44,000 was taken from the company. A 43 year-old woman now faces 11 counts of fraud, 11 counts of theft, and 10 counts of uttering a forged document. She is scheduled to appear in court on May 5th.
“Fraud is a crime that occurs somewhat regularly, however, the high dollar value is not as common,” said Constable Grant Kirzinger. “Frauds can range from a phone scam to sophisticated systems of syphoning money from larger companies. It is always a good idea to monitor your bank accounts and check your statements.”
