Shelburne Police Look for Fraud Suspect

Shelburne | by Jill Young  

A man allegedly stole $26,000 through a fraudulent transaction that happened in Shelburne.

Shelburne Police are hoping to identify a suspect in a fraud case.

Police say a bank account that was opened at a Shelburne bank using fraudulent ID and a business cheque from a company in Manitoba, payable to a Saskatchewan company was deposited.

The suspect went to other banks elsewhere and withdrew the funds before either company noticed.

Though this fraud happened about a year ago, it wasn't initially reported to Shelburne Police as the investigation started with the banks and police services in western Canada.

The money taken was believed to be around $26,000 dollars.

Police are looking to identify the suspect and a photo is posted on our website and Facebook page.
