Suspect charged in extensive fraud cases targeting Kingston organizations
Kingston Police have arrested a local resident who targeted two Kingston-based organizations, defrauding them both in different ways.
The investigation, which police referred to as “extensive,” began in February 2023, when Kingston Police received a report of fraud from the Kingston Women’s Soccer Club, a non-profit organization for women’s recreational soccer (over the age of 16).
“The group reported that they had been defrauded of a significant amount of money over several years,” Kingston Police said in a press release on Monday, May 15, 2023.
According to police, a few days after receiving the fraud report from the Soccer Club, Kingston Police were contacted by the Kingston Community Credit Union, who reported a related cheque fraud.
The investigation led the arrest of the suspect on Wednesday, May 10, 2023. The suspect, who was not named by police, was formerly affiliated with the Kingston Women’s Soccer Club, and “will be charged with 10 criminal offences,” Kingston Police said.
Those charges include:
- Fraud exceeding $5,000
- Causing another person to act on a forged document
- Criminal breach of trust
